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.
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 (except for our OSPW Aero Systems) is secured by a black twist tie on the packaging foam. This is often missing on fake products.
