X-Tracker hub bearings

This patented and exclusive design Generation 3 hub bearing consists of a double row angular contact ball bearing arrangement, in which the outboard row is at a higher diameter and contains more balls than the inner row. This unique design increases the bearing’s capacity while improving hub stiffness by 50% over a traditional tapered bearing unit. A stiffer hub bearing provides many benefits including: 
  • Allows the wheel to run truer during cornering and acceleration
  • Reduces deflection of the hub face and wheel, which provides better steering, handling and vehicle dynamic behavior
  • Reduces brake wear due to true running of rotors, which leads to longer brake component life
  • Improves both NVH (noise/vibration/harness) characteristics and bearing performance
