motion plastics for the
bicycle industry

Maintenance-free, robust, light – components made of high-performance polymers

Bike riding is environment-friendly, healthy and trendy. The range of different types of bicycle on offer is now very wide: from cargo bikes, which no longer transport goods but take the children to nursery school, to racing bikes for sport or in the city and mountain bikes for the adrenaline kick in leisure time. Robust iglidur plain bearings from igus are a good choice for all applications. They withstand extreme loads, shocks and impacts, reduce the bike's weight and, thanks to the absence of lubrication, are easy to look after and only have to be maintained very rarely. The high wear resistance makes them reliable components, not only on racing bikes but also on much-used everyday bicycles.

Advantages of igus polymer plain bearings:

  • Weight reducing
  • Lubrication and maintenance-free
  • Resistant to dirt
  • Corrosion-free
  • Resistant to impacts and shocks
  • Wear-resistant
  • High, predictable service life
  • Cost-effective

Top products for bikes

Wear-resistant bushings in pedals and shock absorber eyes, low-stick-slip guide rings in seat posts and suspension forks, robust rod ends and lightweight linear guides in cargo bikes: our lubrication-free dry-tech bearing technology has proven itself in many bicycle applications.

Our Industry Manager Alexander Welcker will explain what these are in detail and introduce the igus:bike project at our trade show stand at Eurobike 2022. 

You can find more information at www.igus.bike and on our websites dealing with mountain bikes and cargo bikes.

chike cargo bike with iglidur plain bearings and igubal rod end bearings

igus bearings make agile e-cargo bike low-maintenance

The company chike needed suitable components for a new type of spring-loaded tiltable chassis that would make their e-cargo bike just as manoeuvrable in bends as an ordinary bicycle. The igubal rod end bearings are now used on the tie rods, iglidur plain bearings on the wishbone and in the tilt lock. In contrast to metallic bearings, they ensure practically maintenance-free, durable operation, are lightweight and cost-effective.
Crankbrothers bicycle pedals with iglidur plain bearings

Constant performance on the trail, resistant to shocks, mud and dust

For their pedal bearings the company Crank Brothers was looking for a solution. Resistance to dirt, a reduction in weight and a long service life were the main aspects. With our plain bearings made of the iglidur JB material, the company was able to achieve an eight times longer service life and reduce the weight. The new bearings are insensitive to dirt and can be easily cleaned without any loss of performance.

Tested in the igus test laboratory for use in the real world

Tested for continuous load, media resistance and quiet operation
In the industry's largest test laboratory for plastics, iglidur plain bearings are tested thoroughly and extensively. Focus of the tests are push/pull forces, coefficient of friction, wear as well as abrasion and driving forces at various speeds and bearing loads. The results are entered into our tools to calculate service life and allow for precise predictions regarding their durability.
Upon request, igus carries out customer tests to check product use under completely tailored conditions.

Do polymer plain bearings on bicycles have to be lubricated? What advantages do they have over their counterparts made of metal? In the igus blog, you can find interesting articles on everything to do with bicycle technology and equipment.
