Shimano Bottom Brackets
Love your Shimano drivetrain and want to take it to the next level or restore to better-than-new condition? Kogel's complete lineup of Shimano bottom brackets provide ceramic performance without breaking the bank.
Check us out. We're sure you'll find the perfect fit for your favorite Shimano crankset.
Shimano Road Bottom Brackets
Kogel's lineup includes bottom brackets for just about every road crankset Shimano produces including Shimano 105, Ultegra, Dura Ace, and the latest GRX groupsets.
Choose road bearings for road bikes or cross bearings for gravel & cyclocross especially if you frequent riding in wet or muddy conditions.
Shimano MTB Bottom Brackets
Like our road collection, Kogel Bearings offers bottom brackets for every Shimano mountain bike drivetrain including current and previous generations of SLX, XT, XTR and Saint groupsets.
Be sure to choose cross bearings for your mountain bike to better protect from muck, mud and dust.
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.
