Preview: Race Face SIXC Crankset

Whats lighter than an XTR crank, 35% stronger in testing, ultra stiff, and has the label: AM. 
Well thats the new Race Face SIXC crank. Race Face has gone all out with their newest SIXC product line, that so far counts a carbon bar, and this carbon crankset. The SIXC ckrankset is the culmination of years of engineering of both carbon and AM products. And Race Face wanted to make the sickest and strongest AM gear, with the lowest weight possible - so far they delivered, and supposedly, this crankset is strong enough for light freeride as well.

I look forward to test this crank, regarding to shifting, strength, durability, and overall mtb-abuse. Ill do my best to beat it up - good. Keep your eyes peeled on the All Mountain Next blog, a review will follow.

I went for the 22-32-Bashguard combination:

There is no alu core inside these arms - its all carbon:

Optional arm protectors (pedal boots), prevents rocks beating up the arms:
