SRAM GXP Bottom Brackets

Kogel's ceramic bottom brackets are designed for use on Giga X Pipe (GXP) MTB cranks, such as SRAM X.5, X.7, X.9, and X.0, GX, X1, X01, XX1, and on SRAM GXP road/cyclocross cranksets including Apex, Rival, Force or Red GXP.

Two Versions of GXP

GXP bottom brackets are either pressed into the bottom bracket shell (PressFit™) or threaded (English or Italian) depending on your frame design.

Bottom Brackets for GXP Cranksets

Your SRAM and TruVativ GXP crankset requires a GXP bottom bracket. If you're running or planning to run GXP, you'll need a GXP bottom brackets, and Kogel Bearings has a GXP BB for nearly every frame.

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.
