Ciamillo showed prototypes back in October, and now they’ve apparently completely changed up the design. Or, at least, the insides.
The originals promised to be under 450 grams. Shown above is the rework, which they say tips the scales at a paltry 390g. Final details are still under wraps (quite possibly because they’re still being finalized), but the customization options remain. You can specify crank length, BCD (110, 130 or 135) and anodization color for the alloy bits.
The carbon tube structure is a vast departure from the very sleek, aero looking originals, but they also drop significant weight. The weight, BTW, is without the bottom bracket/bearings or rings, and is based around a BB30 spindle. Word is it’ll have a carbon fiber cover to hide the rods, but the shape will be more rectangular. More as we get it.
UPDATE: MSRP will be $1,100, but they’re taking pre orders for $700. Ted Ciamillo told us this allows them to get the product in the market earlier for riders willing to provide feedback and essentially act as phase two beta testers. He said they do tons of testing on their own, but they always learn more when more people have been riding them for four or five months. Wanna get in? Email them with your contact info, crank length, BCD and preferred color. You’ll be among the first to ride them, and they warranty anything that doesn’t hold up on these first generation models. Ted’s working on an information page that’ll fill in more of the crank’s tech specs, and we’ll post more as soon as that’s live.
Thanks to Gregory for the tip!
