Absolute Black Race Face Oval Cinch Boost Direct Mount Traction Chainring Absolute Black Race Face Oval Cinch Boost Direct Mount Traction Chainring
Absolute Black is one of the leaders in the oval ring market because it leaves no stone--or crank, in this case--unturned. The Race Face Oval Cinch Boost Direct Mount Traction Chainring's very specialized application proves this assertion: its offset and direct-mount design work with a Cinch crank mounted on a Boost frame. This makes installation comically easy and lets you get straight to the chainring's raison d'etre, which is reducing the dead spot in your pedal stroke to reanimate lost watts. By reducing that dead spot, Oval Traction Chainrings boost traction by essentially spreading the power input load more evenly across the pedal stroke. Keeping power constant lets your tire exert a steady force on the trail, so there are fewer instances of slipping out in wet or mucky conditions. The ring shape also spreads the work your body is doing more evenly across the different muscle groups involved, which means less strain on your biological machine, too.

Absolute Black SRAM Oval Direct Mount Traction Chainring Absolute Black SRAM Oval Direct Mount Traction Chainring
Round chainrings are standard because, well, they're standard, but they don't actually match the changing power output of your legs through a pedal stroke. Absolute Black's SRAM Oval Direct Mount Traction Chainring's oblong shape makes pedaling easier in hard spots and steadier in easy spots, so you can keep a constant and smooth cadence without having to deal with dead up-strokes and leg-crushing down-strokes. This makes it easier to nail down the highly efficient circular pedaling motion that's we're all after, and improves traction by eliminating the wheel slip that happens during hard down-strokes on loose terrain. If you're going to make a killer chainring, you might as well pull out all the stops, so Absolute Black also machined this aluminum-alloy beauty with a narrow-wide tooth profile and 3D design that improves chain retention, sheds mud, and reduces wear and noise. It also engineered the Oval to mount directly to almost all SRAM cranksets, so you can eliminate the extra weight of a spider, which will be a boon to your quads when you're hammering up steep dirt and across fast sections of rolling singletrack. Run the 0mm offset models with a short spindle BB30 cranks and the 6mm offset with the standard BB30 spindle. The easiest way to identify which spindle you have is by checking the width of the spacer between the chainring and the bottom bracket shell. the short spindle has a 9mm spacer while the long or standard spindle has a 15mm spacer.

Campagnolo Chorus 11 4-Arm Crankset Campagnolo Chorus 11 4-Arm Crankset
Completely redesigned for the release of Campy's new mechanical groupsets, the Campagnolo Chorus 11 4-Arm Crankset showcases a number of significant improvements. The new crank is visually striking, but the changes weren't intended to be cosmetic alone. The new crank's 4-arm bolt pattern allows for the installation of any of Campagnolo's chainring combinations -- 50/34, 52/36, or 53/39 -- without the need to swap out the entire crank, which was necessary with the old design. Along the way, Campagnolo shaved weight while boosting rigidity, placing the new Chorus 11 crankset on a level of stiffness that eclipses even the stiffest of Campy's last-generation cranks. The Campagnolo Chorus 11 4-Arm Crankset is available in 170mm, 172. 5mm, and 175mm crankarm lengths, and with 50/34-, 52/36-, or 53/39-tooth chainring combinations.

Campagnolo Record 11 4-Arm Crankset Campagnolo Record 11 4-Arm Crankset
If we had to choose our favorite piece from Campagnolo's new Record groupset -- and the biggest key to its historical success -- we wouldn't go for the obvious, high-profile shift levers or derailleurs. Instead, we'd point at the radically redesigned Record 11 4-Arm Crankset. This is because, though there are huge changes to its external design, Campagnolo still builds the crankset's internals around the virtually perfect USB (Ultra Smooth Bearings) technology. USB uses the same ceramic ball bearings as Super Record crankset's CULT bearings, only sacrificing smoothness and durability by not including Super Record's Cronitect races. Of course, for us mere mortals, the minute difference in longevity and friction are nearly impossible to identify. If every possible watt over the course of a 21 day grand tour matters, then you may prefer Super Record; otherwise, USB's 50% gain in efficiency over Chorus's steel bearings will likely be more than fast enough. Externally, the big, obvious changes are in the crank arms and chainrings. The crank arms lost a longtime comrade when their number fell to four, which nets a claimed 12% gain in torsional stiffness. They also lost a bit of metal, replacing it with lighter, stiffer carbon that extends all the way to the big ring. Like their predecessors, the new Record crank arms are strategically hollowed in areas that don't need the extra reinforcement in order to reduce weight compared to the new Chorus model, which is only hollow on the non-drive side. Instead of sharing one set of five chain ring coupling holes, both rings now get the benefit of their own set. This effectively standardizes the crankset's bolt circle diameter and lets you switch from compact to standard rings without swapping the entire unit. The full-size rings have eight pins with corresponding up- and downshift zones for immediate shifting engagement, while the semi-compact and compact rings have four pins. All three options are also more aerodynamic, ...

Campagnolo Super Record 11 4-Arm Crankset Campagnolo Super Record 11 4-Arm Crankset
Life is short, and you only get one shot at it, so you shouldn't waste time riding outdated, sticky, or heavy cranksets. Enter the Campagnolo Super Record 11 4-Arm Crankset, a redesigned legend that's coming back even lighter, stronger, and sleeker than past iterations. A few major changes set the new Super Record apart from its predecessor. Most obviously, the number of arms was reduced from five to four, which Campagnolo claims reduces weight while increasing torsional stiffness up to 12%. Certain areas of the arms have also seen metal swapped out in favor of carbon, and Campy also hollowed out the new arms as much as possible to reduce weight. The Super Record isn't totally redesigned, though--why would it be' The light, powerful, and super-simple Ultra Torque spindle is just as good as ever, and the titanium spindle and bolt save 40g over the steel used in the regular Record. Even better, Campagnolo's legendary CULT ceramic bearings and Cronitect races are so smooth that Campy claims a 3. 5 watt gain per pedal stroke.

