Lighten the crank, drop the hammer. At least that was Simon Clarke’s system when he won Stage 5 of the Tour de France, laying down the watts with his Aldhu Carbon & INspider on the wicked Arenberg cobbles.
A World Tour Team like Israel Premier Tech takes full advantage of the versatility of ROTOR’s award-winning modular crank design when they go from aero time trial priorities, to cobble-conquering stiffness for the sprint, to gram-defying climbing goals. Why do you care about design awards? Because those awards mean ROTOR reduced the number of parts & interfaces, allowing us to shed those pesky grams and incidentally, there’s less chance of creaking. It also means you can run your rig 1x or 2x, make it aero, make it featherweight, or make it a watt-tracking machine.
At 350g for a 172mm crank/axle, Aldhu Carbon is light enough to race up the Alpe d’Huez while still crushing the Roubaix sections that challenge the strongest setups.
