SKF offers a complete line of hub bearings, highlighted by its X-tracker hybrid hub bearing and its offering of hub bearing kits. SKF’s X-Tracker Hybrid hub bearing unit evolved from its original X-Tracker hub bearing unit design. The SKF X-Tracker hub bearing unit consists of a unique double row angular contact ball bearing arrangement (with the outboard row at a higher diameter and containing more balls than the inner row), which the company says increases the bearing’s capacity while improving hub stiffness by 50 percent over a traditional tapered bearing unit. In addition, SKF says this provides precision handling and braking characteristics, ultimately delivering improved handling and comfort.
