The Turbine crank has featured in Race Face's lineup since the good old days in 1993, a lot has changed since then but the Turbine have consistently been amongst the best mountain bike cranksets around.
The latest Turbine crankset is aimed at riders looking for a workhorse alloy crankset that they can depend on whether you're riding XC or all-mountain, with the aim of producing a stiff, responsive, and durable crankset.
Race Face has continued with the 7050 aluminum forged construction, except the new Turbine manages to trim a claimed 27g from the overall weight (170mm arms, 136 spindle, and 32t chainring) when compared to the outgoing version.
Race Face says that the Q-factor has also been reduced, claiming that the new width better matches the feel of modern cranks.
The Turbine crankset uses a 30mm spindle and continues to feature a Cinch direct mount system which allows simple chainring changes. The preload collar has also been updated and no longer features a 2mm Allen bolt. Race Face has also updated the look of the Turbine crankset, opting for a much more subtle style.
The updated crankset comes in two widths; 52mm with a DM Ring or 55mm with a DMW Ring. Race Face offers the Turbine with a lifetime warranty.
The Race Face Turbine crankset will retail for $179.99 / £TBC.
