688 LLU MAX BO - MAX-Type, Black-Oxide, ABEC-3 Radial Suspension Bearing - 8 x 16 x 5mm

Over two decades ago, Enduro Bearings introduced MAX-type bearings specifically for bicycles to tackle the challenges associated with mountain bike pivots. These MAX bearings offer a 35-40% increase in load capacity compared to standard radial bearings by integrating a special design. These bearings feature a maximum number of balls (full-complement) inserted into the bearing, along with deeper race grooves, providing heightened lateral support. This counters the twisting and multi-directional forces common in mountain bike pivots. The MAX-type ABEC-3 bearing, treated with Black-Oxide, showcases deep-groove design races, Grade 10 balls, and full-contact, double-lip, labyrinth (LLU) seals. This setup ensures maximum protection against environmental elements while maintaining a 90% fill of Almagard Extra High-Pressure Grease. Additionally, the Black-Oxide/Magnetite coating offers added corrosion resistance and extended performance reliability.

Numerous bicycle brands have utilized this bearing as a suspension pivot bearing.

Within the Enduro line, bearing options span High-Carbon Chromium Steel, 440C Stainless Steel, Ceramic-Hybrid, and XD-15 with Ceramic or Stainless Balls. These bearings are consistently engineered with deep groove races to accommodate the largest possible balls. All standard bearings in our inventory feature dual-lip seals navigating micro grooves, creating a comprehensive labyrinth that ensures optimal protection against environmental factors.
