Campagnolo: CULT™, Cermamic Technology
Campagnolo has released a video from its Camp Tech Lab™ explaining the benefits of Ceramic Ultimate Level Technology (CULT™) which greatly reduces friction. CULT™ ceramic technology is available on certain wheelsets and cranksets.
Campagnolo uses a combination of the best ceramic balls on the market and Cronitech® chromium stainless steel races made by the German company Schaeffler.
The testing results from the Campy Tech Lab™:
* 9 times smoother than the standard solutions
* Zero wear on bearings and balls
* friction coefficient: the lowest in the world of cranksets thanks to lubrication with oil instead of grease
* 3.5 watts more power at each pedal stroke, increasing along with the increase in speed
