The eagerly anticipated road specific external bottom bracket is now available. The machined aluminium cups hold full stainless steel cartridge bearings.
These custom, Swiss made bearings are double sealed, fully serviceable and removable which gives a much greater life span than stock units. The bearings are made (as all Hope bearings are) by INA and have been designed to run directly on the crankset axle, without the use of shims or spacers - again increasing life and reliability.
Hope use a non contact, free running labyrinth seal to protect the bearing externally, and the machined aluminium centre tube is sealed internally with o-rings.
Available with replaceable stainless bearings for less friction and greater durability
Designed to suit cranks with 24mm axles
Truvativ conversion kit available separately
Free running labyryinth seal protects bearings and has less drag
Available in our 6 standard colours
Precision machined shells with fine tolerance guarantee a perfect bearing fit
