A Tapered Roller Bearing combines an inner cone with an outer race. This simple design allows the rollers from the cone to meet the outer race at a specific angle to allow for high radial and single direction thrust loads. Tapered roller bearings are used in a number of applications throughout the off-road industry. The simple design of how the cone (inner ring) matches to the cup (outer ring) allows for applying both thrust (side-to-side) and radial (up and down) loads.
- Ideal for supporting axial forces and radial forces.
- Tapered so the conical surfaces can meet at a common point along the main axis of the bearing.
- Shape designed to stop the rollers from popping out due to a “pumpkin seed effect”.
