Racing performances and Energy efficiency are all about a main engineering challenge: reducing power losses in rotating machinery. Racing environment and applications requires low friction solutions to achieve 2 extremely important targets
- Energy efficiency: with less power losses in all rotating applications, more power is available to the wheel, therefore increasing vehicle performances
- Lower operating temperature: lower power losses means also less heat generated in mechanical assemblies, therefore reducing the need for lubrication and radiators, achieving in turn less friction and lighter vehicle systems.
The correct choice of a bearing solution, from the overall design feature, to the tribological characteristic, allows racing designer to fully exploit the SKF knowledge.
