11 is faster than 10.
For such a small part, Campagnolo spent plenty of time making this better. The updated look and graphics of their Record 11 Ultra-Torque Bottom Bracket cups is only a part of what they've done. It signals a small change in design as well. Through careful study of high- and low-stress areas, the cups have been lightened to the tune of approximately 11% and yet yield the same stiffness and same fatigue life.
Campagnolo Ultra-Torque bottom brackets come without bearings or an axle. You're buying a set of cups, either English- (68mm) or Italian- (70mm) threaded, and a clip that holds the right crank in place. These will work with either 10- or 11-speed Ultra-Torque Campagnolo cranks irrespective of model. They're installed with either Campagnolo's UT-BB120 tool or Park's near-universal BBT-9 bottom bracket tool.
The Campagnolo Record 11 Ultra-Torque Bottom Bracket comes in a Pewter finish. They're installed with 35Nm of torque.
- No bearings included–bearings are pressed onto the crank arms
