Mobility does not compromise. Motorcycles and motor scooters are not just for reliably getting people from A to B, but also for having fun. Wear due to rust and heavy use, poor performance due to bearing points contaminated by grease and dirt, rough rides, and high maintenance and cost are all things nobody wants. Our plastic plain and rolling bearings mean that you don't have to compromise. The high-performance components are tough and low-wear. Because external lubrication has been eliminated, no mixture of grease and dirt can build up at the points where they are used, harm the material, and require painstaking removal. And in contrast to metal, plastic weighs less. Suspension forks, throttle valves, and brakes are just a few of the places where our iglidur plain bearings are used.
Krämer Motorcycles (KMC) were looking for light and maintenance-free bearings for their Supermono racing bike. The solution: iglidur plain bearings, which are used in the link, brake and shift system as well as in the footrests. Additionally, two igubal rod end bearings are used in the foot brake lever. In contrast to metal solutions, igus products are light and, thanks to their dry operation, resistant to dirt and maintenance-free. Furthermore, you can precisely calculate their service life with the igus online tools.
Giprime Hyper Racing is a company that builds centrifugal clutches used in two-stroke racing machines. Clutches of this kind are normally mounted without plain bearings, leading to fast wear. Using highly abrasion-resistant plastic plain bearings greatly increases the service life and eliminates the necessity of replacing the entire coupling.
