When it comes to indestructible cranks, we’d surely put this offering from Kink towards the top of the list. We’ve been installing these on some of Louisville’s hardest riders for years and they’ve held up remarkably well. In fact, we’ve never had anyone break a set to our knowledge.
The Kink Pillar cranks use a unique one piece forged backplate that tie together the pedal and spindle bosses, while acting as an extremely stiff backbone to each crank arm. This design eliminates several weak points found in traditional tubular cranks, and increases the overall strength without adding weight. The Pillar cranks also feature a two piece hydraulically pressed spindle to arm design, and a heat-treated hollow chromoly spindle.
