Installation: Aqua Proof Paste
Aqua Proof Paste is the magic goop for installing bottom brackets and keeping them quiet. In the Kogel office it's known as 'Shut up Grease'.
Aqua Proof is developed by Morgan Blue from Belgium for the off shore industry. It's salt water resistant, does not degrade over time and a long time favorite of the UCI world tour mechanics. It works on any pressed or threaded surface to avoid corrosion. You'll find yourself using it for a lot more than just installing bottom brackets.
The 5ml size is for a single bottom bracket installation, the 200ml jar will last a long time, even for professional use.
Ball bearings are wear items, similar to the chain on your bicycle. While we went out of our way to present you with the best possible product, your Kogel Bearings do require some maintenance and a new seal kit from time to time. Please download this service document from our manuals section for a step by step on how to keep your bearings running smoothly.
Kogel Bearings strives for best-in-industry product support. Our hybrid and full ceramic bearings are covered under our 1+1 year warranty, which guarantees that we will keep you on the road for two years, pending on annual bearing service. Read more about our philosophy in this blog post.
