Chorus 11 Ultra-Torque Carbon Crankset - EPS Compatible 175mm, 52/36

We know you're thinking it -- the Campagnolo Chorus 11 Speed EPS Compatible Crankset looks an awful lot like its Record sibling. After all, it utilizes the same Ultra-Torque spindle assembly for an astoundingly stiff interface, the chainrings are nearly identical, and the unidirectional carbon fiber crank arms share the same graceful shape. The difference is in the details, however, and the Chorus forgoes the Record's hollow crank arms in favor of solid arms. The result is that they're about 90 grams heavier than the Record crankset, but are no less drool-worthy. Like Campy's Record cranks, you get the same hard-anodized aluminum chainrings, which utilize Campagnolo's XPSS. That's an acronym for eXtreme Performance Shifting System, and despite its energy-drink-inspired name, it denotes the fact that there's eight pick up points for up shifts, and two drop points for downshifts. This means that you'll experience nothing but super-fast shifts, even when you're putting down full power. They're held in place with alloy fixing bolts, and they thread into the inner-chainring. And, just like with the Record crankset, this eliminates the need for troublesome backings. Campagnolo's Ultra Torque spindle arrangement has become widely popular for its ease of use and stiff interface. The bottom bracket bearings are pressed directly onto the spindle, which makes installation a breeze once you've installed the Ultra Torque bottom bracket cups. And the massive aluminum spindle has also been thoughtfully relieved of any excess material in order to bring the weight to a minimum without compromising its strength. Speaking of which, this version of the Chorus crankset shaves a hair under 20 grams from its predecessor, without giving up one iota of the strength and stiffness that's made it a favorite for both competitive racers and Campy-ideologues alike. The Campagnolo Chorus 11 Ultra-Torque EPS Compatible Carbon Crankset is available in one color. The crank arms come in either a...

XTR Dyna-Sys FC-M980 Trail Crankset - Double 175mm, 38x26T

A standard 64/104mm BCD allows the XTR Dyna-Sys FC-M980 Trail Crankset to run double 'rings over the 88mm BCD, single-specific found on the Race version. It is 10-speed specific, and it's different than an XTR 970 crank in a number of ways. First, it's lighter. Secondly, the left-side crankarm uses pinch bolts to fix it to the splined Hollowtech II spindle. Gone is the threaded preload collar from the XTR 970 crank. The pinch bolt design separates the functions for bearing preload and securing the crank. On the other hand, like the last generation XTR cranks, the FC-M980 use Shimano's Hollowtech II cold forging process. This produces a crankarm assembly that's lighter and stronger than traditional solid forgings. Moving on, the chainrings are shaped according to Shimano's HG-X tooth profile design. What this means is that shifting is optimized to work with the HG-X 10-speed XTR chain. One thing that's worth noting, in this double ring configuration, it's necessary to use the double-specific XTR front derailleur as the cage size and shape are optimized for this application. The Shimano's Double XTR Dyna-Sys FC-M980 Trail Crankset comes in four crankarm lengths -- 165, 170, 175, and 180mm. It has 38/26t or 30/42t chainring configuration, and includes an XTR Hollowtech II Bottom Bracket.

105 FC-5800 11-Speed Crankset Black, 175mm, 52/36

In the case of the Shimano 105 FC-5800 11-speed Crankset, the term "trickle-down" should more aptly be replaced by "deluge-down." The new 105 crank employs so much of the technology and performance of its more expensive Ultegra and Dura-Ace siblings that it begins to look a bit like cannibalism, and that's a great thing for you if you don't want to drop major coin on a crankset, but still want great stuff. Replacing the 5700-series family of 105 parts, the new 5800 group steps up to 11 speeds, and its performance is now on-par with that of Dura-Ace from only a few seasons ago. That's pretty remarkable. So how does the 5800-series crank do it? Most notable to the eye is the adoption of Shimano's new 4-bolt spider and chainring configuration. Not only does the new design simultaneously lighten and stiffen the crank, it means the 105 crank now comes with only one bolt-circle diameter (or BCD) measurement -- as on Ultegra and Dura-Ace. Now you can have its chainrings swapped out between the available 53/39-, 52/36-, or 50/34-tooth combinations without needing new crankarms. Also along with Ultegra and Dura-Ace, the 105 chainrings are now constructed using carbide elements that lighten them while also boosting their rigidity for greater power transfer, durability, and more precise shifting. The Shimano 105 FC-5800 11-Speed Crankset is available only in the color Black. It comes with arm lengths of 170, 172. 5, or 175 millimeters and with 53/39-, 52/36-, or 50/34-tooth chainring combinations. A bottle bracket is not included.

