Race Face sharpens the Turbine crankset

The Turbine crankset has been around since 1993, built for mountain bikers on the North Shore who wanted stiff, responsive cranks without a lot of weight. Since then, the Turbine has been the choice of countless mountain bikers and OEM product managers across the world. How does it get better? Race Face worked on a few things.

The Turbine’s Q-factor has been narrowed and they have updated the preload collar to be more user friendly. It was already pretty light for a set of alloy cranks, but the new Turbine has dropped 20g. It still uses the CINCH system and is forged from 7000 series aluminum, and backed by a lifetime warranty. It comes in 165, 170, and 175mm lengths.

  • Price: $179.99
  • Availability TBD.
