Race FaceX-Type Bottom Bracket

Light, strong, smooth.

Race Face trimmed all excessive weight from the X-Type Bottom Bracket and then doubled the bearing count to provide a smooth feel on every pedal stroke. Internal tapered sidewalls and light 7050 aluminum reduce the gram count, and Race Face used fully sealed bearings for extra long life. You can also use this bottom bracket with Shimano and FSA crank sets.

Just keep spinning!

    A quick fix, some preventative maintenance goes a long way, a worthy endeavor to swap the bb out yearly. This one is pretty great, and spins smooth.

    Spins so fast

      Great BB and easy to install

      Great replacement bb! however it said not to use a 2.5mm spacer for a 73 mm shell but I ended up having to use one.

      Unanswered Question

      Is it possible for me to use my PF30 SRAM RED 22 crankset on this Bottom Bracket? Will this Bottom Bracket work on a road bike with BSA?

      Great Bottom Bracket

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I put this on my road bike to replace my original. It's definitely a lot smoother than my worn out BB.

        This is smooth as butter. Race face makes some of the best components I've ever ridden with. My set up has the x-type fitted with evolve XC cranks, and the combo is phenomenal. Light, smooth and durable, if you are looking for a good xc or light all mountain BB, this is it.
