Counterfeit awareness

At CeramicSpeed we are proud of what we do and put great honor into developing and building top-shelf quality products. As with many other brands, we sometimes experience counterfeit products and the negative consequences this has for customers tricked into buying a product that is not what they thought it was. 

If you believe you have purchased a counterfeit product, please reach out to us here or reach out to your local CeramicSpeed retailer for their support. 

Ways to spot a fake CeramicSpeed product

There are different ways to spot a counterfeit product. Please also reference the images below. 

  • If it's too good to be true, it probably is. We sometimes come across online shops selling fake CeramicSpeed products at a significantly lower price than the standard retail price, and that's usually one of the first signs that something's not what it appears to be. 
  • Fake products are often missing the CeramicSpeed sticker sheet and oil or grease in the box
  • Visible differences such as tooth profile and "Upper" and "Lower" designation on the pulley wheels often reveals fake products
  • A CeramicSpeed OSPW System is secured by a black twist tie on the packaging foam. This is often missing on fake products. 
  • All CeramicSpeed products have "CeramicSpeed" and a bearing number engraved on the actual bearing.
