The Clavicula DP is a lighter, faster version of THM's mountain triple crankset, and at a mere 415 grams, it's among the lightest in the world. The Clavicula is a pure race-bred component; a natural choice for all racers and enthusiasts looking to lower their bike weight dramatically.
This "dp" model (Latin for "double") with its two-chainring design is intended for stronger riders and fast courses. Advantages over traditional triple chainring cranks are improved shifting and lower weight. In addition, the improved chainline allows for the use of almost the full gear range across the cassette. The shorter bottom bracket spindle leads to markedly higher stiffness and better cornering clearance.
Please note that chainrings are NOT included with this crankset. Compatible chainrings include any common 4-bolt 104 BCD rings. This chainring bolt pattern allows for the use of a 32 tooth small chainring. An exception is Extralite's specially-designed 30 tooth chainring. The crank comes complete with bottom bracket and mounting tool.
A proprietary bottom bracket cup tool is needed to install any THM bottom bracket and crank. Along with this tool, all that is required for installation is a 4mm hex wrench and a torque wrench. Detailed installation instructions are included.
