FSA creates modular cranksets, new dropper post and more

We spy their 2017 gear at the Taipei Cycle Show

It's shaping up to be a big year for components brand Full Speed Ahead (FSA), with plenty of new products across road cycling, triathlon and MTB at the Taipei Cycle Show.

On the road side they have a full range of SRAM 1x-compatible cranksets, from lightweight carbon SL-K models right down to entry-level Vero Pro offerings. 

FSA have added a line of gravel/adventure components for 2017 too, including this omega adventure chainset with 30/46t, 46/36t, 48/32t, 50/34t, and 52/36t chainring options:

On a similar note, they now have a range of compact ‘gravel/adventure’ cranksets offering a wide range of chainring options from pro-compact 52/36 through 50/34, 48/32, 46/36, and even a 46/30t. 

FSA's new range of mtb stems looks squarer and beefier than their road-going cousins. this k-force light model comes with a +/- 12 degree angle and length options between 60 and 140mm, with a low 35mm clamp stack height:

For mountain bikers they have new beefier stems with -12° drops and various lengths, plus some -20° options. There’s also a new dropper post, first unveiled last September, and new modular cranks that can easily switch between single, double, standard or Boost 148 with the use of a simple tool. 

FSA couldn’t give us any more info or pricing, as none of the new stuff is ‘officially’ launching here in Taipei – we might have to wait as long as Eurobike in September for that. But check out our gallery above for more of the latest from FSA, as there is plenty of it…
