FSA Gap Crankset

Our review

Cheap and sturdy-looking but only average strength
Skip to view product specifications

FSA’s Gap is an old warhorse in crank terms and the latest developments definitely put it out to pasture in performance terms.


It’s certainly a beefy beast, with broad arms and steel inserts in the tips to lock your pedals into. Double row Mega Exo Quad bearings give it a broad footing in the frame. A full range of 165, 170 and 175mm arms lengths and 68/73mm or 83mm axle lengths are available.


Despite massive weight (1,330g –100g more than FSA claim) it’s only got an average rating in terms of strength from long-term users though. Then again, the price is cheaper than average so it’s a potential credit crunch option.
