Other Info & Details:
Our Seth Kimbrough signature Noctis Cranks feature our proprietary Shadow pedal boss system that allows for an aluminum crank that will not strip out on you. Hydraulically pressed, the pedal boss will not spin when you tighten down your pedals. The cranks are also nano sprocket compatible, and include a 22mm spacer for all sprockets.

What’s in the box?
Crank arms, regular and nano sprocket bolts, pinch bolts, 22mm spacer for sprockets, and space grease!

What were your goals when designing this product?
Seth wanted an alloy crank that was designed in the realm of the original GT Power Series cranks. We went in and attacked the main issue of stripped out pedal bosses and creaky cranks and ended up with the Noctis cranks.

Why are your cranks better than others, or what makes them different from others on the market?
Our cranks feature hydraulically pressed pedal bosses that prevent stripping, a common problem in alloy cranks. We also developed a 16-spline spindle connection that reduces the creaking and wobble that you find in most aluminum crank sets. Plus, Seth rides ‘em…is there any other questions?

Smoother design. I like that. They'll probably be just as good as Primo's.

Guess this speaks to what a good design GT came up with back in the 80's. Basically they're just power series v4 cranks.
Might pick some up if they make em in white

Just for the record, when I got my BTM... It wasn't "Trendy"

Love them. Improved primos, and the primos are good enough as they are. I like the look as well, but that design is an ankle killer!