Easton EC90 SL Crankset Easton EC90 SL Crankset
With the recent merger of Easton and Race Face, the former was able to bring the latter's future-proof Cinch crankset technology from mountain bikes to road, cyclocross, and gravel. We built the direct-mount, one-by Easton EC90 SL Crankset primarily for 'cross and gravel, but the crank arms' modularity means it can adapt to the spider-life of a double as needed. That modularity is the key to the crankset's future-proof status. Rather than being adrift in an ever-expanding sea of proprietary standards and slightly tweaked dimensions, the self-sponsored cyclist can invest once in the Cinch-equipped EC90 SL crank system with confidence that, regardless of what the future holds, the chassis will be compatible. The crank arms themselves are Easton's EC90 SL carbon fiber, a material that's already been proven from cockpit components to the soles of some of cycling's most popular race shoes. The included rings say "Easton," but they feature a narrow/wide tooth profile similar to the one-by standouts from Race Face, so the chainring clears debris caked-on from peanut-butter mud pits and maintains chain retention across washboard and over-sized gravel.

FSA Gossamer Pro 386EVO ABS Adventure Crankset FSA Gossamer Pro 386EVO ABS Adventure Crankset
For years, we've been jealous of the European cycling-scape. Cobblestones, Flemish hellingen, windy Dutch coastal roads--those are where cycling began. (Okay, maybe not the Dutch coastal wind.) The advent of gravel bikes has given us a different attitude, though, and FSA's Gossamer Pro 386EVO ABS Adventure Crankset tailors gearing to exploring the unique cycling gems on this side of the pond: dirt roads, graded gravel, and even light singletrack. Our local b-roads may not have the historical significance of the Carrefour de l'Arbre, but we don't care. Comparing cycling history (hell, any history) across the pond will always be a losing affair for we Yanks, so let the Euros have their tradition, their past, and their sepia photographs--we'll take the fun of gravel touring in the present moment any day. The Gossamer's Adventure model is eager for those moments, too. FSA kits it with a 48/32t gear combination that's well-suited to the style of riding that gravel bikes and touring setups have inspired: the long haul across Kansas gravel, the slow grind through a PNW forest, the bike path that lets out onto a singletrack trail network. Though its gearing recommends it for gravel riding, the crank has the same cold-forged 6061 alloy crankarms CNC-machined 7075 chainrings as its road-specific counterpart. The Gossamer Pro Compact has a 110mm bolt circle. The rings attach to the five-arm alloy spider via T-30 Torx internal wrenching alloy fasteners. Though more difficult to produce, the Torx interface ensures strip-free, proper torquing of the hardware. A tight fit and snug fasteners means less power-robbing flex and decreased chance for strange creaking noises to develop, so you'll spend more time enjoying the soft hum of a well-tuned drivetrain and the ambient sounds of whatever bucolic landscape you find yourself in. As with most of FSA's cranksets, the Gossamer Pro is built to the 386EVO standard, whose modularity makes it every frame's best friend. It's got the dim...

Osymetric O-14 4 Arm Chainring 110mm BCD Osymetric O-14 4 Arm Chainring 110mm BCD
With the introduction of testing power and measuring exact watts created in various phases of the pedal stroke, cyclists have been looking for ways to reap every watt possible out of every degree. Osymetric has the latest theory in how to transfer the most power from your legs to the drivetrain with its dual-cam-designed chainrings. Essentially, even though cyclists are taught to "round out" their pedal strokes, very few actually are able to fully execute it well. And while an ovalized ring maximizes power for part of the stroke, the dual-cam more effectively minimizes the dead spot in the pedal stroke. The Osymetric chainring is the brainchild of French engineer Jean-Louis Talo. The radically-shaped chainrings use a dual-cam design, with each cam lobe corresponding to the most powerful part of the pedal stroke: the downstroke. The design increases the gear inches of the chainring at the point where you're able to apply the most force, but as you transition to your least powerful part of the stroke, or dead spot, the chainring reduces in size to speed you back into the power part of the stroke. For instance, an Osymetric 52-tooth chainring would be similar to a 55-tooth in the largest portion of the cam, then gradually reducing to a 49-tooth over the dead spot. This translates to a claimed 3% increase in speed. As a note, to install the chainrings, you'll need to make adjustments to the derailleur height and width with the included screw. And you'll also need to spend time fine tuning the rear derailleur. The first ride may seem a bit awkward, but after a few times out you'll feel more power in your stroke and be less aware of any inconsistencies in chainring shape. The O-14 is for the new four-arm Shimano Dura-Ace and Ultegra cranksets. They are available as small and large chainrings in 38t, 42t, 50t, 52t, and 54t.

