Carbon cranks are great. Foot rub on carbon cranks? Not so much. If you tend to rub your shoes on your cranks like you’re trying to start a fire, the new AMS Honeycomb Crank Guards could be the answer.
Expanding on their current offering of Honeycomb Bike Guards, the Crank Guards use the same semi-rigid PVC material which is said to increase impact resistance while protecting against rubbing.
Made from a clear material with minimal logos, the Crank Guards are designed to let the original look of the crank arms show through. While the adhesive pieces should provide a good deal of added protection, they’re small on weight at 8g. Note that these will not protect the ends of your cranks, just the side.
The skins are said to be easy to install and can be repositioned during the install if needed. Designed and made in Barcelona, the guards should fit most cranks including road and MTB, and sell for €18 a set.
