SRM is now offering their own cranks, with the first one being carbon fiber and made by THM, essentially a Clavicula on their current generation PM7 power meter spider.
The goal is to be compatible with all frames, so their cranks will clear the BB shell of every frame they know of. Why not just make the spider universally compatible? Because it’s somewhat dependant on the crank’s spider or fitment as to whether they can both clear the frame and offer the right chainline. So, anytime a new crank comes out, they’d have to redesign it as best they could. This lets them optimize the design to fit anything.
The carbon one will be released soon (no specific date or price given). Two alloy ones will follow, with the THM-style one coming in for about €1,728. Pricing for the other style (shown directly below) which will be lower end, is TBD.
They’re also offering a PM7 unit to fit AX Lightness Pelton alloy cranks for €2,737 for the complete set with PC8 head unit, or €2,023 without the computer.
Their rechargeable connector is still a work in progress, but development of their next gen PM8 spider had taken priority and will come out before hand with new electronics. No timeline offered.
The PC8 will have a free firmware update in two months that allows for WiFi uploads of ride data to SRM X, Strava, etc.
They’ve added more direct mounts for various brands of bar/stem units, invluding Trek and Specialized, among others. The PC8 is also now available in nearly a hundred different colors and graphical patterns, including Tour Jerseys patterns and team livery.
