Angular contact bearings provide maximum load distribution across all of the ball bearings unlike standard bearings which load only those at the bottom of the bearing. This load distribution ensures bearing life is increased drastically allowing for more time spent in the saddle than the workshop.

SMR 15267LB - Stainless Steel Radial Bearing (C3 clearance) - 15mm x 26mm x 7mm
Not all stainless steel is created equal.
Enduro only uses 440C stainless steel balls and races to provide long life and superior corrosion resistance in applications and environments that may be less than ideal. 440C has the highest strength, hardness, and wear resistance of all the standard 440-series stainless alloys with high carbon content. As expected, it is also the most expensive of the 440 series alloys and requires multiple rounds of heat treatment and cryogenic treatment to achieve its superior mechanical properties. Though stainless steel has 20% less load capacity and is slightly softer than our standard 52100 chromium steel used in most of our bearings, stainless steel is an excellent alternative for use in wet conditions, if you wash your bike often, or where sweat can be a problem.
Enduro stainless bearings all carry a full two year anti-corrosion warranty.
