Crankbrothers 170mm Highline Dropper, New Wheels, Pedals and More

Crankbrothers was pleased to introduce us to a variety of products including a new 170mm version of their Highline dropper post. Crankbrothers previously offered the post in 160mm of travel but figured out a way to shorten the insertion length which allows them to provide 170mm of travel in the same total seatpost length. They also have a new 150mm version.

Next up is the Lithium 27.5+ e-bike wheelset which is said to be an e-bike specific wheelset with a 35mm inner width, steel freehub and axle, straight 2.0 gauge spokes for added durability, and a reinforced rim.

For those riders who are a little bit intimidated by the thought of trying out clipless for the first time or for those who simply prefer an earlier release from their pedals, Crankbrothers is now offering Early Release cleats which disengage at 10-degrees versus the 15-degrees their standard cleats release at. The cleats are offered with both 0 and 6-degrees of float and will come stock with Crankbrothers level 1 pedals.

Crankbrothers was also stoked to show us a new Sapphire floor pump which features an analog gauge that is easy to read and a large, stable platform. A ball needle and inflator are tucked inside the handle which makes this one a good pump for family use. It’s compatible with both Presta and Schrader valves.

Danny Mac has been busy creating another co-lab with Crankbrothers with the Stamp 7 Danny Mac Signature Edition Pedals. These weigh in at 345-grams per pair, are a bit thinner than the other Danny Mac models at 11-13mm thick, and feature a graphic design that was voted on by fans of Danny and Crankbrothers. We really dig the textured center portion which will no doubt offer additional traction.

Finally, Crankbrothers introduced us to the Stamp 1 pedal which features a nylon body that is 13mm thick and has replaceable pins that thread through the back. These $45 pedal come in large and small sizes starting at 299-grams per pair.
