Superstar Ceramic HTII bottom bracket

BikeRadar verdict

65.0 out of 5 stars

"Very cheap but only cheerful for a few weeks. You pays yer money …"

Superstar specialise in cutting out the middlemen in order to keep prices to a minimum. This Shimano/RaceFace-compatible ceramic bearing bottom bracket (Truvativ version also available) is a prime example. 

The ABEC 5 hybrid ceramic bearings feel smooth to start with and the BB comes in a choice of four anodised colours. 

Despite claims of longer life for ceramic bearings it started to creak after a few weeks of summer use. A couple of months on it still hasn’t completely died but we’d expect better of a ceramic setup, even at this price.
