Product Description


This kit is known as CeramicSpeed Lightweight-3 Ceramic Bearing Wheel Kit. Lightweight is the cost-be-damned wheel manufacturer who already supplies CeramicSpeed bearings with many of their wheels. If you’re reading this, you’re either replacing your CeramicSpeed bearings because you’ve ridden them thousands of miles in the worst conditions, or you want to upgrade your wheels so you can ride them in the worst conditions and still have nearly friction-free bearings. 

Lightweight-3 can be installed in Obermayer wheels from 2014, the standard, Schwarz, and Weiss versions. This version is unique as the front bearings fit in Lightweight-designed hubs, and the rear are for DT Swiss-designed hubs and cassette (which is hidden underneath the carbon).

CeramicSpeed utilizes Grade 3 Silicon Nitride balls that possess the best possible surface finish and roundness. In testing, the balls are 400% smoother, 128% harder, and 58% lighter than standard steel balls found in most bike components. They’re more than 100% smoother and 15% harder than standard ceramic balls. The balls are installed into hardened steel races in dust-free clean rooms and then checked again before assembly is complete. Not only is low friction the result, but so is increased bearing life. Like three to five times longer than standard bearings.

If you replace all your bike’s bearings with CeramicSpeed, you could be looking at a savings of 25 seconds in 40km if you’re riding at 48kph. The savings goes up to two minutes if you’re riding at 32kph. Extend that to an Ironman-length ride, and the savings could vary from 1:50, if you’re going 48kph to nine minutes if you’re going 32kph.

Another step they take in assuring the lowest-possible frictional drag is using grease they designed as lubricant. It comes in the bearings and a syringe comes with the bearings as well.

The kit comes with the six bearings (two for the front, two for the rear, two for the cassette body), seals, grease, and sticker sheet.

This CeramicSpeed Lightweight-3 Ceramic Bearing Kit adds even more speed to the Obermayer wheels.
