    I love my XT Hollowtech cranks. This is bike #2 in a row that I've used with them. The last bike was a triple that I converted to a 2x. This one is a 2x that I converted to a single. To me, this is where to put your emphasis within your drivetrain. I could probably get by with SLX everything, but I have to have my XT cranks and BB. Love the feel, love the durability as these are what usually get bashed on logs, rocks and whatever else I can't get out of the way of on the trail. I've never had an issue nor a complaint.

    Pros
    Weight
    Durability
    Dependability
    Looks

    Cons
    None

    Definitely recommend these as they perform their job very well.

    Pros
    Strong, easy to remove, can easily convert to 1X and they look beefy but the weight doesn't match the looks.

    Cons
    None

    Great crankset. This is the measuring device that most other cranksets are measured against.

    Pros
    Solid, stiff, durable, lightweight

    Cons
    no bash guard version available

    If you have the $$$, make the purchase. You won't regret this one. XT stuff is the non-sponsored mtber's go to gear for good reason. It's nice but not so nice you need a logo on your back to afford it.

    Pros
    Stiff and relatively light for a 3 ring crankset. Crankarms take a beating and walk away with minor nicks. The middle ring lasts a LONG time.

    Cons
    Chainrings are expensive to replace and the granny wears quickly.

    This is a SWEET crankset that is deceptively light and stiff. Couple it with an XT derailleur up front and you will never worry about shifting again.

    Pros
    Light. Replaceable cogs. come in a 48 tooth and 44 tooth version. External cups for BB are easy to replace. Middle ring is made of a stronger steel composite for durability. STIFF.

    Cons
    Not a thing!

    Great set of cranks with no problems after one very hard ridden season. I usually don't go with shimano but I can't complain about this set of cranks. Good pricepoint.

    Pros
    Stiff. Great looks.
