40% lower costs, 80% less weight and 100% less maintenance
The "digital bike" and "the bicycle as a vehicle" are two important trends in today's bicycle world, where electrification is expanding the range of possible uses of the bicycle in everyday life.
Save weight, increase service life, minimise maintenance intervals: here, igus comes into play. Dry operating iglidur plain bearings made of high-performance polymers are lightweight, extremely wear-resistant and characterised by very low friction values. They defy shocks and bumps and are more resistant than metallic bearings - especially in extreme environmental conditions. Dirt, temperature, detergents and humidity are no longer challenges. By the elimination of external lubricants, maintenance is also minimised.
