Chris King MTB External Bottom Bracket

Chris King has been making their own stainless-steel sealed bearings for 35 years and never has there been a component that benefited more from their quality and durability than the external bottom bracket. The Chris King bottom bracket is specifically designed for crank systems with outboard bearing cups and is a testament to the craftsmanship and quality of Chris King components.

Featuring Chris King’s legendary steel bearings, the Chris King external bottom bracket is designed to have a smooth and efficient ride that can perform under demanding circumstances. Chris King makes all of their own bearings in-house, using a process that allows them to fit more balls per bearing. This creates a stronger over all bearing system and makes Chris King’s external bottom bracket system one of the finest on the market. In true Chris King fashion, their external bottom brackets are fully serviceable, so you can enjoy Chris King precision for years on end.

  • For 68/73mm bottom bracket shells
  • ”Shimano” version works with Shimano Hollowtech II, FSA Mega Exo, and Race Face X-type cranks
  • ”GXP” version works with GXP, SRAM, Truvativ and Bontrager cranks ONLY
  • Fully serviceable sealed bearings.
  • Bearing seals designed to work with Chris King’s BB Injector Tool allowing you to easily put new grease in your bottom bracket bearings.
  • 5-year warranty.
  • 100% made in the USA

        What an upgrade from stock GXP team BB!!
        After several rides, I can't say enough good things about the way it operates. I use it on a single-speed mtb and can really feel the difference. Worth the money if serviceability is as good as they say.

          Comments about Chris King MTB External Bottom Bracket:

          Bought this to replace a sram GXP BB. Thought it would be simple as just swaping the two, i had to read the installation instructions to figure out what was all the parts that came with the BB. You have to find the right number of spacers depending on many factors. Instructions are very clear, but when i saw it was a GXP i thought it would be simpler. Rolls like heaven.
