The long awaited crank from Lightning has finally seen the light of day. Often copied, replicated and licensed, Lightning's revolutionary crank is now available with a number of bottom bracket options to adapt to most frame standards. The crank features carbon arms with an aluminum spider, joined in the center by a Hirst Joint (ala Campagnolo). Lightning claims a q-factor of 156 mm, however the pedal threads 2.5mm into the arm on either side, reducing the q-factor to a scant 144mm. Available in a number of lengths, as a standard 5-bolt 130BCD or compact 110BCD, a 4-bolt 110BCD (Shimano 9000/9100), Clydesdale, and with ceramic bearing upgrades. Additionally, compatible with Power2Max power meter.
Lightning cranks are modular. Order the crank length, spider and bottom bracket that you need. We will install the spider arm onto the crank for you. If you're ordering a spare spider you'll need a spider tool. All Lightning Spiders are compatible with both Road and Mountain Lightning Cranks. If you desire a non traditional chainring setup, nearly any configuration can be achieved. If the option is not available here, please contact us and we will be happy to order it for you.
If you'd like to order Clydesdale cranks or ceramic bottom brackets contact us.
