EICMA show – Carbon bits

Cranks are just the start of it. There are now chainrings and fatter weave components to match everything else. No wonder there’s a shortage of the magic black stuff as everyone seems to have made something from it…

Time’s cranks with ceramic chainrings in either compact or standard drive

The RX5 is ‘carbon’ too

The axle on the cranks has oversized bearings and a stainless axle

A full carbon Sword seatpost from ITM

Stronglight’s Ultima crank

And the Vulcan compact crank

The Pulsion in standard drive

And with fat weave carbon

The assembly and bearings for the Stronglight through axle

Pinarello’s compact cranks look sweet

More carbon bits from 3Ts – a seatpost

Tune’s carbon chainrings, a step too far perhaps

Here they are on the Zipp cranks
