The Kapic Crank Arms are Rotor's lightest and stiffest mountain cranks to date, aptly named in honor of the six cumulative victories Rotor athletes have achieved at the legendary Cape Epic race in South Africa. The Cape Epic is one of the most prestigious mountain bike stage races in the world, requiring racers to navigate grueling rocky climbs, miles of forested singletrack, and countless technical descents over an eight day period. A race like this requires a crankset that delivers stiffness and control in these arduous conditions, but with a low weight to preserve rider energy and maximize efficiency. The Kapic delivers on both fronts, being expertly crafted to mirror the strength and agility of Africa's fastest land mammal, the Cheetah. The Kapic Crank Arms are designed with an innovative modular system that lets you select each crank component individually based on your unique bike setup and preferences. It uses the same spline interface as the heavier-duty Hawk crankset, making it compatible with all of Rotor's direct mount MTB chainrings--round or oval. But unlike the Hawk, the Kapic cranks are constructed from lighter weight aeronautic-grade aluminum and are designed to pair with the lighter Kapic spindle (sold separately). This saves almost a half-pound of weight compared to the Hawk cranks, but you'll still enjoy exceptional stiffness to conquer the toughest mountain bike routes.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
