The new Praxis Works LYFT is a very lightweight mountain bike crankset. If claimed weights hold up, they’re in the realm of Race Face Next SL G4, which are among the lightest cranks available. Check the video for details on that, plus the HD version for more aggressive (or heavier) riders, and catch a few more pics and specs below…

Praxis’ cranks work with a 30mm spindle, and they make spindle lengths and bottom bracket solutions to fit those into most any frame, including standard BSA threaded. Retail for the LYFT and LYFT HD are $500 including one chainring, protective tape and end bumpers. BB’s are extra.

What Adam forgot to mention is that the Wave Tech chainrings are compatible with 10, 11 and 12 (Eagle) speed chains. They come in 28-34 tooth options, in even numbered increments. All are direct mount and come in standard or Boost chainline offsets. Check out the backside and more new stuff from Praxis in our Taipei Cycle Show coverage here.
