When your cycling, no matter the category, friction is your biggest enemy. Anything you do to reduce friction on your bike is going to give you an edge on the competition. Which is why you should equip your bike with a Stainless Steal Hawk Racing Bottom Bracket today!
There was an independent study conducted by a company called friction facts that compared the friction loss of different bottom brackets across the market.
When it came to stainless steal BBs Hawk Racing came out on top with a friction loss of 0.32 watts. Hawk’s stainless steal bearing were beat out by 3 other companies with Ceramic BBs.
And the best part?
There was only a .03 difference in watts lost between the best ceramic bearing and a Hawk Racing Stainless Steal Bearing.
