5DEV, the bicycle componentry division of 5th Axis, is expanding its line of TiAl6V4 titanium cranksets for mountain bikes and eMTBs with more lengths to choose from. Of note for the eBiking contingent is the new 157.5mm option for both Shimano EP8 and Specialized motors, each retailing at $1,399 USD.

At the moment, the 68mm, 73mm, Wide, DH and Fat Bike titanium cranksets are available in lengths of 165mm, 167.5mm and 172.5mm, but we are told the range will soon expand to include 155mm, 157.5mm, 160mm, 162.5mm, and 170mm options. These are expected to be priced at $1,499 USD. The 167.5mm crankset with the 5DEV 8-Bolt T-Type chainring weighs a claimed 596 grams.

5DEV does offer 7075-T651 aluminum cranks and eCranks at a rather more palatable price point. Machined from billet, these crank arms see less ornate machining but are still head turners. The 5DEV aluminum eCranks for EP8, Specialized, TQ, Bosch and Brose motors retail at $449 USD, while the cranks for trail and enduro mountain bikes are yours for $559 USD. There’s also a less flashy looking DH/Freeride crankset at $349 USD.

I don’t care for the looks. EEwings look more better to my eyes.

While these cranks are beautiful and I appreciate the craftsmanship and way that they made something different I still think would look better as wall art, I never understood when a crank manufacturer produced cranks that would result in bloody ankles.
When I designed a crankset, I was definitely ” function over form”, but still I would incorporate what I called a “ankle friendly design” I looked at Campagnolo at the time with their smooth, flowing designs and tried to emulate that.
