Titanium cranks like you've never seen before. These have the look of our famous Twist cranks, but they are crafted from all 6al4v aerospace grade titanium. The raw titanium sheet is laser cut and gets its distinctive twisted and curved shape by special computer-controlled rollers in a mechanism designed and made specifically for this purpose. It took over a year of development and several dozens of iterations to get to this point. The bottom bracket and pedal inserts are machined from billet 6al4v titanium and the whole assembly is TIG welded. These cranks use a BB30 standard spline, so by changing out the 125mm spindle with a shorter one, the cranks can be interchanged from mountain to road bikes. The cranks have a titanium bolt cover that acts as a crank extractor when the 8mm hex on the crank bolt is backed out.
IF YOU LIKE YOUR CHAINRING, YOU CAN KEEP YOUR CHAINRING! We (to our knowledge are the only ones that) offer a series of titanium Adapt-R's to convert our original spline to other popular splines you might have on your chainrings at home. Grab an Adapt-R or three so you can use your TwistTi cranks with all of your favorite chainrings!
The kit comes complete with titanium crank arms, bolt covers, bolt washers, and aluminum 125mm spindle, bolts, retainer ring, and preload adjustment. The 170mm set with all of the above components weighs in at 422 grams.
Finish options include Satin (random sanded) or Brushed (directional sanded) at normal cost, Polished at $85 extra, Anodize Fade for $85 extra, or Splatter Anodize Fade for $100 extra. Anodized options include Polished Bolt covers unless Brushed is requested. Custom anodizing is also available. We can also leave the welds raw if you prefer.
