Here at Magic HQ we’ve been doing a lot of R&D, and we’re excited to start bringing what we’ve learned to our production bearings. First under the knife was our original Racing Bearing design. The low mass cage used in our Racing Bearings is thin, so we’re ditching the old nylon blend for a new and stronger material. This material, cut and polished from unicorn bones,** is stronger under impact, tougher under torsion, and more resistant to wear than our original cages.
We’re also stoked to be introducing a new complex grease as an optional upgrade from our original racing oil. Motion Potion is a true synthetic lubricant, an inert non-hydrocarbon mixture designed to deliver the world class performance in the worst conditions for extended periods. Mixed into a Teflon base, its oil and nanoparticle additives work with the surface of the bearing steel to reduce friction, provide extreme load protection, and prevent corrosion. It has been tested in Hawaiian rain and the dust of the American west and proved it’s capability. It’s formula continues to perform well below zero, and this combined with its anti-corrosion additives make it an ideal winter lubricant. Similar formulas are used in mining and automobile applications that see constant use in dirty environments and are expected to provide a long service life without maintenance. We are very pleased to have found a lubricant that addresses the weaknesses of the original racing oil so well while maintaining it’s best performance characteristics.
