Recent years have seen the rapid growth of electric bicycles - or 'E-Bikes' - into the leisure mobility Market. These machines operate as regular bikes until pedalling reaches a certain force, at which point the electric drive activates, providing power assistance. 

Bearings are an integral part of an e-bikes electric drive train system, seen in seat pillars, free wheel hubs, internal gear mechanisms and bottom brackets. 

BTC Engineering products are ideally suited to this application, offering:

  • High load capacity.
  • Longer service life and lower maintenance requirements.
  • Smooth running and low friction properties.
  • A range of sealing options to prevent contamination in the bearings.
  • Corrosion-resistant materials for low wear, especially in dirty and wet environments.
  • Solid lubrication is available, which offers significantly higher volumes for lifetime lubrication.
