The traditional Campagnolo crankset with its spindle (tapered or splined) and cups bottom bracket that accepted pressed-on right and left cranks was replaced in 2008 with the Ultra-Torque system. With the Ultra-Torque system both crank arms are permanently attached to half of the spindle, which is joined at the center with what is known as a "Hirth Joint". Each hollow spindle half (semi-axle) has tapered teeth that mesh together and held by a center bolt.

In 2011 Campagnolo introduced an improvement on the Ultra-Torque system. The Hirth Joint was eliminated and now a single hollow spindle is permanently attacked to the drive crank. The Power-Torque system uses a steel spindle and is found in Campagnolo's mid-range cranksets. The Ultra-Torque introduced in 2013, uses a heat-treated aluminum spindle.

Campagnolo CX-11 Power-Torque crankset, 172.5mm x 34-50. New $200.00

Part# 60183

While this crankset is designed for cyclo-cross, its cross-specific specs make it a terrific crankset for road riding, especially in places with bad weather or muddy roads. The rings are labelled "C.A.R.T" - Cyclocross Advanced Racing Technology. The pins and ramps are said to especially enable good shifts under bad conditions.

This crankset is made for 11-speed (rear cogset) systems.

The arms are aluminum and have light alloy chainring fixing bolts. Chainring BCD is Campagnolo's proprietary 110mm.

Photographs below are of a 175mm crankset.
