Kogel & R Squared Industries new pulley profile designs available across our ceramic bearing range

Innovation and design have led Kogel Bearings to reimagine its ceramic bearing derailleur pulleys. The next generation of ceramic derailleur pulleys, ‘Gen-2’ from Kogel have been available since the summer but now take over the range of road specific pulley sets.

Our Oversized ceramic derailleur pulley design maximizes pulley size improving pedalling performance for any derailleur., without having to fit a new derailleur cage. Our stiffer slimline design also minimizes drag improving chain-line efficiency and lowers drivetrain noise.  These smoother running pulleys provide enhanced shifting efficiency with the reliability of Kogel’s excellent ceramic bearing performance.  All this is designed to #savewatts and help you ride faster.

Bigger IS Better

Looking to upgrade or replace worn-out pulleys? Now there’s even more to love about Kogel’s oversized ceramic derailleur pulleys. The new line improves performance with three major updates:

  • Increased stiffness using A-Shaped pillars between the bearings and teeth
  • Maximized tooth count for every derailleur helps deliver optimal drivetrain performance
  • Enhanced visual design achieves a more cohesive design across the different models

Our oversized ceramic derailleur pulleys run on the same trusted ceramic bearings that we use in our bottom brackets. Using aluminium instead of plastics for the Pulley / Jockey wheels makes them durable. For Road and  Off Road use.

Heard about our “Not For Instagram” ceramic derailleur pulleys? Also known as Kogels Full Ceramic Pulley.  These pulleys use full ceramic bearings and almost seem to free spin forever…well  pretty much to the end of the 60 sec allowed in our Instagram feed. Why, because these bearings contain no metal parts and run without grease.  These are the pinnacle of the Kogel pulley line and designed to give you the most watts saved in your drivetrain.
