USA magazine Bike Mag put Race Face's senior design engineer Chris Heynen under the spot light and ask him about the new Atlas crankset

Race Face cranks out a hell of a lot of productÒeverything from kneepads and hoodies to handlebars and bottom brackets. Perhaps no product line, however, personifies the company's vibe like AtlasÒa line of no-nonsense components born and bred on the North Shore.

Race Face recently released their second generation Atlas cranks and a set (in their new "raw" finish) made its way here. Before I bolted them on, I thought it worthwhile to get the lowdown on the re-design. What was RaceFace trying to achieve? Why mess with the original formula in the first place? Chris Heynen, has a good bead on those kinds of questions. As Race Face's Senior Design Engineer and Testing Manager, he plays a lead role in bringing new products into beingÒfrom raw idea, to prototyping, testing, marketing and final production. If you've ridden an aluminum Raceface product in the past eight years, chances are you've touched something Heynen has had a hand in making.

Heynen joined the Vancouver-based company eight years ago. Heynen's resume is broad and includes stints working on everything from rescue submarines to fuel cells. Bikes, however, have always been Heynen's passion. As Heynen puts it, "I pretty much have the job I always dreamed of."
