Thanks to its integrated carbon-spider design, the Force is SRAM's lightest crankset, weighing in at only 665g. A 6K carbon weave, developed and perfected in SRAM's own dedicated carbon-fiber manufacturing facility, yields a one-piece design that's lighter and stiffer than traditional cranks. The arms are finished with a unidirectional graphite sheet and clear coat for a deep, lustrous finish. The Force crankset uses SRAM's exclusive hard-anodized PowerGlide chainrings for long-lasting performance.
SRAM's GXP Team English threaded Bottom Bracket (NOT included). Radial loads are transferred to the GXP's drive-side bearing, optimizing bearing loading and power transfer while minimizing wear. The GXP's design allows for greater variation in BB shell alignment, maintaining precision and performance regardless of thread and construction irregularities in the frame.
