Enduro Max Bearings

Designed specifically for suspension pivots, Enduro Bearings pioneered MAX type bearings for bicycles to address the challenges associated specifically with mountain bike suspension pivots – in many places on a bicycle, such as in hubs, primary bearing wear is the result of thousands of revolutions. In suspension pivots, the bearings may never move more than 1/2 of a rotation but are subject to very high impact loads.

Enduro MAX bearings have 35-40% more load capacity than standard radial bearings. We accomplish this with a special design where the maximum number of balls are inserted into the bearing. The race grooves are deeper on these bearings for more lateral support for the twisting and multiple forces associated with mountain bike pivots. LLU seals give maximum protection against the elements, while keeping the 90% fill of Almagard Extra High Pressure Grease inside.
