great option for good lightweight cassette.
ProsLightweight, smooth shifting
Conspricey, however the price has come down
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.
Definitely recommend these as they perform their job very well.
ProsStrong, easy to remove, can easily convert to 1X and they look beefy but the weight doesn't match the looks.
Great crankset. This is the measuring device that most other cranksets are measured against.
ProsSolid, stiff, durable, lightweight
Consno 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.
ProsStiff 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.
ConsChainrings are expensive to replace and the granny wears quickly.
ProsStiff, no flex, easy install.
ConsNot 10 speed.
Awesome crank for quality and price!
ProsSolid, light weight, no wobble when mashing.
The only cranks I will buy
ProsThey are durable. Excellent
I need another set of these for a bike build I want to do and these cranks are the way to go...
ProsThis crank set is solid,they feel like they will last forever.
will never use another crank as long as im riding. it is a great crank for the price and you will notice the upgrade immediately
ProsGreat stiff crankset. surprisingly light. shifting is not a problem.
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.
ProsLight. 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.
ConsNot a thing!
A great crankset for anyone looking to improve shifting performance.
ProsExtremely smooth shifting. Very stiff. Great durability. Light weight.
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.
ProsStiff. Great looks.