Osymetric O-14 5-Arm Chainring 130mm BCD Osymetric O-14 5-Arm Chainring 130mm BCD
One of the key ways to maximize power to the drivetrain is to learn to pedal efficiently, or to not pedal in "squares." The most powerful pedal strokes have equal pressure applied to the pedals throughout the entire 360 degrees. Osymetric recognized that the perfect pedal stroke is difficult for even the most skilled professional to perform, so its dual cam chainrings were designed to address the deficiencies in pedal stroke. The first thing you'll notice about the chainring is that it has an odd shape. The Osymetric chainring is the brainchild of French engineer Jean-Louis Talo. The chainrings use a dual-cam design, with each cam lobe corresponding to the most powerful part of the pedal stroke: the downstroke. This gives it the unmistakable square/oblong shape. The design increases the gear inches of the chainring at the point where you're able to apply the most force, but as you transition to your least powerful part of the stroke, or dead spot, the chainring reduces in size to speed you back into the power part of the stroke. This is different from an ovalized chainring that merely adds two teeth to maximize stroke in the power phase. An Osymetric 52-tooth chainring would be similar to a 55-tooth in the largest portion of the cam, then gradually reducing to a 49-tooth over the dead spot. To install the chainrings, you'll need to make adjustments to the derailleur height and width, with the included screw. And you'll also need to spend time fine tuning the rear derailleur. The first ride may seem a bit awkward, but after a few times out you'll feel more power in your stroke and be less aware of any inconsistencies in chainring shape.

PowerTap C1 Chainrings with Sensor PowerTap C1 Chainrings with Sensor
Trying to decide which type of power meter is right for you demands considerable time and energy. Once you figure out what you want and how much you're willing to pay, you have to delve into pages of proprietary terms and technology to figure out which products actually match that description. If you're looking for dual-sided power metrics and are running a five-bolt 110mm BCD crankset right now, consider the PowerTap C1 Chainrings with Sensor. They won't work with every crankset available, but offer a relatively wallet-friendly, dependable way to measure your watts if you have a compatible crankset already. For this price, getting precise, individual left- and right-side measurements is asking a lot. However, the C1 system does split your stroke in half to give its best calculation of each side's power, using built-in motion sensors to track cadence and power from within the unit. As you're coasting through a steep descent, don't worry about having to look down at your head unit and back-pedal; the system zeroes on its own as soon as you stop pedaling so that you can focus on the steep and winding road ahead. Compatible with Bluetooth SMART and ANT+, the C1 gets along with just about every major computer on the market too, so you won't have to swap to a different head unit to see data while you ride.

If you're looking to upgrade to a modular crankset without burning through your entire upgrade budget for the season, you can't do much better than Race Face's new Aeffect EXI Crank Arms. Occupying a notably more accessible price point than its pricier siblings, the Aeffect makes modularity available for your trail, XC, or enduro frame without requiring you to empty your wallet to afford it. Built dependably with a forged, 6066 aluminum construction, the Aeffect may not boast the same bombproof self-assuredness of its burlier siblings, but it still has a commendable strength-to-weight ratio for aggressive trail, XC and all-mountain/enduro riding. Just like its pricier siblings, the Aeffect boasts compatibility with a range of bottom bracket standards, but unlike them, it's delivered with a slimmer 24mm spindle. Swapping between chainring standards is quick and user-friendly with the design, which is compatible with 10 or 11-speed drivetrains, and most importantly, it affords you the option to run a direct-mount, one-by chainring or use a spider to mount double or triple chainrings if you prefer. Quiet and consistent, the Aeffect EXI shows, unsurprisingly, that Race Face has its tech and construction dialed on modular cranksets, and that a more affordable option doesn't have to mean a sacrifice on either account.

Race Face Atlas Cinch Crank Arms Race Face Atlas Cinch Crank Arms
We're not surprised that this was the year for Race Face to bring the steadfast Atlas line into the modular realm, and we're happy to see the time come. Stiffening the already burly model even further with a new forged construction, Race Face ensures the Atlas Cinch Crank Arms now provide DH, trail, and enduro riders with the option to run direct-mount single rings, double chainrings with a spider, or switch between the two. Though the Cinch isn't a new concept for Race Face--which previously released versions of it with the Next SL, SixC and Turbine cranksets--the Atlas fills the modular crankset void for the pedal mashing, crank-shattering DH set. And according to Race Face, it does so while boasting a 12% increase in stiffness compared to the Turbine. That increase in stiffness comes courtesy of the 3D forged back pocket design of the cranks, which laterally reinforces the crank arms while retaining their hardy silhouette. Much like what happened during your best friend's pivotal summer vacation between middle and high school, the Atlas crank arms came back slimmer as well as stronger this year, with Race Face shaving 33g overall (when the crank arms are paired with a 24t chainring) over the previous version by switching from machined arms to forged. The latest Cinch system also makes swapping the Atlas between your enduro monster and nimble trail bike quick and manageable. It's got a new axle that allows you to switch the crankset between bikes with different bottom bracket spacing without having to empty your wallet on an entirely new crankset. Even with its newfound versatility, we still feel the Atlas Crank Arms' continued, and even improved, durability is worth a mention. Without weighing your rig down, the Atlas' beefy design gives you the reassurance that you can make the day as big as you want it to be without the fear that you'll snap your crankset in half when you come back to Earth.

Race Face Atlas Cinch Crank Arms - 83mm Spindle Race Face Atlas Cinch Crank Arms - 83mm Spindle
Once upon a time, having a crankset that was compatible with both direct-mount one-by rings and double or triple spiders would've sounded like far-off dream. However, Race Face's Cinch technology changed that in recent years, and this year, the company introduced the futuristic Atlas Cinch Crank Arms with 83mm Spindle, bringing its Cinch model to bikes with DH spacing for the first time. Mechanically abusive downhill riders can now take advantage of the added flexibility of modularity without having to sacrifice the pedal-mashing durability that made the workhorse Atlas crankset so popular among them before. In fact, with updates to its construction this year, the Atlas Cinch is now stiffer than ever, featuring a 3D-forged back pocket crank design for improved lateral stiffness and a new 7075 aluminum construction that's forged rather than machined, which affords it a claimed weight loss of 33g when paired with a 24T chainring. Despite these changes, the Atlas Cinch retains the rugged silhouette and impressive mud-shedding capabilities of its world-shrugging forebear. The Atlas Cinch's 83mm Spindle is designed specifically for use on DH rigs, while the regular model of the Atlas Cinch fills the modular void for hard-charging trail and enduro riders. Race Face's design allows you the option of directly mounting a one-by chainring or using a spider to attach a double or triple spread so you can set up your DH frame however you'd like but change your mind later if you need to. Race Face's aim is to maintain durability for a class of riders who expect to be able to blast through anything with no regard for whether their equipment can handle it or not.

