The limited-edition Cerakote versions of Ceramicspeed’s OSPW X system came to life when the Danish brand started a study to find materials that might enhance the already impressive durability of their famed low-friction products. During their research, they trialled Cerakote, a polymer-ceramic composite commonly used in the automotive and aerospace industries. If a material can make the grade in space, then it’s probably pretty resilient, and sure enough, Cerakote’s industry-leading durability, hardness, scratch and corrosion resistance won out in Ceramicspeed’s internal testing against other materials.
Strictly limited to 100 per color, the Cerakote OSPW X system comes in Bronze, Gunmetal, and Military Olive matte. And if you’re wondering if they live up to the hype in person, then let us put your mind at ease - they look awesome. Thanks to our long-term relationship with Ceramicspeed, we got to install and trial every color as part of a special launch collaboration that included a shoot at AC and on some of our favourite trails around Marin. We looped in AC’s professional gravel racer Brennan Wertz and ‘Out of the Saddle’ Salifu Mohammed and shod their bikes with the Gunmetal and Military Olive Cerakote versions before sending them out to put the pulleys through their paces.
