Anyone broken any XX1 cranks?
No XX1 expereince, but I’m running carbon SL-K cranks on my Genius.Posted 4 years ago
crank end bumpers like raceface have would have been great, but I’ve bashed them enough now that I dont worry about the cosmetic damage
Having happily run carbon frames, bars, posts for years, I’m not at all worried about breakage.woolymonsterMember
Max – Yeah, as it happens I was working today and a poor sod on his lovely XX1 equipped Spicy had literally broken the pedal off the drive-side crank arm. The pedal was still attached to the shoe and basically the threaded insert and a chunk around it had detached from the arm. Warranty for sure and the first one I’ve seen or heard of, but concerning nonetheless…Must have been a beast of a man, with pistons to match! 🙂Posted 4 years agoDanWMember
seen a few snapped X0 crank arms….still use one on my dh bike.
Yep, there a few pics floating around the web of people damaging X0 in various ways. I think they tend to be porkers coming up short on some fairly sizeable DH jumps rather than JRA’s so I wouldn’t worry.
Personally I’d have no qualms about a carbon crank and ride a FSA K-Force for XC riding.
X0/ XX1/ XO1/ S-2200 (OE) are all the same crank with different graphics and different spiders. I’d get whatever is cheapest and go with a direct mount ring (even if buying XX1) for a cleaner look and lighter chainset.Posted 4 years agodreednyaSubscriber
My two to three year old XX cranks developed a problem. The spider started to unbond from the cranks so the cranks started to contact the swing arm under load. Seeing it was a carbon swing arm I replaced them with some Turbine cranks (XX ring compatible). Great cranks, nice and stiff – until they started to unbond.Posted 4 years agonjee20Subscriber

That’s weird – surely they’re 1 piece on XX cranks? Do you mean they cracked?Posted 3 years ago
