Launched over the summer in shiny UK-made silver, Chater-Lea’s classic Grand Tour Cranks now come in limited edition satin black to coordinate with more modern matte bike builds. First teased to be coming ‘back in black’ earlier this autumn, Chater-Lea says customer demand was high for a stealthy option to their new machined alloy cranks. And of course, since it’s Black Friday, they’re offering a bit of an extra deal to get you riding a new crankset through the big shopping weekend…
Chater-Lea Grand Tour Black limited edition classic crankset
Due to popular demand Chater-Lea have produced a limited edition production of their premium Grand Tour cranksets in satin anodized black. Both the sub-compact double 46/30T and single ring options are available – 36T or 40T. The three-arm retro modern, 100% British-made crankset shares all of the same tech as the silver originals, developed for classy road & all-road riding custom bikes.
Chater-Lea Grand Tour Cranks – Tech details
The UK-made alloy cranks are CNC-machined from 7050 T7451 alloy and fit a square taper bottom bracket (110mm for 1x, 113mm for 2x). The cranks all have 170mm arms, with 142mm Q-factor. The 1x rings feature narrow/wide profiles for chain retention, and doubles get machined teeth with shift pins to work with 9-11sp chains.
The black cranks come standard with raw stainless steel hardware, but Chater-Lea says it’ll be possible to get the PVD-coated brass-look hardware too.
Grand Tour Black cranks – Pricing & availability
The Chater-Lea Grand Tour cranks are available now in silver with gold or stainless hardware, and black with gold or stainless hardware. Price for the Chater-Lea Grand Tour Black cranks is £590 for the double setup or £515 for the 1x cranks, almost the same prices as their ti-nitride PVD coated versions.
