Race Face Next SL 1X Crankset 2014

The NEXT SL crank represents the next generation of Race Face carbon cranks, completely redesigned for 2014. Weighing in at a category leading, 500 grams, the Next SL cranks are 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 NEXT SL the lightest carbon crankset to hit the shelves, but it just may be the most versatile as well. The NEXT SL is proudly designed, tested and manufactured in Race Face’s Canadian facility, using U.S. sourced carbon and aluminum.

  • Completely hollow carbon fiber crankarms with all unnecessary material being removed from the centre core – no internal aluminum spine
  • Industry standard 30mm spline interface CNC machined from a newly commercialized aluminum super alloy that is 20% stronger than 7050 alloy (the alloy commonly used in this application)
  • Built For: XC Race/Trail/Enduro
  • BB Options: BB92, 68/73 BSA, 100mm BSA, PF30
  • Ability to fit all common frame types
  • Spiderless Direct Mount: 26, 28, 30, 32, 36, 34T
  • Chainline: 51mm
  • Claimed weight: 425g (28T w/o BB)
  • Bottom Bracket not included

These cranks feature a 30mm spindle, however will work with a standard 68/73mm bottom bracket shell width when using this bottom bracket: Click HERE

      Comments about Race Face Next SL 1X Crankset:

      I have these cranks on my Giant Trance and they have been great. I generally run them 1x10 (with a 30t or 34T), but I am heading to a ride with a ton of climbing and going to go to a 2x set up. The only downside to these cranks are that they are so nice looking, you don't want to risk them on the trails...but, you will :)

      Comments about Race Face Next SL 1X Crankset:

      I installed this crank set on my carbon fiber hard tail and dropped about half a pound! The install was incredibly easy, and I didn't need any special tools to complete it. (There is a special tool used to install the chain ring, but my cranks already had that installed. The special tool is just a bottom bracket tool, a common one.) The adjustment set up they use is just like the one used on my last set of XTR cranks, very simple. Yes they use a bolt that you turn using a 2mm allen wrench to secure the locking ring. You won't have any problems with it as long as you don't over tighten it. The instructions tell you to tighten the bolt until the gap on the locking ring has closed. Stop as soon as the gap is gone and you won't ruin the bolt. The set up works just fine. I bet if you needed a replacement bolt RaceFace would send you one any way. You will need a 30mm bottom bracket for this crank set. The crank set is Beautiful, strong and stiff and I love!

      Comments about Race Face Next SL 1X Crankset:

      Got this as a Christmas gift. It took about a month to get the install tool as it was sold out everywhere and no local shops had it. Install was a breeze. It is beautiful and crazy light. Mine came in at 8 grams under the listed weight. I have run a single 30t ring for the last two seasons. I got this for the narrow/wide tooth design with the hope that I won't drop the chain--something that happened every couple of rides with my old XTR single-ringsetup. I have yet to drop a chain after 40+ rides this season. I couldn't be happier.

      Comments about Race Face Next SL 1X Crankset:

      What a nightmare of an install! The locking bolt on the preload is a 2mm hex. It's a very flimsy bolt that strips easily. BEWARE!!! I could not keep the crankset tight, it loosened up and I had to walk out of three different trails. Returned. Not good for a $500 crankset.
