It is the small details that make the difference and to which the engineers at DT Swiss place great value. SINC Ceramic ball bearings are based precisely on such details. Thanks to the optimization of these details, you can simply roll off the field, your buddies or your personal best on DT Swiss wheels with a SINC upgrade.
Professional riders choose nothing but SINC Ceramic bearings for their racing bikes. On race day this advantage is certain to them: to know the best bearing technology in their wheels.
SINC ceramic ball bearings have been developed by DT Swiss as a system. They are based on silicon nitride (Si3N4) ceramic material which is extremely durable, wear and corrosion resistant. The bearing rings are made of a specially developed steel alloy adapted to the properties of the ceramic material and are precision ground. This combination reduces rolling resistance to an absolute minimum and provides extended durability over conventional ball bearings. But not only the camp itself is meant as a system. Only by adjusting the tolerances in the thousandth of a millimeter range, exactly matching the tolerances of the bearing seats of DT Swiss hubs, do SINC Ceramic bearings achieve their full performance and offer the decisive advantage over competing products.
THE ADVANTAGES OF DT SWISS HUBS WITH SINC CERAMIC -Also when installed, the optimal distance between ceramic balls and bearing ring (bearing clearance) is ensured. This ensures the lowest possible rolling resistance and prevents bearing wear.
-By the combination of ceramic bearings and steel bearing rings (hybrid bearings), there can be no corrosion between balls and ring, which significantly improves the life. In addition, the bearing ring is permanently smoothed by the extremely hard balls, which ensures a permanently minimal rolling resistance.
-The bearing cage, which holds the balls in position, consists of a material adapted to the ceramic balls and is specifically designed for each bearing size. As a result, the balls and cage fit together perfectly, which further minimizes friction in the bearing.
-The high-quality sealing system of SINC Ceramic bearings guarantees optimal operation with minimum friction under all conditions. This is achieved by various measures: Only on the outside, a sealing ring is used, on the inside, only a guard ring is applied. For a perfect concentricity of the seal and thus minimal rolling resistance, the seal seat is precision ground. This technology is unique in the world and is only used with SINC Ceramic bearings.
-Each DT Swiss SINC bearing is individually tested and tested.
