Manufactured from high strength aluminium and featuring twice the number of ball bearings than our competitors, the BB cups are also compatible with Shimano's external system, making for a great upgrade.
• Forged and CNC Machined from 7050 aluminium.
• Features 35% more thread engagement and substantially thicker walls than the Atlas cups for greater durability in big-hit situations.
• Massive external bearings have 35% larger ball bearings than internal systems, yielding vastly improved durability.
• Double sealed cartridge bearings feature a special full-complement construction. This doubles the amount of ball bearings in the cartridge and effectively doubles the load carrying capacity of the bearing.
• Weight - 115g
  • Colour: Grey
  • Size: 68/73mm
Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good performance and great reliability I had one of these on my old cranks and they lasted about 1.5 years, so reliability isn't an issue. They don't spin as freely as I would have liked but they're bearable. 18 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent! Super light!super design.When my BB was broken ,I very long thought and chose what to buy me, and stopped on Race Face choice, after installation I was surprised to grace and quality of work, later I ordered Race Face Cranks, in a set too there were BB X-Type, and together all system worked simply fantastically! 03 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Nice and smooth running good bit of kit that I have had for a few months and have had no problems and I can't see there will be any in the future. all in all a nice functional piece of equipment 22 January 2014

Answer: 
These RaceFace X-Type/ EXI brackets run the same 24mm axle standard as the Shimano Hollowtech II. The two systems are effectively identical.

I bought my previous BB from Chain Reaction - Raceface x-type Race XC.
I have three questions:
1. As you don't stock my previous one any more, will the Team XC also fit?
2. What is the difference between Race and Team models, and also DH and XC models?
3. This is described as BB Cups - so I am wondering if that is technical for "it's not the complete thing". Does it represent a full BB or do I need to add something else - bearings?

Thanks

Answers

Answer: 
The Team XC will run with your crankset without any foreseeable issues. The compatibility of X-Type bottom brackets is fairly universal with a few benefits to some models.

The XC models (approx 95g) are the standard high quality variant, with a tight wiper seam and decent waterproof grease to keep any unwanted dirt and grime out.

The DH variant is slightly heavier (approx 115g) due to it having double the amount of bearings than the XC counterpart.

The Bottom Bracket cups listed includes the full bottom bracket assembly including bearings, seals, grease and bottom bracket cups.

Answer: 
This bottom bracket is intended for use with a RaceFace X-Type engagement crankset.

This Shimano crankset requires a Hollowtech II bottom bracket for the best performance. The suggested option below will be the best BB to select for this crankset.
