Cervelo BBRight Bottom Brackets

Kogel Bearings offers Cervelo BBRight ceramic bottom brackets based on a design developed by Gerard Vroomen during his years at Cervelo Cycles.

Set up as an open standard, free for any frame maker to use, until today BBRight has only been widely adopted by Cervelo Cycles and has been used as the consistent bottom bracket standard across all their road and time trial frames since 2012.

BBRight Design Benefits

The main benefit for the BBRight design is how it allows frame builders to increase the width of the rear triangle, resulting in a stiffer frame and potentially more tire clearance.

BBRight Design Details

The setup is similar to PressFit30 but asymmetrical, meaning the non-drive side of the bottom bracket is 11mm wider than the drive side.

The drive side is left narrower to make sure the crank set and chain rings to do not interfere with the chain stays.

WHY Upgrade/Replace Your Bottom Bracket

Even new bikes with new high-end drivetrains can, and usually do, ship with bottom brackets using steel bearings.

Even if perfectly maintained, those steel bearings just won't roll as smoothly or efficiently as our ceramic steel bearings.

Kogel Ceramic Bearings are:

  • More symmetrical (i.e. round) and built to stricter tolerances than steel bearings
  • More efficient for power transfer than standard bearings
  • And, won't deform, flat-spot, crack or get pitted

Beyond the basics of keeping your bottom bracket clean and maintained, perhaps the most important step is ensure your bike's best performance is using a bottom bracket manufactured with high-quality ceramic bearings.
