Full ceramics will be too brittle for that pedal. The design creates a big lever to push on the bearing, and I'm sure they wouldn't hold up.

Ah didn't read all the title.....yeah I wouldn't use full ceramic for the vistas.
Ceramic races aren't too good with shock loading. The leverage on the bearings will be large so any bumps would likely crack the outer race.

I wondering if steel outer race and zirconia inner would work though. I don't know if that would work at all due to difference in co-eff of heat expansion. With the inner race being in compression it should fair better.

yes i found this bear not for nom use 3804 a odd bearing it "s big bearing, i only till i pull it apart think it use 2 kinds of bearing it may use a cone bear to help the side load with lose ball bearing ,
