Partnering with the Mechanical Engineering Department at the University
of Colorado, Ceramicspeed has
created a drive shaft concept that utilises 21 CeramicSpeed Bearings and
sets a new benchmark as the world’s most efficient drivetrain.
Driven sets a new benchmark in drivetrain technology, increasing optimal
efficiency to 99% and creating 49% less friction than market leaders.
Unlike traditional drivetrain systems, Driven eliminates friction caused
by the articulation of a chain due to it’s innovative pinion drive shaft
To achieve ultimate efficiency, Driven utilises 21 CeramicSpeed hybrid bearings. Each bearing
contains unique ceramic balls that are 58% lighter and 2.3 times harder
than traditional steel, increasing the speed of the bearing by 30-50%.
Each bearing works in harmony to deliver greater power, playing a
pivotal role in performance and speed.
A traditional chain and derailleur drivetrain contains eight points of
sliding friction, which is generated from the articulation of the chain
at these points. Driven impressively eliminates all eight points of
