PressFit 30 bottom brackets (aka PF30) started appearing on major bike manufacture's frames back in 2009 as a “less stringent”, more cost-effective and high-performing alternative to BB30 bottom brackets.
Kogel offers PF30 ceramic bottom brackets to fit both 30mm and 24mm crank spindles so you’re sure to find a bottom bracket that mates your frame with your crankset. PressFit 30 bottom brackets have a frame shell width of 68mm for road bikes and 73mm for mountain bikes. Inner diameter is 46mm.
The main difference between the two standards being the intermediary “cups” that sit between the frame and the bottom bracket bearings. Instead of the BB30 bearing sitting directly into the frame, a composite cup cradled the bearings between the frame and crankset.
PF30 bottom brackets were used widely across Specialized’s high-end mountain bike frames and smaller-scale manufacturers. At the time this gave manufacturers all the benefits of BB30 bottom brackets without the added design and manufacturing challenges.
- Road and off-road specific seal options to keep your road, triathlon, TT, cross and mountain bikes running smoothly
