Rotor has unveiled their new, completely revamped AGILIS 2010 crank with new tech and better looks.

The AGILIS cranks now share their axle and crank clamp design with the 3D crank (a system proven by the Cervélo TestTeam), which allows for a conventional installation procedure. The clamping system uses a single oversized DTT bolt to do what’s normally left to two conventional bolts, and it integrates a replaceable threaded insert between the crank and the bolt, giving preventing the entire system from being ruined if you (like every rider we know) don’t have a torque wrench and overtighten things. RotorThe updated interface and axle dramatically increases stiffness, fulfilling the expectations of even the most demanding consumer.

The crank arms are made using their Hollowminium II manufacturing technology to eliminate “all but the most necessary structural material.”

Visually, the slim crank arm’s curves and striking angles play along with the lightweight theme, but Rotor claims they’re exceptionally stiff, too. Another distinctive visual element is the crank’s spider; which will be manufactured exclusively in red for all crank variants (130 bcd, 110 bcd, XC2 and XC3)…so it’ll match virtually every ceramic BB out there.
