Token BB86R386 Press Fit Bottom Bracket

The precision design of the Token BB86R386 press-fit bottom bracket is crafted to seamlessly fit 86mm width and 30mm diameter axles. This innovative press-fit design incorporates four bearings (two on each side), providing unparalleled durability and smooth performance. The extra bearing set ensures superior weight distribution, enhancing overall stability.

Meticulously machined cups and bearings guarantee a perfect fit to your frame, promoting smooth, low-drag bearing operation. High-quality seals safeguard the bearings from water and debris, extending their lifespan for a sustained optimal performance.

Performance

You can feel the difference after installing the Token BB86R386 as the effortlessly smooth crank spins on the bike. Despite its compact size, the BB86R386’s large spindle, coupled with additional bearings, imparts a remarkable smoothness, almost adding stiffness to the bottom bracket. The slightly heavier feel of the bearings and cups contributes to a robust, solid sensation, elevating your cycling experience.

For enthusiasts seeking peak performance, consider the premium upgrade with stainless steel SPB (Sapporo Precision Bearing) bearings. The SoCalCycling.com Team riders have reported an even smoother ride with this top-tier bearing option.
