Rene Herse One-By Crank $455

1x cranks are seemingly the preferred drivetrain setup for gravel/touring/adventure bikes. Addressing this demand, Rene Herse has developed a One-By crank, complete with a 36t or 40t chainring.

Rene Herse cranks are ideal for one-by setups: Light, strong and easy to dial in. The one-by chainrings have alternating ‘thick/thin’ teeth that have been optimized to mesh perfectly with the chain. The chain won’t derail and fall off even with the extreme chain angles of 12-speed drivetrains.

There are a few options here: If you’ll only ever want to run a single chainring, the single-specific crankarms are the lightest and most elegant. Or choose the “convertible” crankarms that use a custom-machined spacer on the chainring tab – that way, it’s easy to install a second (and even third) chainring in the future.

Rene Herse crank bolts and pedal washers are included. Choose between 36-tooth or 40-tooth chainring.