Race Face Crank Boots Race Face Crank Boots
The Race Face Crank Boots offer an attractive and affordable solution to protecting your favorite cranks from the inevitable bashing and smashing incurred by riding through rough terrain and rock gardens. Crank Boots are especially useful with low-slung trail rigs, as the lower bottom bracket leaves less pedal and crank clearance over rough, boulder-strewn trails. They're also essential to protecting your pricey carbon cranks from unsightly scuffs and scratches.

Race Face Next SL G4 Crank Arms Race Face Next SL G4 Crank Arms
It would've been easy for the engineers at Race Face to sit back and relax for a while after the release of the Next SL, surveying their line of lithe carbon componentry with pride and satisfied nods of approval. We're glad to say that they chose not to do this, and because of it, the gram-conscious world of XC and trail riding can continue to benefit from the brand's persistent quest for improvement. This year, that overachieving spirit has left us with the updated Race Face Next SL G4 Crank Arms, which manage to achieve the elusive industry-wide goal of being both lighter and stiffer than their predecessors through smart construction and an effective choice in materials. Race Face didn't leave itself much room for improvement when it introduced its top-of-the-line Next SL last year, so for the most part, the brand let the effective design of the Next SL stand relatively unchanged. It continues to trust the same hollow carbon arm construction, reshaping the slim arms only slightly to integrate with the redesigned Next Direct Mount chainrings. This process ended up shaving six claimed grams per arm from last year's weight. Anticipating the demands of one-by setups, Race Face also improved the system's lateral stiffness so it can better withstand the chain tension at acute angles that it's likely to experience regularly. It did this by using Super Alloy, a metal that boasts up to a 20% increase in strength compared to the venerable 7050 aluminum, in the spline interface. To offset the weight that this could've added to the setup, it then drilled out the end of the 30mm spindle, removing unnecessary material and saving four more claimed grams in the process. As with the Next SL, the G4 continues to use Race Face's innovative Cinch system, allowing you to switch between one-by direct-mount chainrings or use a removable spider to run a double or triple setup if you swap bikes or change your mind.

Race Face Next SL G4 Crankset Race Face Next SL G4 Crankset
Rather than deciding to leave its top-of-the-line Next SL alone for a few years, Race Face returned to the drawing board quickly for the design, setting ambitious, but unsurprising goals to eliminate weight and improve lateral stiffness on what's now known as the Next SL G4 Crankset. By trying to surpass a design few could find fault with, the G4 is definitely dreaming big, but with a few changes, Race Face managed to shave 20g off of the G4 compared to the Next SL. Race Face began by slightly reshaping the G4's crank arms, continuing to use its effective hollow carbon construction but tweaking the design in search of yet more weight loss. In doing this, it managed to shave 6g from each of the svelte arms without compromising any of their strength. Race Face was particularly concerned with the amount of tension that the chain would exert on the crankset due to the chain line angles of a one-by setup, so it upgraded the spline to an alloy that's a claimed 20% stronger than 7050 aluminum. To offset the weight that this could've added to the setup, it then CNC'd the end of the 30mm spindle, removing unnecessary material and saving four more grams in the process. We're attaching these crank arms to Race Face's Narrow Wide Cinch Direct Mount Chainring. Regardless of the size you choose, this ring's tenacious chain retention make it almost more valuable than the stiffness and low weight of the crank arms themselves. Almost. The direct-mount design is a lighter, stiffer interface than the old ring/spider/arm design, and it plays the role of babysitter by keeping the chain from jumping around like an unruly adolescent trying to avoid bed time.

Rotor 3D Plus Road Crankarms Rotor 3D Plus Road Crankarms
Carbon cranksets might be all the rage, but those of us looking for a certain aesthetic, or certain stiffness, are still inclined to look to well-made, machined aluminum cranks to complete our builds. The Rotor 3D Plus Road Crankarms are the pinnacle of alloy crank construction. They're Trinity drilled, like most Rotor cranks, which relieves excess material without compromising strength or stiffness in the process -like a much-safer drillium. The result is similar to a box-truss bridge, and is as stiff as you'd expect a Rotor crank to be. The 3D Plus Road also uses a 30mm spindle, but thanks to Rotor's work on the bottom bracket front, it'll fit everything from traditional, 28mm threaded bottom brackets to BB Right, to BB30, so no matter what kind of bike you're riding, you can ride Rotor cranks. Additionally, the 3D Plus are designed to accept any kind of rings, including Rotor's ovalized Q-Rings. You'll choose between 110mm and 130mm BCD, but if you change your mind down the road, the alloy spider can be swapped quite easily for the other size. This also makes it play quite nicely with spider-based powermeters, like the SRM or Quarq.

