Kogel sell the highest quality ceramic bearings for the both very low friction and durability. A cheap ceramic bearing is often worse than a decent steel bearing. We carefully selected to offer Kogel bearing upgrades for 3 main reasons.

  • Extremely high performance and quality
  • Offer a specific options for off road use – the best bearings in the world are no good if grit gets into them – we believe kogel’s mtb and cx options are world leading for that purpose
  • Highest level of customer focus and support.

Due to the current 4.7 billion bottom bracket standards (and then there are wheel hubs….) We are not listing all the options here.

To purchase bearings please contact me on –  info@zerofrictioncycling.com.au , and I will email an invoice which you can pay via EFT / Credit Card or Paypal. If purchasing bearings with an online order for other ZFC goodies you will get a 5% discount on bearings for purchases under $100 and a 10% discount on bearings with purchases over $100.

Please follow link to lead out sports website (Australian importer) to find your specific bearing and RRP. If you need assistance finding out what BB your need don’t hesitate to contact me for assistance – to help I will need to know;

  1. Frame model and year (if you have bb shell width that helps)
  2. Crank – i.e shimano, gxp, Rotor 30mm, 386evo, FSA.
  3. As much hub information as possible if it is for wheels – model, year etc – sometimes pics help too.

BB prices range from $159.99 to $299.99.

For wheel bearings, with Kogel as standard you can purchase in set of either 4 bearings (front and rear hubs) or 6 bearings if you also need to replace freehub bearings. *Note your freehub bearings are always rotating over the axle same as main bearings, not just when freewheeling. If you upgrade main bearings but leave in crappy free hub bearings – it is not as good an upgrade…

Again contact me to ascertain what bearings you need, and usually I can get just two if need just two – halve the set of 4 price.

Wheel bearings – set of 4 – $329.99

Wheel bearings – set of 6 – $414.99.

Kogel also provide a brilliant set of jockey wheel options – from simply  a great upgrade set for your road bike, to cx specific, mtb specific, sram eagle, and their amazing full ceramic ball and race NFI jockey wheels for road – they are amazing – being full ceramic they require no lubricant and have  a no contact seal.

Prices range from $159.99 to $359.99.

**TIME TRIAL GREASE UPGRADE**

Remember we also offer Time Trial Grease upgrade where I ultrasonically clean out the factory grease and replace with Ceramic Speed TT grease – the fastest grease ever tested (it changes properties under pressure to become like a light oil).

Contact to discuss suitability for your needs – requires regular top up maintenance and I adjust fill level depending on intended use / maintenance – but if you want the fastest race bike, between switching to waxing, YBN chain, bearing and grease upgrade – your bike will match the best prepped bikes in the pro peleton!
