Technical FAQ: Greasing Ultra-Torque cranks

Should I grease my Campy Ultra-torque spindle?

Don't miss a moment from Paris-Roubaix and Unbound Gravel, to the Giro d’Italia, Tour de France, Vuelta a España, and everything in between when you join Outside+.

Dear Lennard,
At the risk of re-opening the ‘greasing the Campagnolo BB spindle taper’ debate, do you recommend greasing the hirth joint teeth on the new Campagnolo Ultra-Torque cranks? The instructions are a bit vague on that topic.
-Ned

Dear Ned,
According to Campagnolo: “No grease at all. The instructions don’tspeak about it because it’s not useful to grease the teeth of the Ultra-Torque crankset.”
