Bart Schouten, founder of C-BEAR and passionate cyclist, was searching for high-quality bearings, with less friction and increased durability all at an affordable price. The ceramic bearings from the Belgium brand unite all these characteristics. KISS (Keep it simple and straight-forward) is the principle used to design these bearings. Unnecessary spacers, washers and wave washers are not used here. Squeaks, crunches and bearing play are also not an issue.
C-BEAR offers two types of ceramic bearings. The Race bearings have the lowest amount of friction and are made for dry street conditions. The Cyclocross/MTB bearings are made for wet conditions and unpaved roads or trails with their special grease and seals.
C-BEAR bearings are also ridden for many kilometres by the Lotto Soudal and Wanty-Groupe Gobert professional teams in some of the most challenging conditions.
