Strengths:    What?

Weaknesses:    The bearings and seals suck. Big POS!!! Don't ride it when its raining. But what does it do in the the shore..rain! I got through about 3 a year.

Bottom Line:   
It sure would be nice if they could figure this crap out, and also make it so we could service the bearings not just this one time stuff.

Date Reviewed: May 18, 2007

Strengths:    None really.

Weaknesses:    Poor bearing life typical of ISIS. Not as stiff as 2 piece cranks (unsurprisingly!)

Bottom Line:   
Crap bearings, began getting a bit rough after around 3 months of use, and got progressively worse, with a distinctive grindy rumbly feel after 6 months. At around about a year was really stiff then the race or something gave way and it started developing lateral movement.

Gash product, seals couldn't stand up to British weather which is rather poor considering the North Shore ain't exactly dry!

Submitted by Gary Baker a Downhiller from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada

Date Reviewed: August 1, 2002

Strengths:    None

Weaknesses:    Poor quality bearings and does not spin freely enough

Bottom Line:   
Only had this Raceface Evolve ISIS BB on the bike for two weekends and the center bearing failed. The BB does not spin freely when new and I think its a poor design. Called the warranty department 10-15 times and they never answered the phone. Installed a Truvativ and is working perfectly while the Raceface BB sits on the shelf. If you buy this product hope you have better luck.

Seeing if anyone's upgraded from Race Face Evolve DH to Atlas. The Evolves are serving me fine so far but I'm curious if anyone's noticed a tangible difference. I know there's a tiny weight savings with atlas over the evolve, mine measured 1009 with bb (no ring). But i'm more concerned about durabil ... Read More »
