CeramicSpeed has released a new version of its oversized pulley wheel system, the Cerakote OSPW X.
The system is claimed to improve the durability of CeramicSpeed’s OSPW system by adding a Cerakote layer.
The release is said to ‘bolster’ CeramicSpeed’s range of off-road products, and the new pulley wheels are compatible with SRAM Eagle AXS and mechanical derailleurs as well as Shimano XT and XTR 12-speed drivetrains.

The Cerakote OSPW X is available now and costs $839 / €749. UK pricing is to be confirmed. Ceramic misconceptions?
