SRAM’s BlackBox Ceramic Derailleur Pulley’s are their most efficient design. Though the pulleys are constructed from the same material the internals are vastly different. Ceramic bearings run on polished stainless steel races, offering a large reduction in friction. Run these next to standard pulleys and the difference is obvious.
SRAM’s GXP BlackBox Ceramic Bottom Bracket is the bottom bracket you get in their Red Groupset.
Ceramic bearings offer lower rolling resistance, reducing mechanical drag. It’s one of the major areas you can improve your efficiency without extra training. Lower mechanical drag ultimately means more power where the tire meets the road.
Tacx enters the market with jockey wheels for your rear derailleur with ceramic bearings. The upsides should be well established by now. Ceramic bearings produce lower rates of friction, for less drive train loss and literally crush dirt – so bearings stay round and smooth.
Now since Tacx does not make bearings there are rumors that keep floating around that...read more
Tiso’s sole goal is to build replacement parts that are lighter than their outgoing OEM counter parts.
