The fact that we're one of the leading suppliers of OEM snowmobile bearings is what enabled us to build what no other manufacturer could ... a bearing that's specific to the sport of snowmobiling; Black Ice by NTN.

Formula Black Ice will truly define your snowmobile's entire performance and ride experience, either breaking trails or pushing it to the limits on frozen ice.

Ultimate Race Performance & Durability

Your snowmobile's entire performance depends on its bearings and the energy they use as they rotate... or the energy they save. If your sled has bearings that are worn or inferior in design or quality, your power, speed, and mileage will suffer. Now that's wasted horsepower!

Black Ice snowmobile bearings from NTN are the result of countless hours of research and development in our engineering facilities and in real-world minus-30-degree, 200-mile rides.

We took what we learned and we engineered special features into every Black Ice snowmobile bearing, producing unequalled performance and longevity. From advanced sealing technology to extreme low-temperature grease, NTN Formula Black Ice snowmobile bearings are designed to keep your snowmobile driving past the edge of its limits.
