Technically, the OSPW system is equipped with high-performance bearings and special ceramic balls made of third-grade silicon nitrite (best grade achieved for ceramic bearings). The ball bearing cage is made of reinforced polyamide, with a hardened steel race and polished groove. The CERAMICSPEED bearing balls are 15% harder, 100% more flexible and 99% more resilient than standard ceramic balls. CERAMICSPEED bearings are considered to be the best ceramic bearings worldwide.
Compared to the already high-quality standard bearings from CeramicSpeed, the "coated" version has a wafer-thin protective layer applied to the bearing rings. As a result, the latter become even harder, have a life cycle that is 60% longer and have even lower rolling resistance.
