Shimano Ultegra crankset FC-6800 - innovative 4-arm-design
The Shimano 11-speed crankset Ultegra FC-6800 features the innovative 4-arm design, in which numerous 2x gradations can be mounted on a uniform 110 mm bolt circle diameter. This structure provides more stiffness and optimised power transmission at the same time. The FC-6800 crank has hollow forged aluminium arms (Hollowtech) and a hollow outer chainring (Hollowglide) to save weight. Of course, the proven Hollowtech II technology with 24 mm axle is used, which stands for an optimal ratio of strength and weight.

A lightweight crankset not only reduces the bike's weight, but decreases rotating mass to aid in acceleration. The challenge is to reduce the weight of the crank without reducing its strength and rigidity. Shimano's advanced forging technology has solved the problem through the Hollowtech crank. Just like high quality frame tubing, a hollow crank arm can provide amazing strength and rigidity at very light weight.
What matters is the overall balance of the crankset. With regard to the entire crankset, an optimum ratio between the strength of the crank arms, the stiffness of the axle, the bearing position and other features is very important. During the development of the crankset, the overall balance of all individual elements was carefully considered in order to ensure maximum stability.
Outer bearing: On most 68 mm bottom bracket housings, the Hollowtech II 24 mm axle can be mounted outside the frame for better weight distribution and stability.
High-quality precision seals: The Hollowtech II set also features high quality precision seals in the bearing area to extend durability and maintain excellent rotation efficiency over time.
The axle and the 24 mm diameter bearings ensure optimum balance of the crankset and optimum transmission of power to the bicycle.
Hollow outer chainring: The extremely stiff hollow structure reduces the weight while maintaining the same strength. Better power transmission and faster, more precise front shifts (not with 46 tooth).
