Several of the upper tier Box bottom brackets were engineered using Oversized Technology. There is no use pushing hard on your pedals if you can’t deliver most of that power to the rear wheel. During the creation of this bottom bracket, Box was obsessed with Power delivery (AKA) pedaling stiffness. To reduce lateral deflection Box chose to oversize the bottom bracket and therefore subsequently enlarged the spindle and the crank arm’s interfaces. This made room for larger bearing rings contributing to a vast increase in contact area. They robbed material from unloaded sections to reinforce the zones of high stress. Not only are you going to be more efficient with power delivery, but you’ll also feel the instant response of acceleration. Seen through another lens, less energy will be required to achieve the same elapsed time.
Key differences: The Box Two M35 bottom bracket takes the oversized effort to an extreme with a colossal 35mm diameter cross section courtesy of Praxis™. That dimension might seem massive, but they’ve also employed the use of Enduro’s burly but smooth gliding precision bearings to support that decision. Remember, you’ll need a modern frame to cope with this kind of technology.
