Wattshop Cratus Aero Crank

Wattshop is a high performance cycling boutique, specialising in equipment such as waxed chains, carbon fibre arm rests, extension systems, aerodynamic testing and other watt saving solutions.

A recent addition to their product line was the Cratus Aero Crank, a carbon fibre aero crankset designed to be class leading in every aspect from aerodynamics and drivetrain efficiency through to biomechanics and stiffness. Composites Evolution’s https://compositesevolution.com/products/products-services/-epoxy-component-prepregs/ was chosen by moulder DJ Engineering Services Ltd in order to meet Wattshop’s exacting performance requirements.

Dan Bigham of Wattshop commented, “Composites Evolution was the natural choice of prepreg supplier as they offered the flexibility and capability to create a custom resin formulation tailored to our specifications”.

The crankset, manufactured from https://compositesevolution.com/products/products-services/-epoxy-component-prepregs/ with an additive enhanced resin system to increase toughness and reduce friction, featured on both Dan Bigham and Joss Lowden’s time trial bikes for their respective Men’s British and Women’s UCI Hour Records. It was also used by Ashton Lambie during his Men’s 4km Individual Pursuit World Record ride which saw him become the first rider to cover the distance in under 4 minutes.
