Angular contact ball bearings (two rows) are comparable to two single row angular contact bearings arranged back-to-back but with a smaller size; these bearings have different contact angles and therefore bear axial loads in both directions proportional to the contact angle and of the same value for those without filling groove. Bearings with this groove on one side must respect a mounting direction that directs the main axial load onto the race without groove.
