Features and Benefits
What seals should I choose?
We recommend and encourage the use of Cross Seals at all times, however...
Road and Cross seals perform very similar after the initial seal wear in period, what changes is the potential for contamination.
If you ride all conditions (Wet Weather, Gravel, MTB etc), wet and dry.... Cross seals are a no brainer as they keep the dirt out and seal tougher.
If you are a fair weather rider, Road, TT or Track rider... we would suggest trying some Road seals. They have a lower seal resistance (less watts lost) but are more prone to contamination if you get your bike wet or dirty.
