UPDATE: the voting was intense this week, but in the end, Claudio Olguin's shot of the Fantastic Four aka the Hutchinson UR Team having a little fun in Chile took home the popular vote. Vital member krsh is our lucky voter.  Claudio will receive the brand new AM/DH cranks while krsh takes home a pair of Crampon pedals - both from from the Canfield Brothers!

The AM/DH cranks are all-mountain light but DH tested and proven. Forged 7075 arms and a 7075 24mm spindle ensure the highest strength to weight ratio available in an aluminum crankset today. Uniquely, the AM/DH cranks are made in lengths from 155-170mm. This is because similarly to the Crampon pedal series, Canfield wanted to create the highest amount of clearance to keep the rider from getting hung up on rocks and other obstacles. Shorter cranks will allow for pedaling in more situations without the constant worry of clipping your pedals.

The Crampon series pedals from Canfield Brothers is the evolution of more than 7 years of development and more importantly, real world testing. Proven on the world cup DH circuit but suitable for any style of riding, the benefits of these pedals extend way past the weight. The patented unique shape and profile offer the rider superb grip and maximum impact clearance. Because there is no front edge for the pedal to contact, there is never a stall moment or worse, over-the-bars crash that can occur with “block” style pedals. Keeping the foot close to the spindle of the pedal further increases the efficiency of the pedal stroke, and the “convex” shape naturally contours the foot and helps provide even more grip.
