″Enduro Bearing Grease GR-001 for Ceramic or High Precision Steel Bearings
Grease supplied in handy 10ml syringe for ease of use.
Grease and Lubricants
We use several special greases which are in general all formulated by combining a base oil with a thickening agent. They lubricate rolling bearings by bleeding a small amount of oil out of the “reservoir” of the grease thickener and into the raceway. The oil provides the elastohydrodynamic lubricating film needed to reduce friction and wear. Greases can also serve as effective seals to protect bearings from contaminants and moisture. For greater loads, especially where vibration or shock loading is likely, such as pivots or headsets, special anti-wear additives can improve grease performance. Likewise, special thickeners and additive packages can augment a grease’s natural resistance to wash-out by water or salt-water spray. Thickeners can also be processed to reduce the noise-generating characteristics of a grease.
For instance, we use Kluber 7272 which specifically addresses the issues of the two very different materials in a ceramic hybrid bearing. This grease only runs better and smoother with time and is highly resistant to washing out. It is engineered to stick to the balls and continually be pulled back into the ball path where it is needed. Other greases can end up pushed out to the edge of the ball path, doing nothing. For our ABEC 3 bearings we use a similar high pressure grease, Mobil XHP 222 which is an excellent and clean rolling grease and also has excellent water displacement characteristics. For the MAX type bearings and some bottom bracket bearings, we fill the bearings both sides either CRC Marine grade grease for ultimate salt water protection, or Almagard 3752 for ultimate high pressure characteristics. These high pressure greases will not get pushed out by the extreme loads of a suspension bearing pivot for example.″
