New for 2011, the RaceFace Turbine Cranks not only come in a few colors, they come in various drivetrain ring combos to match up with whatever you are (or want to be) mashing.
They’re forged and CNC’d from 7050 in their well-known and long used I-beam shape, they’re available with 9- or 10-speed chainrings in double and triple formats, or a double with a bash guard. Or, you can just get the crankarms with spider and put whatever rings you want on them.
More pics and official PR after the break…
- 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.
- Lifetime warranty (versus XT’s 2 year coverage).
- 3 color options: black, red and grey.
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 2×10, 3×10 and 3×9 setups, we’re also offering 2×9 (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.
