The Cinch system used to be only available for the light and expensive Next SL crank. This will change next season, because Race Face has introduced the SIXC, as well as the Turbine crank with the new system at Eurobike 2014.

Das Cinch System kommt in der nächsten Saison bei der Race Face Turbin, SIXC und Next SL Kurbel zum Einsatz.

The Cinch System will be used with the Race Face Turbine, SIXC and Next SL crank from next season on.

A big advantage of the Race Face Cinch system is that all contemporary axe standards are covered with one crank. 26 tooth chain plates are available especially for 1×11 drive. While the light Next SL is made especially for cross country and marathon bikers, the Race Face SIXC crank is made for tougher use. The Turbine model is good on for a wide range of uses and can be bought at an attractive price.

Race Face bewirbt sie als die leichteste und steifste Downhill Kurbel auf dem Markt: Die SIXC

The SIXC is advertised by Race Face as the lightest and stiffest downhill crank on the market.

Egal ob ein, zwei oder drei Kettenblätter, egal welcher Innenlagerstandard, mit den Race Face Kurbeln ist alles möglich.

The Race Face cranks make everything possible.

Dank unterschiedlicher Kettenblattfarben lässt sich das Bike ganz individuell gestalten.

The bike can be turned into an individual object with the help of various colours.

Die bunte Vielfalt setzt sich auch bei den Lenkern fort. Hier setzt Race Face weiter auf die 35mm Klemmung. Ein geringeres Gewicht bei höherer Steifigkeit seien die großen Vorteile.

The different colours can be also found with the handlebars, too. Race Face is using the 35mm clamping width citing lighter weight as well as higher stiffness as the main advantages.

Neu im Sortiment ist die Stash BIB Hose. Sie bietet Stauraum für die wichtigsten Gegenstände und macht so einen Rucksack je nach Tour überflüssig.

The Stash BIB shorts are new in range.

While the Turbine Cinch crank is available for 199 EUR, the Next SL and the SIXC cranks are priced at 449,90 EUR each. The BIB shorts cost 119,90 EUR.