Next SL Crankset Black, 30t/175mm

Starting with the Next LP's carbon inlay and evolving over the years into the full-carbon SL, Race Face has a rich history of incorporating the black weave into its crankarms. The latest and greatest Next SL uses hollow carbon arms and a direct-mount ring to boast a sub one-pound (28t direct mount) weight. Race Face uses carbon and aluminum sourced from the United States and manufacturing resources in its Canadian facility to produce industry-leading quality. The arms are hollow, with no internal structure left over from the manufacturing process. This means the lowest weight possible, and incredible strength. But that's only one aspect to these cranks that makes them Race Face's top offering. A direct-mount chainring is not a new concept, but Race Face's Cinch execution ends up making the Next SL one of the most versatile cranksets available. For easy maintenance, the proprietary Cinch spline uses a standard Park BBT-22 bottom bracket tool for installation. The splined design eliminates the weakness of four-bolt interfaces, and its 7075-T6, 4mm-thick, aerospace-grade aluminum transfers pedal loads without flexing. Race Face provides replacement rings in sizes 26 through 36t, but the cranks are only available with 28 through 34t options. The chainrings work with 9-, 10-, and 11-speed drivetrains, and the rings feature the narrow/wide profile. This design helps to retain the chain by preventing jump, which is due to a tighter interface between inner and outer links. Now there's no need for heavy guides, and with the large-ratio spread of modern cassettes, you can kiss redundant double- and triple-cranksets goodbye. The Race Face Next SL Crankset has a raw carbon finish and comes in 28t/175mm, 30t/175mm, 32t/175mm, and 34t/175mm configurations.

XT Dyna-Sys FC-M785 Double Crankset Black, 175mm/24-38

With 10-speed cassettes having 36 tooth big cogs, the door was opened for re-evaluation of the standard triple crankset. For many riders, some of the available gear options would be redundant and unnecessary with a 3x10 setup, not to mention some gears at the bottom or top of the range would generally be unused. And since we all quest for simplicity and lightness, 2x10 drivetrains make a lot of sense. Like their XTR Trail and Race groupsets, Shimano XT cranksets get different gearing options. While their 3x10 option is intended for trail riders, this Shimano XT 2x10 Hollowtech II Crankset FC-785 is perfect for riders that prefer to pedal hard over slowing down to smell the flowers. Shimano's 2x10 chainring set delivers faster, easier shifts. The reason why is the elimination of the ambidextrous middle chainring. The little ring is designed exclusively to allow the chain to go to the big and vice-versa. Neither has to do double duty. And with a Shimano asymmetric chain, the system is optimized throughout. The Hollowtech II arms have been reshaped with an asymmetric design that's different yet evokes the sophistication of XTR. The right arm is pressed together with the hollow 24mm spindle at the factory, and the splined left crankarm mates to the spindle during installation and is secured with perhaps Shimano's best detail -- two pinch bolts to secure the arm once the bearing preload is dialed in perfectly. In our experience, it's a superior design in terms of installation, performance, and durability. The Shimano XT 2x10 Hollowtech II Crankset FC-785 is Black and has a 104/64mm bolt circle diameter. You'll choose between 40/28t or 38/26t gearing options. The big ring is ramped and pinned for easier shifting. It's available in 170-180mm lengths in 5mm increments, and the bottom bracket is included.

