Rotor 3D Plus Road BBright Crankset $849.95
Drop that excess weight.
Rotor made its mark on the cycling world largely through the effectiveness and popularity of its Q-Rings, but it still recognizes that there are those who prefer to stick with round chainrings. That's why the Rotor 3D Plus BBright Crankset accomplishes just that, and it's setup to perfectly complement a Cervélo R5ca frame.
Rotor first explored the use of alloy 30mm bottom bracket spindles through its involvement with the Cervélo Test Team. And while the Trinity drilled arms and compatibility with round or Q-Rings remains the same, these Rotor 3D Plus road cranks have a few small differences in comparison to the Rotor 3D Road Cranks.
The rigidity, light weight, and overall strength remain unchanged. The 3D Plus Road crankarms are all of that due to Rotor's proprietary Trinity Drilling System. On this crank, Rotor drills all three parallel bores from the spindle end. This is contrary to the 3D road cranks' drilling, where Rotor alternates the direction of the bores from both ends of the crankarms. Through this same-end drilling process, Rotor was able to relieve the 3D Plus crankarms of even more excess material, and therefore excess weight. And just as importantly, this was achieved maintaining both the rigidity and the strength-to-weight ratio that you need for race day. On top of this, the CNC machine work and laser etched graphics give Rotor cranks a distinctly industrial appearance.
The 30mm alloy spindle is sized to work with either BB Right or BB30 standards, and while the spacers for BB30 are not included with this crankset, they are readily available. In fact, with the proper Rotor bearing cups (BB30-BSA), the 3D Plus is able to be used in a standard 68mm English-threaded or Italian-threaded bottom bracket shell. In any application, Rotor's clever design and machine work is evidenced by its use of a locking preload collar that makes bearing adjustment a breeze once the crankarms are installed and torqued to spec. This preload collar is another difference from the standard 3D Road Cranks, as they use a different system to connect it all together.
The Rotor 3D Plus Road BBright Crankset is compatible with Cervélo BB right specification, BB30 frames (adapters not included), and classic threaded frames that use Rotor "BSA30" BB cups. It's available with a 170mm, 172.5, or 175mm crankarm length and compact 50/34t or standard 53/39 round chainrings. The 3D Plus Cranks have a 147mm Q-factor.
What community has to say
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I realize that this model is no longer in stock, but I bought this on sale from you guys and all I can say is that this crank is fantastic. I can feel the difference from the original crank that came on the caad 10 105 vs. the rotor crank...super stiff and it is lighter..doesn't hurt that the crank looks sweet on the bike as well.

How much does the crankset weigh without the bearing?
This crakset includes the chainrings?
This crakset includes the chainrings?
yes it does i just got mine today...had a very small blemish/rub on the crank arm but other than that it looks pretty sweet...can't wait to get it on the bike
will this fit a cannondale caad 10 frame?...
will this fit a cannondale caad 10 frame? bb30? and is the bottom bracket included?
Should be OK on the Cannondale. No bottom bracket included with that crank, but right now is a killer deal on those cranks/rings from Competitive - can't go wrong.
Yes it will fit a Caad 10. It does not come with BB but if you buy this you need to contact Rotor and tell them to send you the necessary spacers. I took photos and emailed Roto exactly what came with the crank from Competitive and they sent me the necessary stuff. Cost with postage was $13. Ask for Cameron, he rocks.
