Miche's new range of ground breaking track chainsets. Pistard 2.0 and Pistard AIR. Building on the many decades of success of the Miche Advanced track chainset, Miche's engineers set themselves the challenging task of improving this legendary track chainset.
By moving from the traditional square taper bottom bracket to the new Miche EvoMax integrated axle they were able to improve the stiffness of the chainset by over 25%, the chainset stiffness has been further enhanced with the new profile crank arms. This fundamental change in the chainset design had set Miche's Italian engineers two major challenges.
The new innovative design maintains the same chainline as the previous Miche Advanced chainset and sees only a small increase in the Q factor from 131mm to 138mm, one of the best in the industry for a integrated axle design.
The new design also maintains full backwards compatibility with the previous range of Advanced Track chainrings, Miche have also expanded the range of chainring teeth available, from 48 to 58T
The AIR model has its aesthetics, aerodynamic profile and strength enhanced with its new innovative design. The Pistard 2.0 model offers the choice of two different crank arm finishes, black and silver.
