Socket Drive Thunderbolts & Killington Sprocket
Posted by Francis on Thursday, February 7th, 2013
Our Socket Drive interface system has been in use on our Flatware cranks since their inception, and it was only a matter of time before the system was adapted into our Thunderbolt cranks. The time has come.
In a nutshell, the Socket Drive™ system is a 9 sided interface which eliminates the need for a sprocket bolt. The sprocket itself is machined so there is no need for a sprocket insert of any kind. The two work great together. The interface is solid and reliable, so we are now offer the Killington sprocket to match.

Here’s another bike we have on display in the Full Factory booth at Interbike. It’s called The Waltz and it’s equipped with the Flatware products that’s currently available, along with some samples and prototypes that are in the works.
