With the KAPIC, ROTOR launches a very lightweight and stiff mountain bike crankset for tough cross-country and marathon races. It was named after the legendary Cape Epic, the prestigious stage race on the African continent. Various ROTOR athletes have already celebrated six victories for the Spanish bike experts.

The KAPIC series shares the same practical modular construction as the gravity crankarms ROTOR R-HAWK and R-RAPTOR. This way, the aluminium crankarms can be adapted to almost every frame standard as well as personal preferences, using different axles and chainrings.
BOOST or non-BOOST frame? Oval or round chainrings? Fast change of chainrings in order to adapt the transmission to ground conditions? No problem for the KAPIC crankset!

Direct Mount:
All current ROTOR cranks of the Road Series ALDHU and VEGAST, the MTB series RHAWK , RRAPTOR and KAPIC as well as the powermeters INpower DM and 2INpower DM use the established Direct Mount system for chainring installation. A system that has proven its worth in mountain biking for years. This allows for easy chainring replacement, direct engagement on the axle and maximum flexibility in the choice of gear ratios and drivetrain characteristics. Moreover, the fine toothing between crank and chainring allows you to adjust the oval ROTOR Q rings with 1° accuracy.

KAPIC MTB Direct Mount Crankarms

Wegen den Corona Problem, musste ich mein Kurbelsatz von 3 verschiedenen Händler kaufen. Aber, Kapic ist super leicht und steif und Dank Pressfit, schnell zu Montieren. Der Direktmountsystem ist Klasse. 36Zähne für XC, 32Zähne für Alpin Gebirge.
