Truvativ Elita

I'm installing an Elita, and not clear on the crank bolt torque spec. The info sheet says for an ISIS drive BB you need 32 to 35 ft pounds. But mine has the GPX drive, a two piece system with a hollow pipe swaged to teh crank arm, and needing to bolt on the left-side arm. The splines look generally like ISIS, but I thought ISIS was a type of three-piece system.

So I'm not sure if that number is applicable to my part.

these cranksets are a pain to install.
You'll most likely want a cheater bar and leather gloves if you like to keep the skin on your hands.

48-52 nm. once the arm bottoms out and captures the non drive bearing the torque will ramp up quickly
