The brand new Profile Elite Cranks, which have been a long time in the making, finally hit shelves last month. The cranks are made in St. Petersburg, Florida, USA from 4340 heat-treated chromoly and utilize a unique “Wedge Lock” system to mount the cranks arms.
The design uses an “internal pinch bolt” tightened to 15-18 ft lbx max with a 10mm allen bolt. An anodized aluminum end bolt is then threaded into the axle to things snug and looking sharp.The four bolt 6061 aluminum spider sits on a steel splined drive insert.
Hope past the break to see a pricing, weight, and more photos. Including the fancy “keepsake metal box with original lithograph artwork by Adi Gilbert of Profile’s owner Jim Alley welding Elite crankarms.”
The cranks arms are available in 175mm and 180mm lengths and the spider/BB/ and threaded cap can be purchased in black, blue gold, red. and silver. Claimed weight is 39.3 oz (w/ BB) and retail is a painful $489.95 USD.
