Ever since then, we have meticulously designed all of our bearing components to work together in perfect harmony, which is why our bearings usually run more smoothly than anyone else’s. Proof positive: FAG’s newly designed “Generation C” deep groove ball bearings generate 35 % less friction than the previous generation. Service life and performance are significantly increased while energy consumption is dramatically reduced.
Another notorious energy hog – weight – meets its match as we employ new, higher efficiency materials. For example, combining our innovative high-performance Cronitect® stainless steel with ceramic balls led us to develop a hybrid bearing with “recordbreaking” potential. With their incredibly smooth operation, long service life, and maximum corrosion resistance, these bearings are currently taking the market for racing bicycles by storm.
