CeramicSpeed has launched a new Oversized Pulley Wheel System designed specifically for SRAM’s Eagle Transmission drivetrains.

According to CeramicSpeed, the OSPW X for SRAM Eagle Transmission offers improvements in both efficiency and durability.

The design is based on CeramicSpeed’s new ‘Further Drive’ technology. This comprises of the ‘Active Debris Remover’ and ‘Alpha Disc’ two-piece construction.

CeramicSpeed’s OSPW systems are relatively common on pro-level WorldTour road bikes, but less so on high-end mountain bikes. Oversized pulley wheel systems are typically accompanied by claims of reduced drivetrain friction and, as a result, improved efficiency.

Here, however, CeramicSpeed has taken an oversized system and focused on “the robustness that the Eagle Transmission group is celebrated for”. CeramicSpeed OSPW X for SRAM Eagle Transmission The ‘Active Debris Remover’ encloses the bearing, according to CeramicSpeed, with a “new dust cover design that sits safely anchored in a groove in the pulley wheel. This is paired with a bladed groove structure that surrounds the dust cover, which dynamically extracts debris from the pulley wheel when it’s rotating”.

CeramicSpeed says a prototype version was tested at this year’s Cape Epic XC marathon race.

‘Alpha Disc’, meanwhile, is a 20-tooth solid disc pulley wheel. It’s a two-piece construction, combining the narrow-wide tooth profile – apparently made from a “composite material that offers prolonged wear protection and noise reduction” – with a solid aluminium disc.
