They also have custom derailleur pulleys that are aluminum, and feature ceramic bearings and a narrow-wide tooth profile. They are available in multiple sizes for both SRAM and Shimano. Two seal versions are available, though dirty folks should head for the cyclocross variant.

These have the 1+1 year warranty where 1 year is covered, then service your bearings, and another year is covered. Ceramic bearings are covered for two years.

    The ‘impressive’ warranty on bbs is 2 yrs. And ceramic balls wear out the races unless you use super hard nitrogen ss like Enduro does in the XD15. I’m not a buyer until they give out the specs for the races.

    Been using Kogel on my mountain bike for 2 years now with ZERO problems, both in BB and pulleys. Amazing quality with no hassle. It’s impressive in the Texas terrain for sure.

    Have Kogel on my road and CX bike as well. Top Notch company with above quality parts.
