S688 LLB - Stainless Steel, Radial Bearing (C3 clearance) - 8mm x 16mm x 5mm -
This radial bearing features 440C stainless steel alloy races and Grade 10 balls with dual-seals and 90% fill with Kluber NBU52 ultra-smooth and sticky, water-proof grease to withstand daily abuse of use and the elements.
This bearing is used primarily in lightweight hubs, pedals, derailleur pulleys and in some full suspension designs though the MAX-type version of this bearing is better suited for pivot applications.
Not all stainless steel is created equal.
Enduro only uses 440C stainless steel balls and races to provide long life and superior corrosion resistance in applications and environments that may be less than ideal. 440C has the highest strength, hardness, and wear resistance of all the standard 440-series stainless alloys with high carbon content. As expected, it is also the most expensive of the 440 series alloys and requires multiple rounds of heat treatment and cryogenic treatment to achieve its superior mechanical properties. Though stainless steel has 20% less load capacity and is slightly softer than our standard 52100 chromium steel used in most of our bearings, stainless steel is an excellent alternative for use in wet conditions, if you wash your bike often, or where sweat can be a problem.
Enduro stainless bearings all carry a full two year anti-corrosion warranty.
The Enduro line of bearings are available in high-carbon chromium steel, 440C stainless steel, ceramic-hybrid and XD-15 with ceramic or stainless balls. Our bearings are always engineered with deepest groove races possible to accommodate the largest balls and feature dual-lip seals that ride in a micro-groove creating a full labyrinth to provide superior protection against the elements.
