A solid choice – versatile, light and rigid

The Turbine’s bigger brother can handle any ring combo and a ton of abuse without weighing a ton.

The Atlas uses the same forged and machined construction as its sibling but significantly deeper arms (which are etched with a map of Whistler’s Garbanzo Zone) for seriously stiff, abuse proof performance. The sculpted arms of the spider join directly on to the cranks with a thick web. There are bolt holes for double or even triple rings, and the narrow-wide single ring adds security without any noticeable gear grind.

The non-driveside arm/axle connection and 6mm of spacers makes working round chain devices easy. Current BBs are sound, and while there’s no 30mm axle option, spacer BBs are available.
