Wheel bearings are a complicated matter. There are too many combinations between all brands to list them all on our web site.

Before ordering, we suggest you contact us by email or phone to discuss your wheels and which bearings you need.

To make things a bit easier, we have simplified the pricing: If you need 4 bearings, choose WB-4 we will send you all the bearings for your hubs, but do not include the freehub. If you want to include the freehub bearings, just choose the WB6 option.

Customer reviews
"I'm really blown away by the difference my Kogel bearing swap has made. I replaced all my wheel bearings and the bottom bracket. The difference has been incredible. On the first ride, I felt a noticeable smoothness and as time wore on it got even better. I imagine this is due to break in. Suddenly my riding buddies are complaining that I'm too fast. Installation was pretty easy. I did purchase a couple low cost tools for the wheel bearings and made my own bottom bracket press from Home Depot. The bearings were pricey enough that I had to get the wife's permission but overall, I'm extremely satisfied."

"The ceramic bearing upgrade is the most impactful change you can make to your otherwise ideal bike! Kogel provides the quality and pricing to make it happen! My original bearings had corrosion from many years of use and washing the bike. This was a fantastic upgrade that was worth the investment."

Frequently asked questions

What makes Kogel ceramic wheel bearings different?

Why upgrade to Kogel ceramic wheel bearings?

Upgrading can significantly reduce friction and wear, improving efficiency and performance, especially if your current bearings are worn or contaminated.

How can I tell if my wheel bearings need to be serviced?

The easiest check is to pull the wheel from the bike, remove the dust covers if they are easy to remove and spin the axle with your fingers. You’re looking for a rough/gritty feel or listen for dry bearings (you will hear a swishy sound to stay fully scientific. If the bearings are dry or contaminated, you will need to service them. Here is a manual.

Will I notice a difference with ceramic wheel bearings?

A high-quality ceramic bearing is the more developed brother of a stock bearing: races are hardened and polished to a mirror finish, balls are more perfectly round than any steel ball can ever be and we spent a lot of time perfecting our grease and seals to perform best in any given conditions.

In the words of US National Downhill Champion Neko Mulally: “you don’t really feel the difference between a good and a bad bearing, it is reflected in your race time at the end of the day. As a rider I do nothing differently and go faster"
