Bearing is an important element of cycling as they reduce friction, enhances the movements between two objects and also importantly, provides the enjoyment we want. 

We do not offer ceramic bearings in this selection as we feel it is not really beneficial except it could be just another excuse to dig into the consumers' wallets. However the aftermarket ceramic bearings could be fitted into our hubs with the correct sizes.  

Rather it is more crucial to design using bearings of an adequate size / type so that they are not subjected to overloadings. Very often undersize bearings are used in hubs in the bid the save a few grams so it may look more attractive to the buyer. 

However in our design, we prefer to use the right bearing sizes for the application. And yes, they are just a few grams more than the more common smaller sizes used. When the bearings are not subjected to overload, one will find that they become even smoother after many uses when they are worn-in.
