GGB maintenance-free bearings provide durable, environmentally friendly, grease-free operation able to withstand high loads, speeds and temperatures. Our high performance self-lubricating plain bearings offer exceptional performance in wet, dirty environments, making them ideal for use in a wide variety of recreational equipment applications.
From all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), bicycles, snowmobiles and mountain bike suspensions, to fishing equipment, ski bindings, recreational water craft, golf carts and many more, GGB has the experience and proven expertise in advanced materials to provide each customer with the ideal bearing solution for tomorrows’ new challenges.
Reaching exhilarating speeds, catamarans are the sports cars of the sailing world, and the most popular is the Hobie Cat 16. Hobie dealer Sport Mohr retrofits the boats for use in regattas, choosing GGB’s EP® injection-molded, engineered plastics bearings to reduce play and abrasion in the bolted joints of the boats’ dual tiller/rudder systems. GGB bearings provide superior wear resistance and low friction with excellent dimensional stability, high compressive strength and low thermal expansion.
TiTec Golf, has produced the first electric golf caddy made entirely of titanium using DP4® maintenance-free plain bearings in the drive wheels.
Requiring no additional fixation measures the bearings will not migrate out of their housings, also offering a generous amount of play, making them easy to install and assuring the wheels turn quietly.
GGB offers a range of maintenance-free, lightweight and safe bike bearings for motorcycles. Our EP® and DP4® motorcycle bearings can be mounted and used for many different motorcycle components parts, including chassis components, shock absorbers and struts, starter systems and steering mechanisms
GGB’s high-performance, self-lubricating bearings offer customers great advantages in many applications thanks to a longer bearing life, high wear resistance and low friction over a wide range of load, speed, and temperature conditions in addition to reducing costs and a lower environmental impact:
Improved performance and service life
Lower system cost
Our customers benefit from the many advantages of the low friction properties found in our engineered plastics bushings and metal-polymer plain bearings. GGB provides bearing solutions to a multitude of recreational applications including cableways, motorcycles, quads, ski lifts, anti-theft systems and many more:
GGB bearing experts are available to provide solutions to meet each application’s specific needs with a vast range of standard or custom bearings. GGB bearings offer good wear and friction performance over a wide range of load, speed and temperature conditions and the self-lubricating material is resistant to wear, chemicals, cavitation, flow erosion and fatigue.
