Finding The Right Road Crankset For You
Finding the right crankset for your road bike can be tough. There are many factors to consider like crank length, spindle diameter, weight, and price. At Rotor Bike Components, we pride ourselves on creating products that are not only performance oriented, but also providing options for every rider. Below is a comprehensive guide to our road crankset line up.
All of our crankset utilize the same Direct Mount (DM) interface which means you can use Rotor's DM chainrings or a 110x4 spider. Rotor's DM chainrings are machined from a single piece of aluminum, meaning they are stiffer and provide additional weight savings over the 110x4 spider/chainring set up. Additionally, all of Rotor's cranksets can be upgraded to be used with the INspider power meter at any time.
Rotor's cranksets use a 30mm spindle unless noted as a "24" crankset, meaning they use a 24mm spindle. Both the 30mm and 24mm axle are available in "Standard" or "Offset" options. The Offset axle is used primarily for gravel bikes.
