With many special features, these bearings have great wear characteristics added durability. Mahle uses a proprietary tri-metal blend to provide a stiffer bearing under high load use, which is necessary for race engines. Each bearing is designed with state-of-the-art software for the ideal oil film thickness, which adds reliability and greatly reduces the chance of spinning a bearing.

These bearings feature laser marked identification marks, instead of the more commonly seen stamped marks. This allows for better heat transfer from the bearing and does not disrupt the backing for more even wear.

This set includes 8 half shells with oiling holes. The oiling hole makes for steady oil supply to the wrist pin when used on rifle drilled Integrated Engineering connecting rods.
