Our Reversible Grip BB Cup Tool takes the place of three outboard BB cup tools by combining the best qualities of each while eliminating their respective shortcomings.  This one tool does the job of a flush-tooth BB cup socket tool, a recessed-tooth cup socket tool, and a stamped steel BB wrench. 
 
Because our BB tool is reversible, the drive splines that engage the cup notches can be used in their optimum position (flush or recessed) by simply flipping the tool over.  An offset "crows foot" socket drive allows for the proper use of a torque wrench and a ratchet drive tool.  Unlike deep socket tools, the drive is in line with the cup, allowing full torque to be applied without the tool shifting or slipping. 
 
The open design of the RWC BB Cup Tool allows the mechanic to visually verify proper engagement of the tool to prevent damage to the bearing cup.  This feature also allows for the protruding spindles of BB systems such as the TruVativ Howitzer®. 
 
The wide profile and precision fit of our cup tool "teeth" prevent the burring of cup notches caused by thin, stamped-steel wrenches.
 
The ergonomic shape provides a comfortable fit in the hand while the custom edges provide enough grip to prevent dropping even when using the copious amounts of grease required for servicing bottom brackets. 
 
Recent design modifications have made this tool compatible with all known standards of outboard bottom brackets for cranksets with 24 and 25mm spindles.
