White Industries Square Taper Bicycle Cranks

$355.00 USD
$355.00 USD

Like the sign says, this is our square taper road crankset.  We used to call it the “VBC crank”, but the VBC chainrings are now available on our 30mm spindle cranks so to make things less confusing, we just call these “Square Taper Road Cranks” now.  This has been the go-to crank for thousands of road, track, cross, and gravel builds where riders were looking for a simple, proven system that would perform year in and year out. It’s easy to overlook our square taper cranks these days but in reality they’re as relevant today as ever.

Note: Crank bolts, extractors, and chairing lockring included.  Chainrings and bottom bracket sold separately.
