igus to showcase plastic components for the bicycle industry at Interbike, September 20-22 in Las Vegas9/11/2017

Advanced plastic bearings allow for lower weight and maintenance with increased resistance to dirt, dust, water, and more will be on display in booth 24272.

As bicycle designers push the limits on decreasing weight while maximizing durability, motion plastics specialist igus has become the go-to for manufacturers including FOX, Crank Brothers, ibis, and Spank for a range of bike components, including pedals, suspensions, derailleurs, and more.

With 40% lower cost, 80% lower weight, and 100% less maintenance required than other bearing options, igus iglide plastic bearings are an ideal solution for all types of bicycles. Additionally, their thin-walled design is a space saving alternative to metal bearing options, and offers the best specifications, even on lightweight carbon or aluminum shafts/tubes, and the self-lubricating plastic material dampens vibrations, and stands up to high edge loads and impacts.

igus will have a range of solutions for the bicycle industry on display and in use at the 2017 Interbike show in Booth 24272 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas. The “igus bike” will be on display at the show, utilizing igus iglide J, J4, and G300 bearings at 25 individual points. (more information about the igus bike is available at
