The Nimbus VCX is taking over from the where the Excellent Nimbus Venture II crank left off. Nimbus have used the data collected from the Nimbus Venture II crank to produce a better all round design. The design has then been run though a Finite Element Analysis (FEA) program to see how they behave under extreme conditions.
The VCX cranks are slightly wider than the Venture II's and have a smaller radius on the hub end, making them better for rolls and urban riding. The VCX is only available in ISIS interface. If you are fitting these cranks to a Nimbus ISIS hub you will need 6mm spacers to get the best fit. This may vary for other hub manufacturers and the age of the hub.
Pedal washers go between the pedal and the crank, helping to increase the life of your cranks. Plus, ensuring maximum contact between both (keeping your pedals tight). We recommend pedal washers for all aluminium cranks.
Made from 6066 T-6 Aluminium, so we can be sure that they are a strong, long lasting and durable crank. The Silver version of these are available in sizes 75, 89, 102 & 114mm. If you require a longer VCX click here.
These cranks fit a 9/16" pedal
