i have also read that the Tune hubs (higher end models) come with hybrid ceramic bearings, just dont remember where. if someone could chime in and confirm this it would be nice.
Well I think I mentioned it before, in their description of the Tune wheels the folk at Poshbikes mention Tune's using ceramic bearing for their hubs....
Excerpt from the blurb:
"Tune hubs will withstand the highest spoke tension (Less possibility of wind-up or buckling), they use hybrid or full ceramic bearings (Halving friction & rolling resistance), and are the lightest and highest precision hubs in production, available in all spoke counts, and colours."
The Campagnolo Record Bottom Bracket comes with SKF bearings
SKF, a specialist company having it's roots in Germany has subsidiaries allover the globe.
Whike it's reassuring to find such a high quality bearing in a BB it doesn't automatically imply it's made of ceramic either. SKF makes about any bearing imaginable.
those are Bottom brackets, not hubs.
I'm well aware of that but wouldn't you think that if they'd use ceramic bearings in their BBs, they'd also be using those for the hubs?
This is SOTA equipment after all and it wouldn't be making sense if they didn't put at least hybrid bearings in the hubs either.
P.S. If you really want to be 100%, why not ask Tune?
