What does upgrading to ceramic bearings mean for you?

What does upgrading to ceramic bearings mean for you?

Quite simply they allow you to gain and maintain speed easier.  The facts are simple.  Ceramic balls are rounder than steel balls and do not generate as much heat as steel balls.  A rounder ball will accelerate faster and easier than a less round ball.  You've probably heard a lot about "marginal gains" lately in pro cycling.  This is what they are talking about.  Tweaking the bike for "free speed".  Simply replacing your bearings will allow you to gain and maintain speed easier.

Ceramic bearings are not a "hot trend" or "gimmicky".  They've been used in the cycling world for the past 15 years.  They've earned the right to be called an upgrade and every pro uses them.  Most amateur racers are using them.  The question is, why aren't you using them?
