This Flagship crankset from Campagnolo features premium materials, elegant construction and incredibly low weight. A titanium crank spindle and bolt are used in place of steel for a 25% weight savings. The unidirectional carbon fiber cranks arms and spider feature hollow construction for lower weight and increased stiffness.
The CULT ceramic bearings were developed by Campagnolo and are widely considered the best bearings ever made available to the cycling industry. They are virtually friction free and extremely durable.
Perhaps the most important item on the crankset is the redesign of the chainrings. The XPSS shifting technology offers up an unprecedented 8 pins for immediate upshifts and 2 zones for optimized down-shifts. An improved tooth profile also provides quicker and more precise shifting. Both chainrings are AFT (anti friction treatment) coated for smoother chain glide and longevity.
The bearings come pre-mounted on the crank, but you will need to purchase the BB cups which are sold separately.
