Bicycle design - performance meets comfort

Light and robust plain bearings for impacts, edge loads and dirt

Stiffness in combination with vibration dampening and wear resistance? Impossible for metallic plain bearings, but iglide® plastic plain bearings can do it!

The advantages listed here have been proven in practice in millions of cases:

Self-lubricating

Weight saving

Thin-walled and space saving

Best specifications, even on light carbon or aluminum shafts and tubes

Corrosion resistant

High wear resistance and durability

Self-lubricating plain bearings for road and mountain bikes

 

Wear-resistant self-lubricating plastic plain bearings for road and mountain bikes.

In pedals, seatposts, brakes, brake levers, shocks, suspension forks, derailleurs and many more parts – igus® bearings are already used in many different parts from the broadest range of manufacturers. Here, you will find several potential uses for iglide®bearings in bikes.

Bicycle technology application examples

Full-suspension mountain bike

A leading manufacturer of full-suspension mountain bikes has developed one of its most innovative bikes to date.

Full-suspension mountain bike    

Suspension forks

This suspension fork uses four iglide® J plastic bushings, which are around five times lighter than metallic bearings of the same size.

Suspension forks    

Mountain bike

This mountain bike won the Gold, Silver and Bronze medals at the 2004 Olympics. iglide® G300 plastic bushings are used in the derailleur.

Mountain bike    

Pedals for mountain bikes

In this application, metallic ball bearings and DU bushings have been replaced by lighter iglide® flange bearings.
