    HOLLOW CARBON

    K-Force and SL-K cranksets are molded using a unique air bladder technology to create crankarms containing two long, hollow chambers separated by a structural “I-beam.” FSA’s hollow cranksets are true monocoque structures delivering great strength and featherlight weight.

    HOLLOW FORGING ALUMINUM

    FSA manipulates a single block of 7050-T6 aluminum to yield a hollow crankarm with a superior strength-to-weight ratio.

    ISIS DRIVE

    The International Splined Interface Standard bottom brackets and cranks have options available for use in most English and Italian threaded bottom bracket standards.

    JIS Square Taper Bottom Bracket Interface Standard

    JIS (Japanese Industrial Standard) bottom brackets are characterized by their traditional square taper spindles. Full Speed Ahead’s JIS bottom brackets are cost-effective and robust.

    MEGAEXO Bottom Brackets Featuring External Bearings

    FSA’s 24mm spindle crank & bottom bracket system: MegaExo cranks are available for road and mountain applications and compatible with 68, 73, and 83mm English thread, 70mm Italian thread, and several press-fit bottom bracket standards. MegaExo bottom brackets are available in all thread standards and offer compatibility with Shimano cranks.

    PRESS-FIT 30

    Press-fit composite cups with BB30 bearings fit BB30 cranksets to press-fit standard frames.

    MEGAEVO

    An outboard bearing bottom bracket that adapts 68mm English threaded BB shells to BB386 MegaEvo cranks.

    MEGA QUAD

    ISIS spindle bottom brackets with 4 bearings: a heavy-duty BB for use where higher strength and durability are required.

    MEGAEXO BOTTOM BRACKET

    MegaExo outboard bearing bottom bracket fortified with double row bearings for each side. For use with downhill MegaExo cranks.

    POWERDRIVE BOTTOM BRACKET INTERFACE STANDARD

    PowerDrive bottom brackets have a proprietary arc-splined, forged hollow SCM4130 steel spindle, with industrial 6002KRS sealed cartridge bearings and oversized 3/16” diameter ball bearings.

    COMPONENTS EQUIPPED WITH CERAMIC BALL BEARINGS

    Ceramic bearings are smoother, more durable and overall faster than their steel counterparts. FSA pioneered ceramics in bicycle parts using them in hubs, bottom brackets, headsets, and derailleur pulleys. Ceramic bearings are standard equipment on K-FORCE components and optional upgrades for most of our other product families.

    LOWER FRICTION

    Engineered to minimize friction for lower rolling resistance.

    HIGHER STIFFNESS

    Engineered to optimize stiffness with resulting efficient energy transfer.

    RESISTANT TO CORROSION

    Engineered for maximum durability and use in corrosive conditions such as exposure to road de-icing chemicals.

    LONGER LIFETIME

    Engineered for maximum durability and a longer usable life.

    CARBON WRAPPING TECHNOLOGY

    Carbon Structural Integration (CSI) is a fusion of carbon fiber and aluminum. A structural outer layer of carbon fiber is wrapped around a component’s aluminum core to increase the part’s stiffness and create an elegant carbon aesthetic.

    NANO TUBE CARBON TECHNOLOGY

    A proprietary nano tube carbon construction yields incredible weight reduction of carbon parts.

    SUPERLIGHT CARBON TECHNOLOGY

    Top-shelf carbon construction for MTB components minimizes weight while optimizing stiffness and strength.

    MEGATOOTH

    MINIMAL TOP CLAMP

    FSA’s Minimal Top Clamp (MTC) seatpost head adjusts easily and securely and reduces the amount of material for weight savings of up to 30 grams over other FSA seatpost models.

    SIDE BY SIDE SEATPOST CLAMP

    Full Speed Ahead’s Side By Side (SBS) seat post clamp combines safety and security with elegant aesthetics.

    FLAT TOP CLAMP

    Increases the clearance between the bottom of the saddle shell and the top of the seatpost to allow for full flex of a saddle without interference.

    DUAL ADJUST TILT ANGLE

    Independently adjustable front and rear seatpost bolts allow for easy saddle angle adjustment.

    SUPERFINE ADJUSTMENT SYSTEM

    2-bolt NANO adjust seatposts allow for micro angle adjustment for a more precise saddle fit.
