The CeramicSpeed SLT (Solid Lubrication Technology) Bearing for Headsets: OHD (Optimized Headset Design), features a unique combination of an oil-encapsulated solid plastic polymer and stainless-steel materials which results in a self-lubricating, corrosion-resistant, and maintenance-free bearing.
The unique solid polymer of our SLT Bearings remedies two of the most common causes behind bearing failure: the absence of lubrication and grease contamination through dirt ingress. The micropores in the otherwise solid polymer evenly distribute just enough oil to keep the bearing well-lubricated, while also containing sufficient oil for it to be self-lubricating over the lifespan of the bearing – even when ridden in the harshest of conditions.
KEEPING CORROSION AT BAY
Even though an iconic Canadian folk singer once claimed that “Rust Never Sleeps”, we feel confident that we’ve put it down for the count. The combination of an outer seal and the solid polymer makes it almost impossible for water and contaminants to penetrate our SLT Bearings. If moisture should get inside, the stainless steel material of the bearing races and balls turns worries about corrosion into yesterday’s fears.
The CeramicSpeed SLT OHD Bearing is designed, developed, and hand-built in Denmark and comes with a lifetime warranty.
NO ROOM FOR PLAY
When you’re ripping down a rugged trail at full speed trying to maneuver between rocks and roots, the last thing you want to feel is the rear end of your bike wobbling away underneath you. The extreme durability and self-lubricating capabilities of our OPD (Optimized Pivot Design) SLT Bearings leave no room for axial play to occur, keeping you in a state of control and safety when you need it the most.
KEEP YOUR HEAD(SET)
Headset bearings are burdened with the unforgiving task of sitting in one of the most exposed areas on a bike, making them especially vulnerable to external contaminants that’ll eventually wear them out. To add to the hardship, the trend of modern-day bike design to feature fully integrated cockpits has turned a once-simple maintenance job into a tricky and laborious task.
Our OHD (Optimized Headset Design) SLT Bearings will not only protect and prolong the lifespan of your bearings, but they’ll also make sure you don’t break the bank with workshop bills.
This kit includes the upper and lower bearing only, to replace the stock bearings in a Scott Spark headset. The compression ring, crown race and top cover of the original headset should be carried over.
Upper: 40x52x7mm 45/45°
