Yea the price was a big turn off but understandable. Have you played with them in colder weather? That was another thing that I was worried about as I heard titanium was known to crack in the cold. Also how did they handle crashing as far as scratching or denting?

Used to cast titanium as dental technician. That thing would definetely not crack in any earthly temperature.

Maybe it depends on the purity of your titanium? I thought I had read years ago That titanium was failing with something called cold creep or Sustained load cracking. Pretty much every bolt on my bike is titanium and I haven’t had any failures yet and don’t ride that bike in the winter but my morning rides are definitely in the -6°C some days.

Price aside, pretty hard to fault them in any way. Strong, stiff, have crashed them pretty badly and still rockin', and they're great lookin!
So it's like an slx.


Kidding tho, i'd love to have that much bikemoney to spend on bling.

Half the weight or something like that, for whatever the fuck that matters.

I've ridden my eeWings in below freezing temps, and scraped them on some sharp rocks. I DH on them too. These cranks are worth the price of admission.

Nice bike. Saw a green nomad at Leogang WC amongst a sea of black/dark colored bikes, this color looks so much better in person and matches the Nomad's characteristics.

Yeah it looks way better in person
