TBT Bearings (Tiramic Bearing Technology) deliver outstanding performance. Ceramic balls are 60% lighter than steel, extremely durable, smoother and accelerate faster than their steel counterparts. The starting torque of Tiramic Bearings is only 74% of normal bearings while the turning torque is only 67% of normal bearings. Both these factors significantly reduce chain drag making pedalling lighter and your ride much smoother.
AVT shares a lot of the same properties as Kevlar. We are not aiming to stop bullets, but the strength of Kevlar is one of the key factors we wanted from AVT in our wheels.Weight for weight,AVT is eight times stronger than steel, resistant to high temperatures, fatigue, impact and the corrosion from chemicals or saltwater.