X0 2.2 BB30 10-Speed Crankset Red, 175mm, 36/22

If nothing else, BB30 cranks like this Truvativ X0 BB30 2. 2 10-Speed Crankset will allow more heel and ankle clearance as we pedal, potentially eliminating the scraping between shoe and crankarm that some of us have grown accustomed to with outboard bearing crank designs of late. If this sounds familiar, and if the inside of your shoes look like they've been through the grinder, then BB30 is right for you. The added bonus is that it offers performance advantages and weight savings at the same time. This X0 2. 2 10-Speed Crankset uses carbon fiber like the top shelf XX crank, but there are a few differences. Unlike the XX crank, there's no alloy spine connecting the threaded pedal insert and the crank/spindle connection. SRAM engineers figured out a way to eliminate it, instead using a stiff structural foam core inside the composite skin. Don't think for a second that it's weaker; part of SRAM's goal for XO was to make it burly enough to handle the rigors of all-mountain riding. Another difference is that this XO crankset uses an aluminum spider where the XX spider is an integral part of the carbon crankarm assembly. While it's a few grams heavier, the XO system allows you to remove the spider if you want to change from two to three rings or vice versa. As is, this 2x10 setup has a bolt circle diameter of 80/120mm. Of course, it's an exclusive measurement, but for the chainring tooth combinations SRAM wanted to offer, it optimizes the stiffness of the rings. And stiffer chainrings mean quicker, more precise shifts. Not only did they design their own optimized bolt circle diameters, but they re-engineered the shift ramps, pins, and cut outs on the outer chainring. On most chainrings these days, there are two sets of ramps and two drop points where the chain can get lifted or dropped quickly and under pressure. This means that twice each pedal revolution you'll hit these spots, so the shifting can be iffy if you shift at any other time. You've probably experienced ...

X1 1400 GXP Crankset Black, 175mm

It's safe to say that SRAM's 1x11 drivetrain systems have swept through the mountain bike world. The superiority of the configuration is evident from any angle, and now, with the new X1 group slotting in below the top-line XX1 and next-best X01, the system is available at a friendlier price point. Now enter the SRAM X1 1400 GXP Crankset, to keep it all turning. The X1 crankset comes in several versions, including the value-oriented 1000 and the mid-range 1200, but the 1400 is the best there is. It's lighter than the others, thanks to hollow-forged crank arms, but it doesn't lose any stiffness to its solid-armed sisters. Mated to a forged aluminum spider, in fact, the X1 is stiffer than most cranks on the market, even far more expensive competitors. Like the XX1 and X01 cranksets, the X1's X-SYNC chainrings -- available in size from 30 to 38 teeth -- feature a special alternating-offset tooth profile that "locks" the chain onto the ring to prevent dropping, even over the most abusive and bumpy terrain. The SRAM X1 1400 GXP Crankset is available in two arm lengths -- 170mm and 175mm -- and in two colors: Red and Black. It comes with a 32-tooth chainring and no bottom bracket.

X9 BB30 2.2 Crankset Black/Grey, 175mm, 36/22

SRAM X9 has always been a rough and tumble kind of group, as at home on a blue collar race bike as it is on an all-mountain steed destined for a two week adventure in the Rockies. With this Truvativ X9 BB30 2. 2 10-Speed Crankset w/Bottom Bracket, X9 isn't left on the porch with regards to new technology either. The 30mm alloy spindle makes this crankset one stiff beast, and with the bearings housed inside the BB30 bottom bracket shell, you'll benefit from more heel and ankle clearance as well. This X9 2. 2 10-Speed Crankset benefits from the development for XX, yet it delivers 2x10 performance and simplicity at a significantly lower cost. Truvativ uses a hollow forging process to make sure that the X9 crank meets expected performance/value criteria. Sure, their high end carbon fiber cranks are a few grams lighter, but their higher cost puts them off the mark in comparison to this one. The hollow 7075 aluminum arms are ideal from a durability standpoint. You can stomp on the pedals as hard as you like and you know that not only will they resist deflection, but they'll be tough as nails. And if you ride in rough terrain, that's a nice thing to know when you tag the crank arm on a boulder. Fitted to the aluminum spider are Truvativ's CNC machined 7075 T6 aluminum chainrings which include a highly refined set of pins and ramps to provide smooth shifting under power. A double-specific 80/120mm bolt circle diameter allows the four hole chainrings to be stiffer for more precise shifting, and trick dual-sided 5mm/6mm alloy chainring bolts make for easy work when it's time for replacement or service. The Truvativ X9 BB30 2. 2 10-Speed Crankset w/Bottom Bracket is Black with Grey accents and has a 175mm crankarm length. It's offered with either 26/39t or 28/42t chainring combinations.

