Race Face Sixc Cinch 83mm Crankset
The Race Face SIXC (the C is silent, eh!) line of products has always been a culmination of years of engineering mountain bike parts to withstand the rigors of racing DH or AM riding. The Race Face SIXC Cinch crankset was created for the all mountain rider that requires the best equipment available, integrating their new Cinch bottom bracket technology with their legendry SIXC cransket. Light enough to be installed on your AM bike but strong enough to also shred some gnarly downhill. Thanks to the integration of Race Face’s Cinch technology, it's also versatile enough to be installed on just about any bike. The Race Face SIXC Cinch is the product many epic riders have been waiting for.
Similar to the Race Face Next SL crankset, the Race Face SIXC Cinch crankset also features Race Face’s Cinch technology, making it part of the next generation of Race Face carbon cranks. Weighing in at just 550 grams, the SIXC Cinch cranks are some of the lightest, strongest, 100% carbon fiber MTB cranks ever produced. This is achieved through utilizing the proven Race Face proprietary hollow arm technology. Race Face has created a crank that goes beyond existing carbon material & process limitations, setting a new benchmark. Not only is the SIXC Cinch one of the lightest carbon crankset to hit the shelves, but it’s one of the most versatile as well. The SIXC Cinch is proudly designed, tested and manufactured in Race Face’s Canadian facility, using U.S. sourced carbon and aluminum.

+ Solid crank, takes a lickin keeps tickin. Was concerned at first with carbon crank getting beat up on trail, after using them for 2 years now, they have stood up well.
+ Love the CINCH ring. Using 26t ring as a 1x setup with free floating chain - no chain guide or tensioners. Dont have any issues with the chain coming off.
+ Race Face offers a wide ring size selection, with the CINCH setup it will be easy to quickly change.
+ Seems to work well with smooth shifting and peddling as a 1x with Shimano XT. Super quiet too.
+ Installation and maintenance are pretty easy. Unit comes on and off with some allen wrenches. Adjustments are easy to do and rarely needed.
- Needs a lot of torque when you setup the crank. When I first put on the cranks I did not tighten up the crank bolt tight enough and the crank would loosen up pretty quickly. By actually reading the setup guide and following the torque recommendations, problem solved. It is a lot more torque than I what I expected.
- The Race Face BSA30 bottom bracket I used for this is not very good as others have noted - poor durability, higher friction. Would suggest going with the equivalent Enduro angular bearings or Chris King NoThread 30.
