 Amazing power transfer! Light weight. Durable. I upgraded this from my Race Face Evolve and the difference was incredible. So much more instant power transfered to the bike. Made everything better. Great upgrade. Pricey though.

 These cranks are super easy to install, with the bearing preload ring getting the fit perfect on the first attempt. Once on, the cranks look brilliant and are so stiff that they make my shins feel flexy. Main hint is to use these cranks with the matching front derailleur for the best 3-ring shifting possible.

 2 months after replacing my Race Face Deus XC crankset with these I have no complaints. They feel great and are noise-free. I will see after 1 year.

6 months later and still loving the shimano xtrs. Bb bearings are smooth and noise free even after riding through snow. Shimano bbs are the way to go.

 I've ridden for a long time -since 1997 and never bought a set until this year. I used to run the industry standard XT's and always thought, "How much better could XTR be?" Now I finally know and the answer is- Definately better. Saving just over a hundred grams on XT and in terms of performance? OUTSTANDING. So stiff, so precise, I believe they will improve your cadence by 20 rpm compared to XT. Front shifting is way better and the ti middle enhances durability. The carbon inserts are used to great effect improving the overal strength along with the use of that duraluminum stuff. Can it get any better than this? I don't think so. Totally regret not buying them earlier. Oh and they look very classy too - the crank arms shine nicely(mirror) in the sun.

 Tested and True. Expensive, but can be had for much less than the quoted $740.17 on this page. Shimano BB's are throw-away parts, though. Last months, not seasons.

 Nice and light and stiff. More reliable than carbon cranks, pretty much the same weight and often cheaper.

 One of the logic in bicycle and almost everything is that the most expensive thing is one of the greatest!