Dura-Ace FC-9000 11-Speed Crankset One Color, 175mm 50x34

11-speeds? Absolutely. Lighter weight? You got it. The marriage between a standard and compact crankset? Amen. The Shimano Dura-Ace FC-9000 11-Speed Crankset has once again revolutionized the market through common sense design that, for one reason or another, no one else has attempted. Finally, we can run either compact or standard rings on one spider, and even better, FC-9000 hasn't compromised a thing. In fact, it's lighter, just as stiff, and sleeker than 7900. Beauty and intelligence -- the total package. Easily, Dura-Ace 9000's most striking and recognizable feature is the FC-9000 crankset -- and this is for good reason. On the surface, the FC-9000 is a complete departure from the traditional aesthetics of Dura-Ace. Gone are the days of the five-arm spider, and the necessity for a separate compact crankset has also fallen by the wayside. Instead, 9000 features a shift to a new four-arm spider design. This occured for many reasons, but most notably, it's because the four-arm spider matches rigidity with 7900 while shaving around 52 grams. However, 9000 has more than meets the eye. Like 7900, you'll find the continuation of Shimano's Hollowtech II construction. Over the past few iterations of Dura-Ace, this manufacturing methodology has played an integral role in attaining weight reduction without sacrificing Dura-Ace's superior stiffness. It's this balance of Shimano practicing tried-and-true forging methods, while still treading into unknown waters, that makes Dura-Ace more of a continuation than an innovation. We mean this in the best possible way. Shimano has learned what works, and over the years, has continually added to, and improved, the ideology of Dura-Ace. Hollowtech II and Hollowglide are prime examples of this. Strategic placement of hollow aluminum throughout the crankset and chainrings allows more structural material to be used, and when coupled with Shimano's integrated bottom bracket, creates an unrivaled weight-to-stiffness ratio. The four-ar...

Super Record 11 Ultra-Torque Titanium Crankset One Color, 175mm 36/52

While Campagnolo's Super Record components signify their best efforts, they just couldn't leave well enough alone. This Super Record 11 Ultra-Torque Ti Carbon Crankset replaces the steel crank spindle normally used, with a titanium version that is 25% lighter and just as strong. The bolt for the Hirth joint to fasten the two halves together is also titanium to save another few grams. It's beautiful and strong, and now it's even lighter. This quest for lightness goes farther than the spindle. They've removed the chainring nut from the chainring fixing equation. The rings are held to the crankset by five alloy bolts that go through the big ring and thread directly into the small chain ring -- easier and lighter.Let your eyes linger on the chainrings. Look closely at the shifting pins. There, you'll find the first sign that the rings have been re-engineered for faster shifting. Campagnolo calls this their XPSS, eXtreme Performance Shifting System. There are now eight dedicated sectors for upshifting, with ramps and pins working in conjunction with a new tooth profile. But up is only half the story. They've also optimized two new down-shifting sectors, with the new tooth profile working with ramps on the way down as well. The Campagnolo Super Record 11 Ultra-Torque Ti Carbon Crankset has unidirectional Carbon-Fiber crankarms with Dark Grey anodized chainrings and Black bolts. The two halves of the thru-axle are connected by a reverse-threaded titanium bolt. Campagnolo ceramic CULT (Ceramic Ultimate Level Technology) bearings are installed on both arms. The available chain ring options are a standard (135mm bolt circle diameter) with 53/39 rings or a compact (110mm bcd) with 50/34 rings. Crankarm lengths are 170, 172. 5, and 175mm.

X1 1000 BB30 Crankset Black, 175mm

It's no secret that SRAM's revolutionary 1x11 drivetrain platform has risen to dominance in the world of mountain bikes. While it originally debuted at the top-end of the market, SRAM has thankfully trickled down 1x11 technology into more wallet-friendly groups, notably the X1 groupset. The SRAM X1 1000 BB30 crank you see here goes to show that the company is as dedicated to the everyday rider and weekend warrior as it is to the pros. The X1 crankset comes in several versions, including the top-notch 1400 and the midrange 1200, but the 1000 is where you get the best bang for your buck. It doesn't get the hollow-forged arms of the 1400, and it uses a slightly heavier 6000-series aluminum for its arm material than the 7000-series used in the 1200, but all told, the 1000 crank gives up only 50 grams of weight compared to the lightest 1400. Mated to a forged aluminum spider, in fact, the X1 1000 is stiffer than most cranks on the market, even far more expensive competitors. Like the XX1 and X01 cranksets, the X1's X-SYNC chainrings -- available in size from 30 to 38 teeth -- feature a special alternating-offset tooth profile that "locks" the chain onto the ring to prevent dropping, even over the most abusive and bumpy terrain. The SRAM X1 1000 BB30 Crankset is available in two arm lengths -- 170mm and 175mm -- and in the color Black. It is for use with BB30 or PF30 bottom bracket platforms only, not standard threaded bottom brackets, and it comes with a 32-tooth chainring.
