When we were developing Railhop Cranks, we had two tasks:

Protect the medial malleolus (the bone bulging out on the ankle) from sharp edges of the cranks.

Design and implement the world's strongest cranks

When we were developing Railhop Cranks, we had two tasks:

Protect the medial malleolus (the bone bulging out on the ankle) from sharp edges of the cranks.

Design and produce the world's strongest cranks


What did we do?

We shortened the profile of the crank by 10% compared with the first version. According to our calculations, this change reduced the frequency of ankle injuries by about 40%.

For the production of STRESS cranks, we used heat-treated steel of a Japanese brand. This is the best steel available on the market.

BMX cranks are exposed to huge and very specific loads. Thanks to the extensive experience we have gained over the years of riding our bikes, collecting statistics and testing, we now know that tubes with a "rectangular" section are the best for BMX cranks.

The frequency of ankle injuries reduced by 40%

Gusset

We were the first in the world to develop and introduce a gusset on cranks in 2013, which was produced to make cranks stronger, as well as to reduce the number of injuries to the medial malleolus. The gusset smoothes out the angles, practically excluding the possibility of getting a deep cut. For the production of the gusset, chromoly steel is used, which is cast in a special form. Then it is welded over the entire mounting area of the cranks to the spindle. Then the top of the seam is further polished to create a flat and smooth surface.
