|BOX Releases Vector M30-M Cranks for Little Racers|
|ANAHEIM, CA—BOX Components, makers of
high-performance BMX and mountain bike
components, is excited to announce that the
long-awaited mini/junior Vector M30-M cranks are
now available. The Vector M30-M cranks share
oversize design principals with the original
Vector M35 cranks, but they are scaled down to
fit the needs of 5-to-10-year old riders.
Vector M30-M cranks have a cold-forged, 30-millimeter, 7075 aluminium-alloy, Praxis M30 spindle that fits frames with European and BB86/92 bottom brackets, as well as BB30 and PF30. They have hollow-forged arms and a 104 BCD, four-bolt spider.
Each set of Vector M30-Ms includes a Praxis external, M30, European bottom bracket that fits frames with European bottom bracket shells. Compatible BB86/92 and BB30/PF30 bottom brackets are sold separately and available from Praxis directly.
An independent test lab compared a range of cranks to the Vector M35 and the Vector M30-P. Both proved to be stiffer than anything on the market, with the M35s about 10 percent stiffer. It’s safe to assume the M30-Ms are the stiffest little-kid crank out there.
“We believe the Vector cranks are the way to go for any serious BMX racer. While the M35s are the ultimate BMX race crank, the M30-Ps are stiffer than anything else out there. And the M30-Ms are far stiffer than any other crankset for mini and junior riders,” said Max Wunderlich, BOX’s BMX director.
The M30-M cranks come in matte black with laser-etched graphics in 145, 150 and 155 lengths. Suggested retail price for both is $399.
