Ward Industries Ti Spindles

Short Ti Spindles that fit Crank Brothers Egg Beater Pedals are pictured next to one of our standard length spindles.

Just placed an order of 1 pair of Ti standard size spindles for my Crank Brothers Egg Beaters SL. GONE INSANE!!! The current CB SL pedal weight is 268g. Ward Industries Ti Spindles comes with 3 sizes :-

1) extra short spindles 88mm weight unknown
2) short spindles 91.58mm 31.55g each side
3) standard spindles 95.85mm 33.52g each side

length of the spindles will affect the Q-factor of your ride.

Standard Crank Brothers spindles will weight about @ 95.85mm 68g each side. To reduce the weight you can also purchase the CB Ti short Spindles gold here.

More about Ward Industries Ti

SpindlesCro-Moly Alloy Steel Has been the most tried and true material used in the MTB industry.But it is vunerable to corrosion and is heavy. Most Cycle Riders are on a constant quest for methods to lighten & strengthen there Cycles.

Did you know that the USAF Developed a Next Generation Cro-Moly Alloy Titanium for the F-22 Raptor Program? This material is Ti-6Q2 (Ti-62222s) This material is stronger & tougher than the traditionally used Ti 6al-4v.Yet Ti-6Q2 shares all of the corrosion resistant & weight characteristics as 6al-4v. We have acquired many tons of this special Cro-Moly Ti Alloy. We are the only stocking aftermarket dealer of this material in the world.

To promote the use of this alloy in the commercial sector we began manufacturing replacement spindles for many OEM Pedal Manufacturers such as Shimano, Speedplay, Crank Brothers & DMR. Our products are not manufactured or approved by these OEM's nor is our high strength Titanium Alloy approved by them.

The reliance for our strength claims come from a very reliable source the "United States Air Force".Please take advantage of the millions of dollars of taxpayer funded R&D and apply it to your Cycle pedals through our products.
