The BB30 Pressfit is designed to fit PF30 frames and it has been redesigned without the sleeve attached to one cup; reducing the weight by 18g. Installed are Folmer TechnologyTM bearings that support 30mm crank sets such as SRAM, RaceFace, and FSA.
There are 3 different bearing choices to best meet your needs:
- Standard Bearings: Use for road bikes in dry/no salt environments.
- Full Stainless Steel Bearings: Use for extreme distance riding (>200miles/week), BMX, MTN, Cycle cross, and other varying conditions.
- Full Stainless Steel Bearings with CX Seals: The CX seal is for riding conditions where water, dust, and debris can get into the bearing and degrade it prematurely. Use for MTN, BMX, Cycle Cross, or other wet and dirty conditions. NOTE: This is not for timed road biking as the extra seal slightly increases wattage.
The BB30PF has an optional middle tube (Di2) to be used with electronic shifters, such as the Shimano Di2, ensuring the cables do not rub on the crank spindle. The middle tube is available in 41mm (road) and 46mm (mtn) and is sold separately.
Hawk RacingTM bottom brackets have been designed with the pro cyclist in mind. Replace your standard bottom bracket with a new generation bottom bracket that is 10% lighter than ceramic and takes up to 80% less energy than the next most efficient bottom bracket on the market.
Our bottom brackets use exclusively Folmer TechnologyTM bearings (patent pending) which have changed the perception of ceramic bearings by being ultra light weight, durable, and affordable. Our bearings help you make each performance your best and will last without needing frequent service intervals.
These specially designed bearings utilize a high-grade lubrication which is typically used in a slightly different form in the aerospace industry as well as a lighter seal than ceramic bearings. These features help get you to terminal velocity more quickly and easily.
Hawk Racing bearings have been used by Kendra Pro Cycling and Wonderful Pistachio Pro Cycling Teams here in the USA.
The BB30 Pressfit has been redesigned without the sleeve attached to one cup, therefore reducing the weight by 18g. However, if you ride the Shimano Di2 or similar group set, then you will need our clear sleeve (sold separately – 41mm for road, 46mm for MTB) to keep the cables away from the crank spindle.
