First released in 1993 to appease the demands of British Columbia’s North Shore riders, the Race Face Turbine crank has always been a durable and stiff option with a workhouse-like attitude. Modern versions have hit a sweet spot between reliability and weight, making the Turbine a great option for bikepacking rigs as well.
Based on rider feedback, the Turbine Crank was just refreshed to play nicer with modern mountain bikes. Updates include a narrower Q-factor (distance between the pedal attachment points on the crank arms), an updated preload collar, and a new modern look that’s shaved over 20g off the previous version. The Turbine Crank is forged from 700-series aluminum and then machined to save additional weight. It utilizes Race Face’s future-proof CINCH chainring system, allowing for easy chainring swaps, and it’s backed by their lifetime warranty. Watch an overview video from Race Face below.
