High stiffness

Stiffness of structures is important in racing, as it allows optimizing weight and strength of structures, without compromising functions under severe loads.

In several applications, the majority of the engineering effort has been directed to obtain superior stiffness characteristic, especially in suspension design. In this area, stiffness allow a better tuning of vehicle dynamic characteristic, resulting in superior set up sensitivity. Bearing design and materials can be combined to obtain significant improvements. SKF engineering knowledge allows increasing smart integration of component characteristic into system design.
