The EXTREME Release Bearing is the Ultimate in Land Rover Clutch Release Bearings. We’ve taken the application and the concept of a standard plastic carrier with a bearing that is adequate then taken it to a new level.
Our custom designed EXTREME Release Bearing has been engineering from start to finish with Maximium Strength and Reliability in mind.We’ve taken onboard all the issues that the standard type bearing causes and all the flaws it has and addressed each of them thoroughly.
We’ve made no compromises and applied the correct design features to maximise the potential of our product. We’ve selected the right material grade that will take extreme abuse and cope with temperatures beyond what could be produced by even the hardest working vehicle.
Unlike current modified release bearings carriers on the market we’ve not used the standard bearing. In our opinion its too small for modern applications and certainly not suitable for anything that been modified. As a result we’ve discarded it, started a fresh and sourced a bearing that is more than man enough, a bearing that is capable of loads far in excess of the application we will be using it for – this means it’ll never be tested and will always be reliable.
In addition to making our EXTREME Release Bearing Strong and Reliable, we’ve made it long lasting adding a simple feature that allows grease used on the guide tube face. Oil rings keep the grease in place and protected from contamination. This barrier of grease will not only protect the release bearing but also the guide tube itself. It’ll also minimise clutch release bearing rattle, a common problem that gives a loud rattling noise on idle which is cause by a lack of grease and poor design tolerances.
Having looked at every aspect of the clutch release bearing there is only one more issue to resolve and the EXTREME Release Bearing addresses this with absolute uncompromised logic. Historically the Land Rover Release Bearing has been attached to the fork via a very poor and quite pathetic plastic staple. Anyone who’s ever fitted a clutch fork knows that this plastic staple isn’t fit for purpose. They break, bend, melt and fall out. They were a last after thought but managed to be kept in production all the way from the early 70’s when they were introduced. For our EXTREME Release Bearing we’ve designed a new clip from scratch, a clip that wont fall off, will keep the bearing and fork in place and will last. Our clip fits around the fork and is clipped to the bearing on both sides, not just one. You’ll not get any bearing rattle on idle and fitting will be easier. It is the Ultimate solution to finish off the Ultimate Release Bearing.
We’re so confident and sure that the EXTREME Release Bearing is that strong and reliable we offer it with a LIFETIME Warranty, which means you have piece of mind. The warranty covers the carrier and the bearing.
