The lowest friction from ceramic bearings
or: why we are not obsessed with building the lightest running bearingsRead it!
Welcome to kogel bearings
At Kogel Bearings , we believe ceramic bearings set the gold standard for your bicycle bottom bracket, derailleur pulleys and wheel bearings.
The Silicon Nitride used to make ceramic bearings combines a set of material properties that make it perfect for bicycle bearings.
The material is hard, resistant to wear, can be made into perfectly round balls with super tight tolerances and can be polished smoother than any metal. On top of all that, ceramic bearings do not rust or oxidize.
That's why we offer only podium-grade ceramic bearings in all our products.

I have been on my fair share of bikes and cranks in my 10 years as a professional cyclist and Kogel Bearings are by far the best I have ever ridden.