Rotor 3D30 CX1 Crank Arms Rotor 3D30 CX1 Crank Arms
There's a time and place for carbon crank arms; however, it might not be the time you get too ambitious with a bunny hop and crack one open on a barrier. Rotor's 3D30 CX1 Crank Arms are right at home there, though, with an aluminum construction that's artfully machined to shed grams without losing any of alloy's stiff reliability--proving why come autumn, even the most carbon-obsessed roadie will hop on alloy cranks for 'cross. The aluminum 3D30 CX1 crank may not be as light as carbon models, but those extra grams are peanuts compared to the added weight from the beer hand-ups you take throughout the season. The other heavily touted benefit of carbon vs aluminum--stiffness--was rendered moot the first time we rode the 3D30 CX1 out of a sand pit in anger. They may in fact be more flexible, but we couldn't tell the difference. The crank arms owe their combination of low weight and high stiffness to Rotor's proprietary CNC-machining process, Trinity Drilling System. It involves mapping and removing as much material as possible without compromising the crank arms' structural integrity or stiffness. Maybe Rotor could've shaved off more weight, but we're assuming restraint won out because--like us--those crafty Spaniards were unwilling to make sacrifices in how the crank feels under the pedal stroke in order to score points on the scale. To which we say gracias.

Our wish list for cranksets is actually pretty short: stiff, reliable, and light. In that order. You're not alone if a little carbon fiber lightbulb just went off in your head, but many top manufacturers still rely on good ol' alloy for the job, Rotor included. The 3D30 Crank Arms are the brand's workhorse racing model. They're slightly heavier than the flagship 3D+ crank arms, but the difference is a mere 29g of claimed weight, and they're still every bit as stiff and reliable. Given the order of our above criteria, you'll understand why we're every bit as enthused about the 3D30 model. So the obvious question here is: what about the weight difference with carbon' It's negligible, at best. Rotor brings all of its tech-geekery to bear on these puppies in the form of a proprietary CNC-machining process called Trinity Drilling System (TDS).

Rotor Flow Aero Cranks Rotor Flow Aero Cranks
Rotor's 3D Plus Road crank is a revolutionary design in the world of carbon versus aluminum components. Using Rotor's Trinity Drilling System and 7055 alloy, it is stiffer than most carbon cranks, and it is also compatible with virtually any bottom bracket system. The Rotor Flow Aero Cranks, based on the 3D Plus, therefore is a paradigm-changing crank designed for both road and pure TT bikes. The Flow Aero features the same proprietary Trinity Drilling System (TDS) as Rotor's 3D cranks. This process drills three full-depth holes from axle to pedal, which leaves behind a structure similar in form to box-bridges. This is unlike a classic hollow tube crank design, due to two additional interior "walls" left over after drilling. This gives the crank arms an exceptional strength-to-weight ratio. Unlike the 3D cranks, the Flow features a smooth exterior and a shape that widens slightly as you move from the spindle to pedal. A crank does not fully intersect with laminar airflow while riding. This is due to the fact that the front wheel and fork have already cut through the air and the turbulent air that meets the cranks has less resistance than unbroken air. Because of this, the smooth surface of the crank excels to be even more aerodynamic. It gives a six second time reduction over a 40k TT at 200 watts, and in a race that is often won by seconds, this advantage could mean a place on the podium. Its design is worthy of both pure time trial frames, as well as your lightweight road frame. Please note that the chainrings are not included with this crankset. The QX rings are recommended, though you may use Rotor's round rings if your preference is toward classic shape. The Rotor Flow Aero Cranks are available in sizes 110-170mm, 110-172. 5mm, 110-175mm, 130-170mm, 130-172. 5mm, and 130-175mm. They come in the color Black.

Rotor QCX1 Aero Chainring Rotor QCX1 Aero Chainring
Though it does in fact have "aero" in the title, the key feature of Rotor's QCX1 Aero Chainring is actually its more pronounced oval shape, up to 12. 5% from the road-specific version's 10% ovality. That means it's even more efficient than the standard road model, especially in the high-reward portions of the pedal stroke where you're actually turning over the crank--not a bad upgrade considering this is Rotor's first foray into one-by 'cross machines. Efficiency at this portion of the stroke is arguably more valuable in 'cross, as punching out of corners and spinning up to speed after run-ups and obstacles can be the difference between getting a gap or just getting gapped. The alternating tooth profile helps retain the chain on a one-by drivetrain, and deep chamfers encourage peanut butter muck to stay the hell out of your drivetrain. Rotor recommends running the QCX1 ring on the inner position of a double crankset, but the brand does also offer cranksets and spider adapters to reposition the ring.

Rotor REX 1.1 Cranks Rotor REX 1.1 Cranks
Rotor has devoted itself to a new line of mountain bike cranks it's calling "REX," and they are based on the same successful Trinity Drilling System as all Rotor cranks. The REX 1. 1 is for a 1x drivetrain. The Trinity Drilling System (TDS) is a method of hollowing out the cranks, which reduces weight and maximizes stiffness. Unlike traditional hollow crankset design, the Trinity Drilling System drills three channels from the pedal to the spindle. While these holes remove excess material, they also leave behind two thin walls, making them stiffer than the design of a single hollow chamber. The TDS creates a maximum strength-to-weight ratio, and the arms were constructed using a new 7055 alloy, which is both lighter and more durable than the more often used 7075. UBB30 & UBB24 axles ensure maximum frame compatibility. Without the bottom bracket they weigh in at 489grams. The Q-factor is 163.

