7902 2RS MAX - Angular-Contact, MAX-Design, ABEC-3, radial suspension bearing - 15mm x 28mm x 7mm
MAX bearings are designed without retainers and 40% more balls than standard ABEC 3 or 5 bearings. This enables them to carry a much higher load and makes them perfect for frame pivots. They are also packed with CRC Marine Grease, which will not wash out or break down when wet ensuring your frame bearings last even longer.

Enduro Bearings pioneered MAX type bearings over 20 years ago for bicycles to address the challenges associated with mountain bike pivots. MAX-type bearings provide 35-40% more load capacity than standard radial bearings by utilizing a special design where the maximum number of balls are inserted into the bearing, via a custom ground slot in the races. The additional balls, combined with deep race grooves in these bearings provide greater lateral support for the twisting and multi-directional forces associated with mountain bike pivots. This ABEC-3 bearing features deep-groove design races, with grade 10 balls and full-contact, double-rubber seals for superior protection against the elements, while keeping the 90% fill of Almagard extra high pressure grease inside. When properly installed and adjusted, Enduro Angular Contact (A/C) bearings engage all of the bearing's balls to spread the force over a larger surface area, decreasing friction, minimizing wear and increasing bearing life.
This bearing has been used as a suspension pivot bearing by Santa Cruz.
