Our best 7050 alloy and OCT hollow forge technology combined in a best-in-class DH crank 75 grams lighter and 10% stiffer than our Holzfeller. This is the strongest and lightest extreme-use crank in the market. Period. Throw anything you want at it. Offered in Rock Guard doubles, DH single, and Bash Guard single ring models. Bash Guard meshes with our Box Guide for awesome chain management.

Our AL-7050-TV aluminum isn’t just strong. It’s benchmark strong — 75% stronger than the 6061 aluminum commonly used at this level. Impressive in its raw state, AL-7050-TV ups the ante to bulletproof status through the extrusion, forging and heat-treatment processes that create our pro-level Holzfeller OCT, Holzfeller, Omnium, Rouleur, and Stylo components. It’s why our Holzfeller OCT crankset gives you double the pedal thread and BB interface strength of 6061-T6 cranks. AL-7050-TV. Benchmark stiff. Benchmark strong.
Howitzer Bottom Bracket System
Hit me, beat me, hurt me. Thank you. The Howitzer Bottom Bracket System is purpose-built for Freeride and DH abuse, with CNC machined AL-6061 cups, a chromoly spindle and extreme strength throughout. Oversized cartridge bearings produce a super durable external BB system that’s also agile. You can even switch bikes but keep your favorite cranks by getting a Howitzer BB that fits your new ride.
A single mass of premium AL-7050-TV alloy is pushed, pulled and squeezed into a hollow crank arm. Result? Supreme strength without the tank-like weight. We weren’t the first to fabricate hollow crank arms. But we’re the best. You won’t find a higher stiffness-to-weight ratio. Our Open Core Technology cranks are stiffer, stronger, and lighter weight than any solid forged crankset.
