We've always appreciated the fact that FSA always offers ceramic bearings as standard equipment. Ceramics offer a measurable reduction in friction. Like improving your aerodynamics, having ceramics makes you faster, but they get you there with a lot more money left in your pocket. With this BB386 EVO/PF30 Ceramic Bottom Bracket, FSA makes the jump to oversize PressFit bottom brackets. It will fit bike frames using either the BB386 EVO or the PressFit30 standard. The defining common feature is the 46mm inside diameter of the bottom bracket shell. This is the bearing set that you'll need for installation of your BB386 EVO or BB30 crankset. Be aware that it is not limited to FSA branded cranks.
The ceramic hybrid, sealed cartridge bearings run smoother and faster than typical steel bearings. The reason is that the ceramic balls are made to much higher tolerances and are more spherical. FSA also loads these bearings with their special ceramic bearing grease formulation -- Ceramic Revolution. It's a lightweight, mineral oil based grease that provides the lubrication that the hybrid bearings need without causing undue drag, since this bottom bracket is all about speed.
To install this FSA BB386 EVO/PF30 Ceramic Bottom Bracket assembly, you'll want a standard BB30 tool to press the composite cups into the frame and to ensure correct installation. The sealed cartridge bearings will ensure smooth operation for many miles. The unit comes complete and ready to install. It's compatible with PF30 and BB386 EVO bike frames.
