The brand-new single-ring SL-K Compact carbon crank offers an amazing blend of performance and value. It’s optimised for 11-speed and weighs just 438g.
The hollow arms are sculpted from unidirectional carbon fiber, and meld with a smaller, smoothly-integrated spider that features our innovative Asymmetric Bolt Spacing (ABS) system. ABS sees the chromoly chainring bolts enter from the rear, and includes a hidden fifth bolt behind the crank arm – it’s the secret to enormous strength that boosts both power transfer and gear shifting.
The 30mm-wide forged aluminum BB392 EVO spindle is plenty stiff enough to cope with the torque, and fits a massive amount of frames. It’s compatible with English Threaded, SMN Press Fit, BB30 and Press Fit 30 bottom brackets with just a few simple spacers. The SL-K is ideal for riders who like to take their upgrades with them to new frames.
The Megatooth chainring is CNC machined from hardwearing 7075 aluminum, and its deep, Narrow-Wide spacing provides superb chain security. The SL-K Compact is available in either 170mm or 175mm lengths, and with chainrings between 26T and 38T.