Shimano Dura-Ace FC-R9100 11-Speed Crankset Shimano Dura-Ace FC-R9100 11-Speed Crankset
If you, like a few of us old souls around the Competitive offices, are holding fast to your belief in the soul of mechanical shifting, Shimano hasn't abandoned you. Though the world may very well be moving towards 100% electronic drivetrains someday in the future, mechanical still makes a hell of a case for itself. With smooth lines, elegant finishing, and functionality beyond reproach, the redesigned mechanical Dura-Ace drivetrain calmly holds its own in this brave new world of wires, batteries, and display screens. It's fitting then, that the Dura-Ace FC-R9100 11-Speed Crankset also comes with the double chainrings that many roadies are loathe to abandon just yet. Call upon your granny gear when needed with this lighter, stronger version of a top-end classic, and embrace tried-and-true tradition of cables. Of course, in the even that you do decide to run electro-shifting, the crank's ring profile plays just as nicely with Di2 derailleurs. Shimano didn't introduce any drastic changes to its proven four-arm design, but it did make a few subtle, deliberate changes to bring it up to the most modern compatibility standards. By widening the crank arm, Shimano was able to move the chainline 0. 5mm outboard; this barely perceptible repositioning was just enough to give the crankset broader compatibility with shorter chainstays and the growing number of road bikes built for disc brakes. The gram counters will be happy to learn that beefing up the crank arm didn't result in a change in weight. Instead, Shimano was able to carefully remove internal material where it wasn't needed, strengthening only the most crucial areas of the crank arms and actually reducing weight by around a claimed 7g over the previous generation. The Japanese brand calls this process Hollowtech II, but it could very well be sorcery for all we know. In addition, Shimano also slightly reshaped the chainrings' gear teeth profile to adapt it to the gearing on disc brake-equipped race bikes. As alway...

The DA 9000 chainring is made from alloy that has been carbide-reinforced.

Additionally, the teeth on the rings receive less wear, making for consistent, smooth shifting.

Shimano SLX FC-M7000 1x Crankarms Shimano SLX FC-M7000 1x Crankarms
SLX's recent overhaul this year has left us all marveling at what a "workhorse" groupset can really become. Sleeker graphics, improved functionality, and a whole host of trickle-down technology from XT and XTR have closed the gap between SLX and Shimano's pricier groupsets, and we're thrilled about it. When you spec your bump-devouring trail frame with the SLX FC-M7000 1x Crankarms, you'll gain access to Shimano's impressive Hollowtech II construction, more consistent chain retention, and a lighter design than previous versions of SLX. Plus, it still occupies a price range that's kind to the everyday cyclist, which we can always get behind. As we mentioned, the biggest change that came to SLX crank arms this year is their transition to a Hollowtech II construction. Shimano manages to create stronger crank arms than most solid versions with this design, which is constructed with forged aluminum arranged around a hollow center. This strategic use of material shaves weight while still equipping the crankarms to be bashed over successive hits without complaint, and to transfer power as you work hard to turn them over. It's a fitting construction for today's breed of incredibly capable trail and enduro frames. They pair with either a 30T, 32T, or 34T SLX chainring, which have all been upgraded to offer better chain retention, significantly narrowing the gap between XT and SLX.

Shimano SLX FC-M7000 2x Boost Crankset Shimano SLX FC-M7000 2x Boost Crankset
Shimano has been steadily upgrading its road drivetrain hierarchy for the past several years now, benevolently delivering trickle-down technology to its more wallet-friendly groupsets to keep improving its designs across price points. Fortunately, the brand hasn't neglected the practice on the mountain side of things either, and this year treated its workhorse SLX groupset to a full 11-speed upgrade. Now built with sleek XT aesthetics and the durability we've always associated with Shimano, SLX looks to recapture some of the pre-spec'd bike build market with its up-to-date technology and accessible mid-range price point. Aiming to appeal to a range of riders and preferences, Shimano made SLX available in several different configurations, with the FC-M7000 2x Boost Crankset created for riders who prefer the gear range of a double chainring and the increase in stiffness of Boost spacing. It benefits from Shimano's Hollowtech II aluminum construction, which consists of a careful cold-forging process that results in stiffer, lighter crank arms than their solid counterparts would be. Rather than making one standard design for each configuration, Shimano adapted its construction details to each configuration, giving the FC-M7000 close gear ratio combinations so that you experience as little lag time in between shifts as possible -- especially helpful when you have seconds to drop into a low gear before a steep roller or are trying to accelerate quickly heading into a flat stretch. The chainrings themselves now boast teeth built with Shimano's Dynamic Chain Engagement technology, which suit them to manage different power outputs depending on the ring. This improves shifting overall by delivering more tailored shifts, along with an always-welcome increase in stiffness and improved chain retention. Shimano also made improvements to the FC-M7000's bottom bracket, developing better seals to guard against invading trail grit and water for this year. Though you won't get the...

Like the principal dancer in an elaborate ballet, the crankset stands as the pristine star of your drivetrain. Though it usually loses its original gleam after a day or two spent rallying through the dirt and mud, the crankset carries significant functional and aesthetic responsibilities. When Shimano overhauled its entire SLX groupset for this year, it showed an admirable attention to both, revealing a resplendent redesign that narrows the gap between SLX and its pricier siblings. If parting with your granny gear sends chills down your spine, the SLX FC-M7000 2x Crankset makes one hell of an upgrade for your trail bike, without losing the affordability SLX has always delivered. Trickle-down technology is the big story with the FC-M7000, appearing in the form of Shimano's Dynamic Chain Engagement (DCE) tooth profile, shaped to grab onto your chain without slowing it down on its journey. Together with the 3D composite chainring profile, the design increases retention by 150% from older designs, and we can't help but note that it looks as clean as it functions.

