CeramicSpeed Oversized Pulley Wheel System - Reliability Test - 1
This article is free thanks to CeramicSpeed.
CeramicSpeed has long been a leader in producing low-friction components, exploiting the best offer from the sector, especially the ceramic components, with which it realizes a whole series of products: steering series, bottom brackets, pulleys, gears, etc.
All CeramicSpeed products are Plug and Play, that means are perfectly compatible with the original, which are quickly replaced without the need for changes or made particular actions.
The new Oversized Pulley Wheel System CeramiSpeed promises a high reduction of friction and improved performance, with results at all negligible.
Let's see how it is done, how it goes and how it behaves in the long run.
How is the CeramicSpeed Oversized Pulley Wheel System
The cage of the OSPW System is made of carbon fiber, the two pulleys in light alloy and large diameter and with 17 teeth, the bearings are made of ceramic, with a coating of material with a thickness of 2 microns. The production is handmade in Denmark. The laboratory tests showed a reduction of friction by 60% compared with the original component, with a 2.4 Watt power gain spared. It comes the special low-friction oil with which to lubricate the pulleys after washing your bicycle, or after exiting in the rain.
There is a specific kit for each type of gearbox and the assembly does not require any particular setup because the product is "Plug and Play", that is perfectly replaceable with the original, as mentioned earlier.
In the next article we will see the assembly.
