The company Crank Brothers from the USA is a solid icon for mountain bike fans. Maintenance-free plain bearings of the motion plastics specialist igus are used in the pedals of this manufacturer. Tests at igus and at Crank Brothers confirm an eight times longer service life compared to alternative solutions. In bicycles the different types and superstructures are as different as they have uses. For some, it is mere means of transport in everyday life, for others, fitness machines, utility vehicles or even equipment for leisure time fun. In the latter segment, there are also great differences - from the cool city cruiser to the off-road mountain bike, where the components sometimes have to withstand hard shocks. The products from Crank Brothers of the USA are used here. The company manufactures components for mountain bikes - from wheels and handlebars up to pedals. The company based in California develops its products together with professional cyclists and stands for innovative design combined with premium components, fit for the highest demands of the users.
