Carbon Pro Team vs Carbon Pro Race cranks(4 posts)

Carbon Pro Team vs Carbon Pro Race cranksLowCel

Could someone tell me the differences between the FSA Carbon Pro Team Crank and the regular Carbon Pro Crank? I just ordered a Giant Composite TCR 1 bike and it seems like it should have a carbon crank on it.

I have the carbon pro crank on my mountain bike and I love it. Only makes sense to put the same thing on my road bike.

Thanks in advance.

As far as I know that's the difference.
The Pro Team cranks are 100 % carbon. I was told that these are relatively flexier and, of course, more expensive.
Also, a drawback of the Pro Race cranks maybe inadequate bonding between the alu and the carbon, causing the materials to shift. Rumours all, though. I rode a pair for only 2000 kms without any trouble.
Good luck,
Luke, Amsterdam

Carbon Pro- Has an aluminum spider which is bolted to the carbon crank arm. It has an aluminum guide spanning the length of the carbon arm to align the pedal hole and the bb mounting hole. It serves no structural purpose at all.

Pro Team- Carbon Spider and no aluminum guide. Structural carbon fiber for the entire crank.

Carbon Pro have a Aluminum spider just like your MTB Cranks.
The Carbon Pro TEAM Issue is full carbon arms with a carbon spider.
