French ceramic bearing and oversized derailleur pulley maker CyclingCeramic drops the cost of buying those ‘Free Watts’ to make your bike’s drivetrain faster. You get the same carbon cages, machined alloy pulleys & ceramic bearing kits or simply derailleur pulley wheels themselves for 20% less cash outlay, thanks to improved manufacturing efficiencies…

More speed, for less money. Win, win, right?

According to CyclingCeramic, it comes down to overall optimization of how they produce their pulley wheels and cage upgrade kits, as well as improved economies of scale from actually selling more upgrades. That meant they could deliver the same quality for less. And so they are passing on those savings. That’s then more than 20% off discount for their popular Oversize Cage kits and replacement Pulley Wheels.

No compromises on quality or durability, just improved manufacturing efficiency. And their upgrades are still handcrafted in France.

How much do you save?

That then means their standard 11 & 12T machined alloy replacement Pulley Wheels with ceramic bearings now sell from 99€, down from 125€ for the pair. Pick from 11- or 12-speed replacement pulleys for Campagnolo Chorus, Record & Super Record; Shimano 105, Ultegra & Dura-Ace; and SRAM AXS Road. Or choose their slightly more expensive (but still cheaper than before) Narrow (& wide) 14T replacements for on- & off-road. Choose from Shimano GRX, XT & XTR and SRAM Road, XPLR gravel & Eagle MTB. Get ’em all in black, blue, gold, or reed ano for a little derailleur customization.

Also, their Oversize Cage kit consisting of carbon cages with oversized machined alloy pulleys and ceramic bearings now sell for 269€, down from 349€. So, there you can upgrade almost all Campy, Shimano & SRAM road and gravel rear derailleurs. Then, get bigger 14 & 19T pulleys for decreased drag – and in some pretty colors, too.

Free Watts just got a little more affordable.

If I’ve read this correctly, it turns your bike into an ebike? I say to double the size of the pulley wheel for even MORE POWER!!!!

No, electricity added, it increases.
You’re stride One pedal equals several pedals with these gears.
You can make a new self though. Way overpriced There should be more like $70 for the twin gear. Carbon fiber is fabric and a apoxy very cheap.

The single watt you save ,you lose in the increased airdrag.

For sure, but Ceramic Speeds aero pulley got a friend of mine nearly 3w in the wind tunnel which is outside of the margin of error. So they may realistically be 4w total

The best part of aftermarket pulleys is the warranty. 4 years is pretty dope. I can barely get 4 rides out of stock Campy pulleys.

When the industry reaches its technological peak, it has nothing left to develop and improve upon. And so it creates this…
