We get so tired of all the hair and other things that get wrapped around the area between our casters and our forks. They are hard to clean and maintain. FrogLegs came up with a great solution to all your caster woes:
Frog Shields are precision machined and anodized, 6061-T6 aircraft aluminum, replacements for traditional caster wheel spacers. Frog Shields fit over the wheel bearings to protect them from damage due to debris, water, hair and anything else NASTY. Over time buildup of grit, hair and gunk will chew up and crush your bearings resulting in reduced rolling efficiency. Frog Shields are designed exclusively for Frog Legs brand aluminum caster wheels in sizes from 3″ to 6″. They will also retro-fit to Frog Legs existing wheels made in prior years. You will love how easy it is to keep your wheels clean. No wiping, no tweezing, no NASTY.
Ceramic Hybrid Bearings
Want a longer lasting, high performance bearing? Tired of bearings that rust and seize up? Ceramic bearings don’t corrode, require almost no lubrication, reduced wear, are lighter, have minimal friction and are able to reach very high rotational speeds. This means a faster, smoother ride and typically last 4 to 8 times longer than a steel bearing with the ability to run at 40-60% higher speeds. Ceramic bearings are often used in high performance sports and high end bikes. We say use them in the high performance sport called life.
