Rotor BB - mmmm ceramic bearings

Rotor and CeramicSpeed joined forces with the goal of creating a bottom bracket unlike anything currently available on the market with a flashy and aesthetically appealing look. The BB1 is incredibly light and is sure not to go unnoticed, and the smooth unobtrusive lines marry perfectly with any type compatible crankset, be it made of carbon or aluminum.

The BB1 is available in 2 versions: (1) the black color with steel bearings offers a light and elegant bottom bracket at a very competitive price while (2) the red colored with ceramic bearings (CeramicSpeed or Enduro) is ideal for those looking to shed every possible gram while at the same time acquiring an incredibly smooth bottom bracket. Both versions are available for road (BSA and ITA) as well as MTB use. The red ceramic version comes in at an incredible 89g for the road model, and 93g for the MTB, while the steels comes in at 92g for road and 101g for MTB; still quite impressive.
