Cane Creek Hellbender 70 Bottom Bracket
The Hellbender 70 Bottom Bracket uses the same platform and ethos as the original Hellbender Bottom Bracket to create a BB with excellent durability, corrosion resistance, and exceptional ride quality. Where the Hellbender 70 differs is that it utilises a bearing made of 440C stainless steel rather than the SKF MTRX bearings found in the original Hellbender bottom bracket. This keeps the cost down while still offering excellent resistance to contamination and corrosion. The Hellbender 70 Bottom Bracket will be an impactful and lasting upgrade to any bike.
The Hellbender 70 BB is available for 30mm and DUB (28.99mm) spindle cranksets only and is available in variants to fit most bottom bracket standards. The press-fit varieties (BB30, PF30) use a thread-together system where one cup is pressed in and the other one threads into it to lock things down and ensure perfect alignment without any annoying creaks. The BB92 style press-fit does not have room for any cups due to the lack of space created by the 30mm bearings, so these use a lipped bearing that presses into the BB shell directly.
Style: Available in BSA 68/73 threaded, PF30, BB30, and BB92 (PF41) variants.
Spindle size (diameter): 30mm or DUB (28.99mm) only.
Note: DUB cranks require the fitment of a 4.5mm drive side spacer but Cane Creek do not include this with their DUB BB's so it needs to be sourced separately.
Bearing style: 440C stainless steel bearings
Bearing cup / shell material: 6061 T6 machined aluminium cups with black anodised finish. (BB92/PF41 variant does not come with cups).
Installation tools: Installation tools: BSA Threaded and PF30/BB30 Threadfit models require a 12 notch, 46mm OD BB tool (same as Raceface Cinch/SRAM DUB).
What's in the box:
- BSA/PF30/BB30: Bearings, BB cups, spacers
- BB92/PF41: Lipped bearings (no cups), spacers
Takeaway: Stainless steel bearings provide greater resistance to corrosion and fouling than many standard BB bearings. The Threadfit system on the BB30/PF30 models ensures perfect alignment and will banish creaks.
