Ceramic is well known as the fastest bearings due to very low rolling resistance. This new Full ceramic version has ceramic balls as well as solid ceramic inner and outer race. This way you have ceramic on ceramic and not steel. This produces the perfect spin, no heat, and no vibration. Steel on steel produces vibration. When ceramic balls glide on ceramic races, you get a very smooth ride which translates into speed.
