They're basically a modern titanium version of the Sweet Wings cranks. Very tasty indeed!

modern art. Almost to good to fit and use in a British winter. Also not that light. Add 80 grams for a BB =480 then if you have a spider = 30 gm=510. In the video they compared them to one makers carbon crank. Which is not like for like at half the price of these Ti. I still like then

My issue is that since I ride a lot locally (peaks) but crank arms look awful from all the rock strikes. I’m running x01 on my Kingdom hardtail and XTR on my Evil and they are a fraction of the price and I don’t mind smashing them to bits. But I’d actually feel bad doing that to these Ti beauties.

Great video 8) Scary how flimsy the carbon cranks are :shock: 5G at impact landing to flat for a 180lb rider !! Basically if you are a big chap these are worth the investment and they are stiffer than carbons too, which surprised me. Worth saving up for as you can switch from bike to bike over time and any scrapes can be polished out. Shame nothing of this durability exists in Ti for old bikes.
