Here’s some news we definitely didn’t expect to see pop up online. RNC have made their return, and they’re coming through with a bunch of products, including this set of new Titanium cranks that look amazing. These cranks are machined out of a solid block of heat-treated 6AL-4V Titanium, which means there are no welds on the arms. There is extra machining to help shave some extra weight in places, but it’s overall a pretty clean an simple looking set of cranks. Based on the video from the testing down below, these things are STRONG. Below are more details as far as sizes available, colors, weight and more.
“One of the lightest and strongest cranksets ever made.
Crank arms are machined from a solid bar of 6al-4v titanium (No welds) and heat treated to make them unbelievably strong and stiff.
Heat treated titanium spindle is 35% stronger than normal 6al-4v titanium.
Flush mount bolts and sprocket bolt are titanium.
Right and left hand drive.
20.4 ounces arms,spindle,flush mount bolts and sprocket bolt in 175mm length and 22mm spindle.
Available in 160, 165, 170, 175, 180mm sizes. If you want custom size contact us we can make it for you for an upcharge.
These cranks are made for whatever abuse you can throw at them. There is no weight limit on them and no they don’t flex due to the triangle design. Look at the video below
the arms went under a 1750 lb load and didn’t even bend.” – RNC
One thing not mentioned in the text, and what most people know is that Titanium is expensive compared to chromoly products, so these cranks are pretty pricey. These new Titanium BMX cranks from RNC will set you back $420.00, but they will likely be the last pair of cranks you will ever run if they’re as strong as they appear to be.
