Campagnolo Crankset EKAR 13v - 175mm 40T
The crankset is the heart of the new 1x Ekar system, with its gear options covering a wide range of uses.
Obviously, the single gear is simple to use: no derailleur, significantly reduced weight, fewer moving components that collect dirt and can create snags and high chain safety, without unnecessary gear overlaps - perfect solution for gravel routes.
The two cranks made of carbon fiber UD mount semipins in steel aisi 630, in line with the skilful combination of materials throughout the Ekar group, in order to obtain lightweight components, but with maximum efficiency and durability.
The new protech technology % combines the two half-pins inside the bottom bracket, with a single screw resistant. The oversized stainless steel bearing is located on the crank, tapered to the semi-pivot, for maximum smoothness and strength - and to be easily accessible for inspection and maintenance, without having to disassemble the caps.
There are four gear options: Adventure has 38 teeth; Pure Gravel is 40T, Fast Gravel is 42T and eGravel 44T. Their optimized design offers efficient transmission and maximum chain reliability.
The lightweight and durable 7075 aluminium gears are easily interchangeable: you can simply unscrew them from the four crank arms without having to disassemble the crankset. The four arms, set asymmetrically for optimum load distribution, feature 123 mm bolt rings. Changing gears is a simple and efficient way to change your relationship as you tackle different types of path.
The Ekar crankset features four crank length options - 165, 170, 172,5 and 175 mm - to fit cyclists and bikes of all types. For some gravel bikes with low bottom bracket, the shorter cranks are the most used to avoid getting stuck on bumpy and unpredictable surfaces.
A Q factor of 145.5 mm offers a comfortable and efficient riding style, whatever your size.
UD carbon arms are equipped with removable end caps to keep your components as new, whatever the terrain you face.