Few cranks can comfortably straddle every aspect of the mutable cyclist's life like Shimano's Ultegra 6800 Crankset, which brings the stiff Hollowtech II design of Dura-Ace to a price that appeals to riders outside of the peloton. The Ultegra 6800 Crankset may not be as light as the Dura-Ace model, but it still checks-in at a race-worthy 765g. While the Ultegra 6800 drivetrain's two extra speeds may be the most noticeable upgrade, in truth, the entire crankset has been redesigned to follow in its big brother's footsteps. The biggest change is the use of a four-arm, rather than the traditional five-arm, spider, which saves a claimed 26g. The new crankset design also standardizes the bolt circle diameter, so it accommodates standard or compact chainrings without having to spring for a completely new crankset. You're able to switch gearing from a 55-42t down to a 46-36t in a matter of a few minutes.

SRAM Force 1 BB30 Crankset SRAM Force 1 BB30 Crankset
The single chainring cyclocross setup carries with it a decades-old tradition of converting doubles to one-by setups with a stack of shorter bolts, a few hours spent fiddling with chain lines, and a heap of hoping it would work out for the best. With the launch of its CX1 groupset last season, SRAM ushered this popular setup into the mainstream by eliminating all the hurdles to achieving a perfect single-ring drivetrain. This year, SRAM expands the one-by line with its new Force 1 system, boasting phenomenal cyclocross functionality that crosses over just as well to road and gravel bikes. The Force 1 BB30 Crankset sits at the center of the group, driving forward with a clean chain line and exceptional chain retention. The crank arms are fashioned from light, stiff, unidirectional carbon fiber for swift, efficient power transfer and sharp responsiveness. At the center, a forged alloy spider provides a durable-yet-lightweight anchor while the SRAM X-SYNC chainring brings some extra chain retention features to the table to make this crankset really hum. X-Sync chainrings feature a distinctly tall and squared-off tooth shape that catches the chain earlier in the pedal rotation than standard, triangular teeth for improved chain stability and retention. The teeth's narrow, sharp profiles and rounded chamfer edges also help with chain retention, especially in minimizing chain deflection. SRAM also keeps the oft-muddy conditions of 'cross in mind: recesses help clear mud to move the chain swiftly through its rotation for smooth power transfer that reduces catches and mud suck. The SRAM Force 1 BB30 Crankset is available in a 110 or 130mm bolt circle diameter, each with several chainring size options to allow riders to maximize the ride experience based on their specific gearing needs.

SRAM Force 1 GXP Crankset SRAM Force 1 GXP Crankset
Cyclocross racing holds a storied history of single chainring lore and whispered advice on the best way to convert a double crankset to a single. For years, this process involved a quest for shorter bolts, much time cloistered in the garage trying to achieve an acceptable chain line, and many a crossed finger that it would work out on race day. SRAM took away all that hassle and brought one-by into the mainstream with the launch of its CX1 groupset last season. This year, SRAM expands its one-by offerings with the new Force 1 groupset, boasting exceptional cyclocross functionality that crosses over equally well to gravel adventures and road base miles. The Force 1 GXP Crankset sits at the center of the group with a perfect chain line and phenomenal, 'cross-friendly chain retention.

SRAM Force 1 X-Sync 11-speed Chainring SRAM Force 1 X-Sync 11-speed Chainring
SRAM's Force 1 is its cyclocross-specific 1x11 group. As you might expect, SRAM took the best of its mountain groups and crossed them with the best of its road groups to create the ultimate tough, lightweight, element-proof drivetrain. At the heart of this system is the Force 1 X-Sync 11-speed chainring. Borrowed from SRAM's top-shelf 1x mountain group, XX1, X-Sync technology is what makes the single ring up front possible without any kind of front derailleur or chain keeper. The tall, square-edged teeth engage the chain sooner than standard teeth. They are taller, but sharper and narrower to move the chain efficiently and minimize deflection. SRAM also included mud-clearing recesses to keep the inner links and rollers clear of debris, so you'll finish the race with the same number of gears that you started with.

SRAM Force 22 GXP Crankset SRAM Force 22 GXP Crankset
Beyond the 22 gears, the Force 22 GXP Crankset draws heavily from SRAM's Red technology for more precision and power than before. SRAM lays up the cranks with unidirectional carbon fibers. When placed parallel to each other, the strength of carbon fiber is maximized so that the loads work along the axis of the fibers. This also means the amount of carbon used is able to be reduced, which in turn means greater weight savings. The unidirectional carbon decreases flex, which means every pedal stroke counts for a bit more. The spider it's mated to is a forged alloy that includes the spindle on the non-drive side. SRAM chose to use a 130mm diameter spider, which means you're able to use it with most aftermarket chainrings. Taking the standard a bit further, however, the mounting bolt has been incorporated into the backside of the crank arm. This reduces deflection and ensures no skipped front shifts. Trickling down from the SRAM Red group are the Exogram chainrings. SRAM uses its "True 22" X Glide R chainring calibration, ensuring no missed shifts. They are machined from 5mm 7075-T6 aluminum and specifically designed for the 11-speed system with optimized shift ramp profiles and stiffness.

SRAM Red GXP Crankset SRAM Red GXP Crankset
SRAM's Red groupset has solidified a spot among the frontrunners of the peloton with its precise, reliable, "True 22" shifting. The Red 22 GXP Crankset sits at the center of the group, guiding the chain with SRAM's innovative Exogram technology for exacting power transfer and clean gear shifts. While the original SRAM Red crankset used a carbon-wrapped foam core to mold the cranks, the current design incorporates a true hollow cross-section. By laying-up the carbon to create a higher volume spider and larger diameter crank arms, SRAM is able to use less material while maintaining the power-transferring stiffness we expect from a carbon crank. The spider was also rotated to take advantage of the new shape, situating the fifth mounting bolt on the back of the crank arm itself to reduce deflection during shifting and extra-mashy efforts. While the spider arms have been reduced to four, SRAM still uses a 130mm bolt circle diameter on the standard cranksets and 110mm on the compact cranksets for compatibility with aftermarket chainrings. The included SRAM Exogram chainrings are machined from 5mm thick 7075-T6 aluminum and feature SRAM's X Glide R design to complement the movement of the yaw-caged Red front derailleur. SRAM used extensive computer-aided finite element analysis to optimize stiffness, shift pin locations, and ramp profiles for smooth shifting that still allows the removal of any excess material to save weight. This particular Red 22 GXP Crankset is compatible with the SRAM/Truvativ GXP bottom bracket standard, including the low-friction hybrid ceramic bearing option.

