Enduro ABEC-3 bearings start with high-precision Grade 10 Balls are ground within 10/1,000,000? round, which is twice as round as the industry standard, at it’s highest level.
Enduro Bearings uses highest quality 52100 High Carbon Chromium Steel Alloy race material from Japan. There are many suppliers of 52100 material, but they do not all necessarily provide the same quality material. The material for Enduro steel races starts with and extremely-pure, vacuum de-gassed chromium steel alloy that is then hardened to Rockwell HRC 64 by multiple rounds of heat and cryogenic treatment. The material is then cut to size and the races are machined, ground and polished to a mirror finish for ABEC-3 precision and noiseless movement.
Enduro ABEC-3 bearings also feature riveted steel bearing retainers for toughness, and are noise tested to meet or exceed ABEC-3 tolerances
Enduro LLB Type Seals
Our most popular seal type, this is a Nitrile material rubber with a steel insert. Rather than the standard 2RS type seal, we go a step further by machining a groove into the inner race where the seal can rotate with better efficiency and less rolling resistance. Rather than one thick seal lip rubbing on a blunt surface, LLB type utilizes two razor thin sealing lips riding in the groove with light contact. The outside lip keeps the water and contaminates out, while the inner seal retains the grease for smooth function and long intervals between servicing.
