iglidur G plain bearings from igus were selected by the developers of the Azub Ti-Fly, a new recumbent bike to ensure a safe, long-lasting and lightweight front suspension. Also known as trikes, recumbents assure maximum safety, even at low speeds.

For the front suspension of their new trike model, Azub Ti-Fly, Czech company Azub Bike was looking for wear-resistant plain bearings that could withstand dirt, dust and water. They chose iglidur G bearings from igus for their small size as well as lightweight, lubrication-free and maintenance-free properties. The iglidur bearings are available from Treotham Automation.

Thanks to their low entry position and anti-tilt feature, trikes are a popular mode of transport today with their users ranging from people with physical limitations to seniors and young adventurers. Trikes offer more advantages compared to a normal bike. For instance, riding while seated is more physically relaxing and safe even at slow speeds, and additional accessories support easy operation.

Azub Bike’s new trike, Ti-Fly delivers high-quality workmanship, stable steering and a new eye-catching design of the rear fork with a 157mm wide hub. The lightweight front suspension made of titanium ensures high stability even on uneven ground and during vibrations. For the suspension, the designers opted for the lubrication-free plain bearings from igus.

Aleš Zemánek, Managing Director of Azub Bike, said that the iglidur G plain bearings used in the application were exactly the right solution. Thanks to the incorporated solid lubricants, the all-round bearings are lubrication-free and thus maintenance-free. Dust and dirt cannot harm the cost-effective bearings. Being corrosion-free, the iglidur materials help the trikes withstand wind and weather. Their high wear resistance ensures a long service life, which can also be determined in advance online with the service life calculator.