Where the original X-Sync teeth took on a boxy shape, Eagle's chainring boasts aggressively profiled teeth that hold the chain like a catnip-infused cat digging its claws into a brand-new screen door before letting it glide seamlessly back to the cassette for smooth, friction-free spinning. SRAM utilizes its Carbon Tuned technology to fashion the X01 Eagle arms with a proprietary carbon layup that increases stiffness where it's needed and minimizing excess material for an overall reduction in weight. In contrast to its top-tier XX1 Eagle cousin's hollow core construction, the X01 Eagle crank arms feature a foam core that adds a handful of grams to keep costs down without impacting responsiveness. The direct-mount chainring interface also affords the option of quickly subbing different rings for different shapes of terrain, allowing flexibility to adapt to the day's planned route.

Admit it: you don't really need your extra granny gear anymore. Sure, you'll use it if it's there, but like your childhood night light, you're more reassured by the presence of a granny gear than by what it's actually doing. Upgrade to SRAM's venerable X01 one-by drivetrain and in addition to gaining a shockingly wide cassette, you'll be able to rally over the rough stuff with the benefit of SRAM's nearly indestructible X01 Direct Mount Crankset. The cranket's direct mount design essentially throws out the extra weight of a spider for a cleaner built-in aluminum spider setup that's just as durable as more traditional designs. Carbon fiber crank arms complement the spider, and aside from a few cosmetic details, they're almost identical to SRAM's pricier XX1 crankset, so don't worry about sacrificing functionality for a drop in price. If the loamy singletrack you ride rarely dries out, you'll appreciate the squared-off teeth that adorn the X-Sync chainring, shaped specifically to clear mud and gunk so you don't get bogged down on sticky stretches of trail. Even if drier terrain is more the norm for you, ride reassured that X-Sync's profile will latch onto your chain and keep it securely in place while you focus on the line ahead.

SRAM X1 1000 BB30 Crankset SRAM X1 1000 BB30 Crankset
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.

SRAM XX1 GXP Direct Mount Crankset - 156 Q-factor SRAM XX1 GXP Direct Mount Crankset - 156 Q-factor
SRAM's XX1 GXP Direct Mount Crankset achieves a low 156 Q-factor by taking advantage of two of the crank's essential design characteristics: spider-free mounting and a single chainring. The result places the pedals over a centimeter closer to the bottom bracket than they'd be on a 168. Though that may not seem like much in the vacuum of a tech spec sheet, that centimeter can feel like miles when the extra clearance provides a bit more room for error on the ragged edge. Except for the narrower profile, this crankset features the same lightweight, carbon stiffness of the wider model. The standard XX1 chainring-to-chain redesign returns unchanged, featuring a pattern of wide/narrow teeth with tall, square edges to maintain early, confident engagement for popping up rocky climbs or dropping the hammer in a finale. The direct mount version also affords the option of quickly subbing different sizes of rings for different shapes of terrain, giving the true all-mountain racer a bit of start-line flexibility to adapt to a given course, and SRAM's GXP design uses a 22mm gutter on the non-drive side to reduce friction and weight without sacrificing the drive side's power transfer.

Tracing its history back to being the unbranded crankset behind a multitude of podiums earned by the members of SRAM's pro team, Descendant cranksets have enjoyed an illustrious history. Now known by name by the public for its workhorse capabilities and budget-friendly price, the Descendant 11-Speed BB30 Direct Mount Boost Crankset was treated to an update for 2017. If you're looking for a versatile, bombproof crankset that won't blow your travel budget for the summer, you won't find much with a better fit than the Descendant. A 7000-series aluminum construction is responsible for much of the Descendant's behavior, allowing it to occupy a reasonable price point and equipping it with the combination of stiffness and lightness that adapts it so well to all-around trail and all-mountain riding. While you're launching off a drop bigger than you expected or dicing through a rocky, hand-numbing line, you can ride with assurance that the Descendant won't fall apart. The direct mount ring also simplifies the design, allowing the streamlined new aesthetics to stand out and trimming bulk over bolted models. For added peace of mind, the Descendant accommodates a bash guard to add protection for the chainring, and includes SRAM's impressive X-SYNC chainring for precise chain retention, its squared-off teeth holding onto chains admirably through muddy, wet conditions and dry days alike.

Truvativ's Descendant line has enjoyed a long history as a workhorse group of components, tested on the rigors of the pro circuit before being released to the masses. For 2016, parent-company SRAM sought to freshen up the somewhat outdated aesthetics of the cranksets, and the resulting Truvativ Descendant 11-Speed GXP Direct Mount Crankset represents a clean, well-executed makeover that firmly announces Descendant's march towards the future. Stiffness and durability earned the highest priority as SRAM redesigned the Descendent Crankset, but ease of use and overall practicality were clearly considered as well. In adopting a direct mount ring, SRAM shaved weight from prior models, and it bestowed a single updated X-SYNC chainring upon it, complete with its commendable tooth profile to engage your chain early and help it function eagerly in muddy, sticky conditions.
