Coated BSA30 Bottom Bracket

BSA30 Bottom Bracket MTB

BSA comes from Birmingham Small Arms, aka English threading. English threading on mountain bikes means a 73mm wide, 34mm inside diameter shell with reverse threading on the drive side. It's the most common threaded standard employed today. This kit allows you to fit 30mm thru-axle cranks, like those from Rotor or RaceFace, to fit in the tight space of this 30mm spindle. 

CeramicSpeed Coated Bearings are hand built with unique CeramicSpeed Ceramic Balls installed on coated, hardened-steel races for longer life and less bearing drag compared to standard bearings.

TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS

English threading is easy to work with and the drive side cup, thanks to being reverse-threaded, stays in place without any extra effort. The threaded extension is thin, as they need to fit a 30mm spindle inside the cups.

The spindle increases efficiency, as is the CeramicSpeed system.
CeramicSpeed standard bearings typically have frictional drag of 0.3-0.4 watts per set. That’s in the range of a 75% drag reduction compared to standard bottom brackets. That’s thanks to balls that are 100% smoother and 15% harder than the ceramic competition. The bearings last at least 3x longer than other bearings.

Race Day Grease, All Round, and Long Life are three greases CS designed to help the bearings roll smoothly. The first is the least drag, the last is the most durable. All Round comes with. You can change the grease to tune performance.
