The new eeWings come in a subdued, brushed titanium finish with a laser-etched graphic on the face of the crank.

If you ask any rider what looks classy on a bike, many would respond “titanium tastefully done.” The material is light and in the right hands can be made stiff and exceptionally durable.

Cane Creek looks to have done just that, releasing a new premium crankset called eeWings. They are crafted from high-grade titanium, and designed for ultimate stiffness and durability while weighing in at just 400 grams.

Cane Creek designed the eeWings to keep up with the rigorous demands of the most aggressive trail and enduro mountain bikers, though they should benefit just about any rider who puts a premium on durability, stiffness, and lightweight.

Cane Creek has such confidence in the eeWings’ quality and durability that they are backing the cranks with a 10-year limited warranty.

The new cranks have a titanium 30mm spindle and are compatible with BSA73mm, PF92/PF89.5, and 392EVO bottom brackets, as well as PF30 and BB30 bottom brackets with outboard bearing configurations. The eeWings also include an innovative new CNC machined aluminum preloader that is compatible with multiple other high-end 30mm spindle cranks, providing a more durable solution over preloaders from other manufacturers, which are often made from plastic or other less durable materials.

The eeWings were developed in collaboration with components designer Craig Edwards and represent the first major expansion to Cane Creek’s line of ee products. Edwards joined the Cane Creek team in October of 2016 as part of a deal for the company to take over manufacturing and distribution of his ultra-light eeBrake business.

The eeWings come in a subdued, brushed titanium finish with only a minimalistic laser-etched graphic on the face of the crank. In addition to allowing the titanium to take center stage aesthetically, this simple design will allow riders to use Scotch-Brite or a similar abrasive to remove small scratches and blemishes that accumulate in the finish over time and use.
