Q: What is the performance difference between the following three type of bearings: Ceramic Metal Shield, Ceramic Yellow Seal and Ceramic Ultra Seal?

Ceramic Metal Shield bearings are metal shielded and offer the least resistance of the three. These bearings need frequent cleaning but will give you the best performance. Not recommended for dirty or wet environments, Ceramic Yellow Seal are rubber sealed bearings and offer the best protection against dirty and wet conditions. The bearings are maintenance free and are recommended for extreme conditions. Because they are contact rubber seals there is a certain amount of friction, which will lessen the more they are used and Ceramic Ultra Seal have a PTFE seal that sits under a metal shield and are maintenance free and offer lower friction than the rubber seals. They require a small amount of break in time and are recommended for on-road or indoor use only. They should not be run on water or muddy conditions as the seals are not as waterproof as the rubber seals.
