Cycling Australia is excited to be partnering with the world's best ball bearing manufacturer, CyclingCeramic.
CyclingCeramic will be supplying bearings for wheels and bottom brackets used by Cycling Australia's national track team.
The aim of the relationship between CA and Cycling Ceramic is to develop components that produce the most efficient track cycling drive train, via the reduction of friction. Cycling Ceramic bearings are lighter, longer lasting and harder than traditional bearing systems.
"In the pursuit of Commonwealth and Olympic gold, it's important that our athletes have the best possible equipment and components," said Cycling Australia High-Performance Director Simon Jones.
"This partnership shows our commitment to innovation with key partners who will help lead research and development within this space. When races are won or lost by hundredths of a second, every gain counts," he added.
The French manufacturer has been producing world-class components since it was established in 2012 and specialisesin the assembly of ceramic bearings. All products are manufactured and tested to the highest standards.
Ceramic bearings are composed of grade 3 ceramic beads that have been polished for 70 days to achieve the lowest friction in the world and reduce pedalling resistance. This minimizes the cyclists' wattage and means they will be able to take advantage of this energy saving in their final effort.
