The ITL Threaded bottom bracket has been designed to fit frames where the threading is in Italian style such as Pinarello. The cups contain 24mm bearings which will support 24mm cranksets such as Shimano and FSA, but can be used with a 22/24mm crankset such as the SRAM GXP.
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.
NOTE: For 22/24mm SRAM/Truvativ cranks you will need to select the SRAM option on the crank menu.
NOTE: For BMX cranks that use a 19mm spindle, road cranks with a 19mm spindle, and the FSA omega you will need our 19mm bushing kit which is sold separately.
Recommended Tools: Park Tool BBT-9, Park Tool Anti-Seize Compound
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.
