The motion plastic specialist will have a range of their lightweight and self-lubricating bearings for bike applications at the 25th annual Sea Otter Classic bicycling and outdoor sports festival, April 16-19th in Monterey, California.

The Subaru Sea Otter Classic 2015

In all types of cycles, there is one critical factor – the weight of your bike! To achieve top sporting performance or simply enjoy a relaxed ride with no extra effort, igus’ range of lightweight, self-lubricating, and long lasting iglide® plastic bearings increase service life and performance, without adding extra weight.

A standby of bike manufacturers for years, igus’ range of fiber-strengthened plastic bearings, homogenously blended with solid lubricant, can be found in bike suspensions, dropper seat posts, pedals, brakes, derailleurs, and a number of other bicycle applications.

In addition to their light weight, iglide bearings are resistant against corrosion and have no ability to rust, dampen vibrations, and maintain a constant coefficient of friction, even while riding through dirt and water.

igus, also a sponsor of the Rocky Mountain racing team, will have a number of bicycle application using igus solutions on display at Sea Otter, in booth 376 – next to the main awards stage, and industry specialists will be on hand to give expert advice and technical support.
