Brand new for 2011, check out our paradigm-shifting Turbine Cranks.
With the Turbines, we've got almost every conceivable configuration covered. Beyond the standard 2x10, 3x10 and 3x9 setups, we're also offering 2x9 (plus bashguard), and straight up crank arms as well. Available in 170, 175, and 180mm lengths, you'll be hard pressed to dream up a combination that we don't make.
Regardless of the configuration, all Turbine cranks are painstakingly engineered using ultra high-strength 7050 aluminum, then near-net forged and CNC finished for the aggressive I-Beam profile you've come to know and trust from Race Face. And because it's from Race Face, you can expect them to be packed with more useful features than a Swiss Army knife: 7075 rings for precision shifting and wear resistance, alloy Torx hardware for a secure installation, removable granny spider for better chainguide fitment, and an available titanium spindle for your inner weight weenie.
The product of years of R&D, it's been an amazing experience designing, riding, and abusing these cranks. We can't wait to hear how much you'll like them, too.
BUILT FOR: XC Racing/Trail/All mountain
Light enough for XC but strong enough for aggressive all-mountain riding.
New lighter weight Turbine BB with titanium coated bearing races to keep water out and and set a new standard in durability.
7050 alloy construction, resulting in unmatched yield strength and stronger pedal threads than XT.
The cranks are the part of your bike that your pedals attach to, which turn and drive the chain of your bike. The chainset includes the cranks, front chainrings, the axle that joins them and sometimes the bottom bracket they pass through.
Who needs cranks and chainsets?
Every bike has them, so if yours are worn out, broken or in need of an upgrade, you need them.
What are the choices?
Chainsets are available as single, double (often called compact) or triple ring, in road or mountain bike versions. You should choose based on the type of gearing you need on your bike.
