One Chainring To Rule Them All: Ekar 13
The Campagnolo Ekar 1x13 crankset is the heart of the new Ekar gruppo, with its optimized gearing ratios and minimal steps between shifts.
Of course paring down to a single chainring is as simple as it gets – no front mech, significantly reduced weight, fewer moving parts to collect dirt or clog, and providing high chain security, with no wasteful gearing overlap – perfect for gravel riding and racing.
The unidirectional carbon fiber cranks feature a strong, durable 630-grade steel alloy crank axle – following the maxim of pairing strength and light weight employed across the Ekar groupset. New ProTech™ technology joins the two semi-axles inside the bottom bracket, with a single, oversized bolt. Oversized stainless steel bearings sit on the crank, fixed on the semi-axles, for maximum smoothness and strength – and easily accessible for inspection and maintenance without the requirement to extract the cups.
There are four chainring options ranging from 38 to 44T. The narrow-wide design provides efficient drive and maximum chain security. The light, strong 7075 aluminum rings are easily interchangeable – you can simply unbolt them from the four spider arms without removing the crankarms. Effortlessly adapt to different terrain by simply swapping out rings.
The Ekar crankset features four arm length options – 165, 170, 172.5 and 175mm – to suit riders of all sizes and styles. A narrow 145.5mm Q-factor creates a comfortable, efficient pedal stroke, whatever your size. The UD carbon arms come with neat, removable protective end caps, to keep components looking like new, whatever the terrain.
