 Absolutely the best crankset I have ever ridden. I have been on raceface since the early 90's and these are the perfect evolution... Strength to Weight is excellent, Chainrings are of the highest quality... so good... especially in RED.

 Awesome cranks, good price, stiff, easy to install, bomb proof. Used to come in wicked colours too. Compatible with Chris King Bottom Brackets as well! May be difficult to find a chainring that fits... as they use the same lip on the spider as Truvativ, which limits your chainring compatibility.

 Deceptively stiff and super light cranks. Get rid of the stock BB it will go south sooner than later. The crank arms and bash set are super simple but very strong even though they are so light. Other than the flashy colors these cranks do exactly whet you expect.

 Pretty much can't say enough good stuff about these. They're light and incredibly stiff. They pedal super easy. The design looks awesome. They come in lots of colours to match your rig. I've ran them on 2 of my bikes and never had a single issue ever with either set...

 I have these on my SS bike and they perform really well. Having used Diabolus cranks on two big bikes in the past I was a bit hesitant to put a lighter and skinnier crank on but after 2 weeks of abuse in Whistler and BC trails without fault I'm really impressed. Unless you are going for the really big stuff or are particularly brutal on your gear these are more than sufficient. + pointless to haul a lot of excess weight around when you don't need it.

 Good bit of kit bought these cranks as an upgrade for my big hit, they replaced my truvativ crankset.
Pros:
Strong
Light
Look good
Feel seemless
Incorporated crank puller is good once i worked out how to use it
Bombproof
X-type bb is awesome, looks good and is solid

Cons:
Pricey
Pain to set up for the first time
Instructions confused me

Great crankset worth saving up for but would be easier for a bike shop to install, that is if you have any pennys left

 I have broken two other cranks, bontrager king earl, which is the same as the Truvativ Hussefelt just different crank arms. The other crank i broke is the older version of the Truvativ Hussefelt the left crank arm kept falling off no matter how hard you tighten it.
the Race Face Atlas FR seems to be lasting.
started creaking two weeks ago, it just needed tightening. Best crank I have had!
from what i have been told it has lifetime warranty. Crank looks great, can get it in lots of colors.

 I've been running these cranks for three years now and they are still running great. . . I ran gravity lights for about a month before they bent. . . and these are roughly the same weight. I've crashed on them, clipped trees at full speed and other than a few scuff marks they still look near new!

So the bottom line: reasonably light and strong gets my vote every time!

 Similar to the diablous, with the same removable inner ring spider. The same spacers to perfectly align the chainline for use with a chain guide. Almost as stiff and a lot lighter. Now available in a myriad of colours.

 Light, strong and sexy. It may not be the absolute lightest, but do you really need the small savings at the cost of strength?
Plus most other crank sets don't come in as many colors.

 I love these cranks! They have the best chainline adjustablity out there (in my opinion). The removeable granny ring spyder is really handy when using them with a chainguide.
