FSA K-Force Light 386 Cranksets Wins iF Material Award


FULL SPEED AHEAD has won a new award with its MTB crankset K-FORCE LIGHT 386 (both MegaExo and BB30).

In September during Eurobike, iF – International forum of Design, awarded this cranksets for its special design with 3 arms.

Today our K-FORCE LIGHT 386 has won one of the prize of iF Material Award!!


“Material technology is not about doing something new, but about doing something better. What’s important is the harmony between the design and the materials”, said the jurors.

I invite you to read the iF press release at this page:

As many of you know, this crankset is available both for 9 and 10 speed.


These cranksets are already used by many pro teams during this season: Multivan Merida Biking Team, Fulldynamix, Torrevilla MTB and TX-Active Bianchi.

    If these are so great : due to chainsuck with these cranks, Cannondale did a recall of all first- shipment Flash Hi-Mod 1 bikes to replace all FSA 386 cranks with their own Cannondale SI Carbon cranks. The second batch of Flash Hi-Mod 1 bikes had the SI Carbon cranks OEM fitted.

    WTF is up with the fact that you can rub the logo/graphics off these crank arms with your finger nail? No protection? The graphics pretty much just fall off the first time you use them.

  • Seriously says:

    Ask most any FSA carbon crank owner what they think! Because of what happened to me and how FSA treated me. i will never buy FSA again! FSA is banned in my house!
