STEELIST CRANK is a German crank handcrafter. Launch few months ago, Daniel has started producing one and unique stainless steel crank made on his own just for the pleasure to create something unique. A friend of him set up this prototype on a bike project...after few pictures on forum, Daniel started to receive inquires for individual custom cranks. This how STEELIST CRANK is borned !
The choice to use stainless steel to built its custom cranks come from the wish to create a highly rigid and timeless modern crank. Thanks to the use of this material there are no risk that the crank rust or corrode due to scratches or an impact with a rock. After a hard riding season you can simply polish your crank to make it looks brand new. Crankarms are welded pipe with 1,5mm wall thickness are machined on CNC.
The left crankarm is embed itself in the axle guided by a clever system of 5 cylinders, made of stainless steel, that insure zero play ( 0.012 mm less than a single hair 0.04mm), when the main screw come to tighten the all set. The right crankarm is with the axle built-in, and you can set it up with different spiders, 1x or 2x and with different BCD.
There are 4 types of finish available : polished, brushed, sandblasted and a new raw finish : heat-threated.
About crank rings available, STEELIST CRANK is working in Partnership with GARBARUK and can set up your crank with all the range of the brand, but you can also mount any ring that answers to usual BCD standards...or not because Daniel also develop 100% tailored crank.
