While the market for trail riding enduro enthusiasts with a passion for all mountain and downhill riding may already seem a little crowded, Canfield Brothers is introducing a set of cranks that sets itself apart by accommodating riders of all different sizes.
Their cranks perform one really unique trick, unlike any other manufacturer of mountain bike components, they will be offering their cranks in four different lengths – 155, 160, 165, and 170. This means proud parents don’t need modify cranks for their super groms and riders with clown feet can enjoy a little more clearance. In a market where we’ve pushed a wheelsize and handlebar width for every size and body shape, dialing in crank length seems like the next logical step.
In order to achieve long term reliability, Canfield is using tried and trued technology. The cranks are compatible out of the box with spider-less chain rings using the common SRAM interface, and spiders are also available for those who need the range offered only by existing 2x drivetrains.
One really unique feature of these cranks is the slightly raised bezel around the rim of the cranks, which Canfield claims will help reduce wear from shoe rub.
Claimed weights at 737 for the 155 68/72 cranks (with BB) and 782 for the 165 83mm cranks (with BB) is more than acceptable for a DH worthy offering. The crank and BB package retails for $275. For an additional $50, you can order a set with a MRP Bling Ring or 2x spider.
