Bicycle crank - Wide range of MTB and single speed standards
One of the most stressed parts of a mountain bike is the crank. In addition to pedaling, the bicycle crank must withstand the weight of the rider, which puts a lot of strain on the cranks when driving through rough terrain. In enduro and downhill jumps and tricks additional load peaks occur.
Modern bicycle cranks convince by a low weight with maximum stability. Due to the different standards of the bottom brackets you can choose from a variety of cranks for your bike. If you decide against a complete set and want to exchange only one crank on your bike, you should absolutely pay attention to what a bottom bracket is installed in your bike, because there are different standards used by the manufacturers. There are, inter alia, Hollowtech II, BSA, Einpresslager or howitzer as bottom bracket standard. What kind of recording do your chainrings have? Do you need a 3-arm, 4-arm, 5-arm crank or is your chainring mounted with a center lock system? How long do you want to crank your bike? There are different crank lengths, which changes the power on the drive and the ground clearance of your bike by the longer or shorter lever. This ground clearance is especially important for mountain bikes. In rough terrain with rocks and roots, it quickly happens that you get stuck with your pedals. Bicycle cranks are also made of different materials. Most are milled from aluminum and have a high stability and low weight. But if you put on really every gram value, you can also access high-quality and expensive carbon cranks.
Complete sets - Light weight
With a modern crankset you save not only weight, but also money through the sophisticated construction! With a crankset you get a complete package consisting of chain rings, pedal crank and bottom bracket. The number of chainrings depends on your preferred area of application. Three chainrings ensure a wide range of action when touring. In short translated you climb every mountain and the long translation allows you rapid descents.
As a downhiller, dirt biker or enduro racer, you only need a single chainring. For optimal driving efficiency many bicycle cranks are offered with different crank lengths.
When buying a crankset, please pay attention to the installation width and compatibility with your circuit and your frame! Depending on the chainring or the chainrings you may need a special bicycle chain, which is specified in the item description of the crank. In our shop you will find the ideal crank and the right accessories for every application!
Fixie Crank - The great choice for singlespeed
The extremely stressed parts of a fixie are the chain and the crank. In addition to the body weight on the crank arms, the bicycle crank must withstand the braking and pedaling force. The crank is burdened with singlespeeders and fixies many times over. Due to the different standards of the bottom brackets, you can choose from a wide selection of cranks for your fixie. Singlespeed cranks are also used on BMX and dirt bikes, here the load is also high. By jumps and other tricks, the cranks here a lot of demands, so they are designed incredibly robust.
