Stronglight Ceramic External Bottom Bracket Cups, external/outboard bottom bracket suitable for chainsets with an integrated axle.

Ceramic bearings are more chemically resistant and can be used in wet environments where steel bearings would rust. Higher hardness means that they are much less susceptible to wear and can offer more than triple lifetimes. They also deform less under load meaning they have less contact with the bearing retainer walls and can roll faster.

100% compatible with Shimano or SRAM/Truvativ chainsets.
Fits BSA 68mm Shells
Anodized black aluminium cups.
Ceramic bearings.
Weight: 95g.
