SKF, the world's leading technology and solutions provider of bearings, seals, related products, systems and services to the Aerospace, Automotive, Electrical and Industrial sectors announces the launch of Enduro, a new range of high-performance bearings for two-wheelers. Enduro is the most advanced, highest performance bearing from SKF yet. The goal was to create a bearing with performance that improved rider safety, simplified maintenance and increased bearing life. The result is Enduro, a range of bearings that epitomize the SKF performance tradition.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Hemant Nighojkar, Automotive Business Unit Head said, “Our intent is to provide high performance bearings to biking enthusiasts, which meet the safety and performance requirements. Tests have confirmed that SKF Enduro bearings are almost twice as resistant to wear and tear than standard bearings. They have suffered the least raceway surface damage. We at SKF India believe that with the launch of Enduro bearings, SKF would reinforce its already established niche for Quality amongst our valued customers”. A commitment to continuous improvement in design, quality and dependability is the trademark of SKF bearings.

Enduro bearings are specially designed for bike enthusiasts who are looking for an exciting biking experience that’s safe! Bearings endure the rigors of high speed, dirt, extreme heat and humidity conditions. These combine to form a reality check on the quality and reliability of machine and its components. Enduro meets these challenges. Be it the high-speed racing requirement or the customized modifications a biker does to his machine, Enduro bearings are the most suited. Critical parts such as bearings are exposed to extreme conditions and need to take on this extra demand of performance and quality. Enduro differs from the rest, by its specially heat treated - high grade steel balls and rings, use of special grease to ensure smooth operation even at high temperature & humidity, resulting in improved performance and reliability.
