Easy-off bolts for ISIS cranks
Staggeringly light, stiff & expensive road cranks
Rotor are an Italian firm who brought us their dead spot-eliminating cranks some time ago. More recently they've turned their attention to conventional two-piece designs which, thanks to an aluminium axle, are around an impressive 200g lighter than a Shimano Ultegra crankset.
These cranks from German über machinists Tune are a cosmetic kick back to the glory days of Grafton and Cook Bros over a decade ago. They're still damn light, though.
The rather workmanlike LX is the crank you buy when you're less concerned about creation of some 'Pro' image and material buzzwords, and more bothered about not having to think the word 'crank' again for at least another five years.
