In the rapidly emerging world of electric assisted mountain bikes many components have been inherited from traditional (analogue) bikes without fully understanding the ergonomic and performance implications. With the development of the FORX range of cranks we have addressed this and tailored the Cranks to improve bike performance and rider comfort, safety and confidence.
The FORX cranks have unique length and shape that not only improves electric motor performance through enhanced cadence but also provide a more natural 'Q-Factor' with better ankle clearance, less knee, hip, and back strain, as well as reduced 'crank strikes' - it's a game changer. These fundamental design changes allow for greatly improved rider experience.
Made from aircraft 7075 aluminium grade CNC'd to extremely tight tolerances, our design draws on the engineering performance of a honeycomb beauty that greatly reduces the weight of the cranks while also providing a strong well balanced underfoot experience. An ebike crank that looks great and fits well into the design languages often found in the eMTB world. The 5 base crank variation covers almost all ebike motors/bikes on the market in 2023.
Designed and rigorously tested over 2 years by mountain bikers, for mountain bikers. Cranks specifically designed for the next level in mountain ebikes. Ride hard and safe with confidence.
Proudly designed and tested in the mountains of Queenstown New Zealand.
