The new ALDHU Carbon crank is designed in combination with Rotor’s own 30mm axle. It features Twin Leg Technology, which reduces power loss when force is applied to the left pedal. The crank also uses OCP Mount technology, which allows riders who use Rotor’s ‘Q RINGS’ oval chainrings to adjust the chainring relative to the crank.

The ALDHU, which gets its name from an abbreviation of the legendary Alpe d’Huez climb, was Rotor’s lightest crank. However, with disc brakes driving up the weight of bikes, the brand felt that a carbon crank would be a good way to save weight. 

The ALDHU Carbon weighs in at 523.5g, using 172.5mm crank arms and a 50/34 direct mount chainring. That’s 100g lighter than the previous model in the same configuration. The new cranks are also 11% more vertically stiffness and over 36% more horizontally stiffness, according to Rotor.
