ÁGUEDA, Portugal, Nov. 27, 2014 /CNW/ - MIRANDA®, a premier supplier for the bicycle industry, has announced today the launch of their revolutionary INFINIUM™ crankset, introducing their ChainFLOW™ technology, with its unconventional tooth profile, to the market.

Protected under international patents, issued and pending, the ChainFLOW technology is MIRANDA's answer to the narrow-wide tooth profiles tendency. Developed to outperform currently available systems, ChainFLOW helps to reduce wear and operation noise, prevent chain drops, and improve overall efficiency by reducing wasted energy to a minimum. With less friction between the chain and the chainring,riding is smoother and more controlled, with maximum power efficiency in all riding conditions. This is achieved by a proprietary and non-standard tooth profile, where the chain engages sooner on the chainring, directly on the roller moving parts and on more contact points, significantly reducing wear and enhancing the chain load distribution. The precision-machined teeth have very strict tolerances, so the chain operation is more definite and progressive, even in excessively muddy riding conditions.
To further improve the performance, the titanium alloy chainring on INFINIUM is coated with a custom-formulated carbon nanoscale matrix shield, reducing friction to near zero and hugely increasing the endurance and longevity of the chainring. The spindle, which will be available for various bottom bracket configurations, is also made of titanium alloy, with a design that can handle very high load conditions.
To complement the high rigidity and reliability of the INFINIUM crankset, the Delta crank arm model was developed using special automatic and proprietary nanostructuring cold forged aluminium manufacturing processes. Known for its resistance, the award-winning Delta, available in 170mm or 175mm, can sustain and absorb hard rock impacts without causing any structural damage. Its unrivalled endurance properties and superb resistance to impacts is confirmed by test reports made by reputable external laboratories, even in conditions that largely exceed the ones demanded by the DIN EN safety standards.
The whole set was designed to be extremely durable but light, weighing under 590 grams on some configurations, making it one of the lightest cranksets available, with a leading strength-to-weight ratio.But what really differentiates this crankset from all others available on the market is that it incorporates uncommon and premium materials such as titanium on the chainring and spindle (no other 1x11 crankset on the market uses this alloy), and the carbon-based layers to lubricate and protect the chainring. The INFINIUM crankset is the first to incorporate ChainFLOW cutting-edge technology - an innovation that will improve the riding experience when high-performance is necessary.
This INFINIUM crankset will feature on some exclusive bicycles from the major brands and will be available in Q1 2015:
- from 28T to 44T ring sizes;
- +- 600g (full set with a 32T chainring);
- with support for all major drivetrain system configurations/ bottom brackets;
