Ceramic rotational parts are making a huge impact on the cycle scene, Ceramic bearings equal increased speed at a lower effort and increased durability for your high-end components.
Ceramic bearings are common place on the pro's bikes, now FSA have made this technology available to the mass market. Ceramic bearings have many benefits, longlivety and low resistance being the most important for this inteneded purpose. Unlike aerodynamics, rotational transmission resistance is felt more at lower speeds, for example when climbing when we all need that 'little extra help'.
Ceramic bearings reduce resistance due to their super smooth running properties, in fact they use 13 times less energy than standard Dura-Ace jockey wheels which already use quality bearings, just imagine what they could do when compared to standard jockey wheels!

Various derailleur systems were designed and built as far back as the late 1800s. A French bicycle tourist, writer and cycling promoter Paul De Vivie (1853-1930), invented a two speed rear derailleur in 1905 which he used on forays into the Alps, and we wonder if 20 gears are enough..... Since then there have been many advancements, in the number of gears, materials and reductions in weight. Wiggle lists a large selection of front and rear derailleurs catering for double and triple systems with 7, 8, 9, 10 and even 11 speed cassettes.
The driving force of bicycle component maker Full Speed Ahead is well captured in their name. FSA stays ahead of the competition through design innovation and manufacturing expertise. FSA's manufacturing base is in Taiwan, but they are truly a global company, with offices in the USA & Italy that collaborate to direct FSA's component development. FSA offers solutions for speed across a broad range of bicycle components; from headsets to wheels; cranksets and bottom brackets, Vision Time Trial & Triathlon bars and handlebars & stems. Why FSA win: Using ceramic, stainless steel, titanium and a half dozen grades of aluminium and numerous composite materials including molded, tubular and high-compression plate carbon fibre gives them the ability to apply the perfect material to each specific application.
