Cochrane, Canada – April 22, 2021 – Canadian sports technology company, 4iiii Innovations Inc., has initiated a Crank Buyback Program to offer cyclists a way to reCYCLE cranks and help provide more opportunities to underprivileged youth.
Riders can send in Left Side Shimano crank arms to receive up to $45 cash or the option of donating the money to an amazing charitable organization.
Those in the market for a power meter upgrade now get even more value from the WorldTour proven 4iiii Powermeter by sending back their existing crank for cash. With cranks being one of the major component shortages the cycling industry is facing, this is an excellent opportunity for riders to upgrade technology and help someone else in the process.
Returned cranks are cleaned, inspected and rigorously tested before having a brand new 4iiii Powermeter installed and offered as 4iiii Ride Ready reCYCLED Powermeters.
“We’re very excited to introduce this new initiative,” says 4iiii President Phil White. “Everyone benefits from a circular economy where we reduce waste, reuse products and preserve resources in an effort to protect our environment.”
The program extends across North America initially with future plans for a global rollout alongside international partners.
