SRAM created the Press Fit 30 bottom bracket standard as a response to some of the nagging BB30 design problems. Where a BB30 bottom bracket uses a direct fit bearing and circlip design, PF30 houses the bearings in plastic cups which press into a wider 46 mm bottom bracket shell. This updated design allows for simpler installation and noise-free operation without changing crankset designs.
HSC's PF30 bottom bracket represents an affordable, high quality aftermarket option for PF30 framesets. These bottom brackets are CNC machined from high strength delrin plastic and equipped with HSC's hybrid ceramic bearings.
Shell and Crankset Compatibility
PF30 bottom brackets are compatible with PF30, BB386 EVO, and BBright framesets. Cranksets labeled BB30 are compatible with PF30 bottom bracket shells; BB386 EVO and BBRight cranksets are specific to their respective bottom bracket shells. HSC manufactures adapter bottom brackets for these three shell types to allow fitment of additional cranksets. Feel free to contact us directly for technical questions.
We recommend that PF30 bottom brackets be professionally installed. In the absence of a specific PF30 installation tool, a standard headset press may be used.
