Design advantages:

The greatest advantage of ceramic bearings is lower rolling resistance. Because ceramic bearings are rounder, smoother and more uniform in size than traditional ones. At the same time, ceramic bearings are also harder than steel bearings (up to 30%), which improves durability, and they also don't rust for less maintenance. R12 road disc brake hubs are designed with 6-pawl freehub system. 72 POE_Point of Engagement. 36teeth, to make the force more direct and minimize power loss, improved durability and quicker response.
