Until now, Kogel Bearings only offered this Royal Blue color to their sponsored pro riders. Now, they’ve made a limited run of blue derailleur pulleys for 11-speed road and SRAM 12-speed Eagle mountain bike groups. To go with it, they’re celebrating a collaboration with Aaron Gwin and the YT-Mob this year, offering custom engraved blue bottom brackets for the entire team. For our friends to join in the celebration, we made 50 sets of the blue PF30-386 bottom bracket available for sale.

And, available exclusively through YT Mob’s store, you can get these co-branded versions while they last. Retail for the standard blue BB starts at $199, and the YT-branded ones are going for €225 (and includes a YT Mob t-shirt). The branded one is only available in a PF30 option, running ceramic bearings, same as what the team is riding with their e*Thirteen cranks.

They also just released a new Fire Engine Red option for the road and Eagle pulleys, and the road ones have already sold out (so if you’ve got $10,000, they’ll open production back up for you). But, the Eagle pulleys are still available in all three (red, blue, gold) for $149.99, and they’ve got a few gold and blue road ones still on offer for $139.99 a set.

    I have had a few pulleys. Ceramic, CNC alloy, narrow and wide, POM and a few Red and DA ones. Metal ones are the worst. Noisy and clunky. Go buy some POM pulleys for like 10 dollars.

      Agreed. Went the whole metal matchy matchy route once never again. 6800 level pulleys work perfectly this stuff is always a laugh. Guys spend hundreds on ceramic this and that to save 2-3 watts but they can’t even hold an Interval +-5 watts. Still they’re serving a need and Ard is a super good guy so I guess not such a bad thing.
