AGILIS 3G CRANK
The AGILIS 3G crank has been completely revamped, being upgraded both technically and visually, to bring the Agilis into the new decennium at a level of performance you expect from ROTOR.
Technically, the update has been nothing less than revolutionary. AGILIS cranks now share their axle and crank clamp design with 3D crank (a system proven by the Cervélo Test Team), also allowing for a conventional installation procedure. This ultra-secure clamping system uses a single oversized DTT bolt to do the clamping job only two conventional bolts can do and integrates a replaceable threaded insert between the crank and the bolt, giving extra protection against product damage due to over-tightening. The updated interface and axle dramatically increases stiffness, fulfilling the expectations of even the most demanding consumer.
Continued application of our proven Hollowminium II crank arm manufacturing technology ensures that the ever-critical weight constraints are attended to by the elimination of all but the most necessary structural material.
Visually, the results are spectacular. The new, elegant laser design belies the crank's exceptional rigidity and accentuates its light weight; harmonizing perfectly with the crank arms' fluid shape by mimicking their attractive organic curves and striking angles. Another distinctive visual element is the crank's spider; which will be manufactured exclusively in red for all crank variants (130 bcd, 110 bcd, XC2 and XC3). Full integration of the ROTOR logo into the new design language of the crank provides a competition ready branding style without jarring with the Agilis' newly found supermodel look.
HOLLOWMINIUM II TECHNOLLOGY
AGILIS 3G Cranks are produced from billet aluminium, which is turned, drilled out and CNC'd to make a stiff, light crank arm (now 12 grams lighter than the '08 version due to a larger internal drill diameter). This process enables us to maintain the aluminium's strong molecular structure and fibre orientation, which allow us to preserve its outstanding properties despite removing a substantial amount of material. AGILIS Cranks are ultra-hollow in a way that makes sense, allowing them to be light, strong, stiff and structurally sound, which is referred to as Hollowminium II technology
