Cane Creek’s eeWings Raven cranks give a new look to their titanium crank arms, painting them a deep gloss black to better match many frames. The automotive finish adds a whopping 3g (yes, they measured it), giving it a fresh look with no weight penalty.
There’s also a new 165mm arm length option for the original brushed, bare titanium finish, helping shorter riders (or those who just want more ground clearance) a serious upgrade option. Those will retail for $999. Now back to black…
Cane Creek eeWings Raven, titanium cranks in gloss black – details
The cranks are the same as before, just with a new finish option. They say it’s a premium multi-layer paint, but like any paint can chip. So, it ships with a clear protective film if you want to keep it safe. You may ask yourself who want want to cover up that beautiful titanium with black paint, but Cane Creek says many riders were looking for a more-subdued look to blend in with the carbon & alloy bikes, while retaining the ti performance, lightweight & durability.
Ravens available in 170 & 175mm lengths for mountain bikes, plus 170mm for all-road. Both versions retail for $1,049. (Other sizes are available in the brushed titanium and ti-dye finishes, but Raven is limited to these sizes listed.)
Road weight should be around 398g / MTB at 403g without spider or BB. They’re made with butted 3/2.5 titanium arms, CNC’d 6/4 titanium spindle/ Hirth joint, and a stainless steel crank bolt. Road Q-factor is 160mm/MTB is 176mm, 30mm spindle only. Chainrings are available separately, compatible with SRAM 3-bolt direct mount.
The Preloader now comes in more colors & 165mm MTB crankarms, too
Need to add a little color back? The Cane Creek Preloader is now also available in anodized orange, red, green, blue & black. Swap them out for $29 each. (It also works with SRAM & RaceFace cranks too!)
And while the black Raven arms come in just two lengths, the standard eeWings Mountain cranks are now available in shorter 165mm arm lengths too, in the original brushed ti finish for the regular $999 pricetag.
All items are available now and ship from Cane Creek retailers and direct. Unrelated, they just launched a new podcast called (wait for it) the Cane Creek Podcast.
