FSA Bicycle Cranks
FSA Bicycle Cranks are made using a number of different manufacturing
technologies. Here's a list of your options in order of declining
price and sophistication.
Light Crank: monocoque carbon 3K weave, totally hollow crank
arm with fully integrated spider. Thus this FSA bicycle Crank is
a one piece "crank arm + spider" casting and can be differentiated
from its cheaper SL-k cousin by its distinctive "woven"
Team Issue FSA Cranks: monocoque carbon 3K weave crank arm
as with the K-Force line but with an independently cold forged alloy
SL-K Carbon Cranks: glass fiber enhanced carbon with an
internal I-beam reinforcement to incorporate the rigidity and strength
of the K-force line but at a better price point. Also one of FSA
bicycle cranks with a one piece spider + crank arm construction.
Energy: is one of several FSA road cranksets that are constructed
using Aluminum hollow forging technology, with a high overall strength
to weight ratio. It uses AL6061/T6 aluminum in the Energy
line of bicycle cranks.
Omega: Cast aluminum crank arms with fully integrated spiders.
One of the heaviest FSA bicycle cranksets weighing in at over 1000
Vero: cold forged aluminum road crank arms with one piece
spider and crank arm design.
Length Options for FSA Drive Crank Arm:
170 mm is probably the most common FSA drive crank arm length,
but it is almost always also available in 172.5 and 175mm and
occasionally in a shorter 165mm length
