The SixC Cransket from Race Face is what happens when racers ask for something special. Downhillers wanted a light, durable carbon crank for racing. RF delivered this. It is the perfect power element for all mountain, enduro, and downhill rides. Able to withstand the forces humans can apply to bicycles, and the forces that the trail can also apply to bicycles.
It weighs 532g with a 32-tooth direct-mount chainring. They’re able to get it so light thanks to US-sourced carbon-fiber and Canadian fabrication. The arms are a bit bulky for maximum strength, but they’re still pretty light.
As 1x’s are everywhere, most people will want to pair this crank with a direct mount ring. They are available in two-tooth increments from 24-42 teeth. You can also get a 104/64mm 2x and a Boost option is available as well, and a 120/80mm spider. All options are sold separately. All utilize Cinch, which is a spline on the inside of the right crankarm that is secured via a lock ring. You’ll need a specific lock ring tool from Race Face or Park to install the ring or spider.
The crankset comes with a 30mm diameter, 134mm width spindle, which is sent attached to the left arm. The inside of the arm also has a pre-load adjusting collar. You can get 170 or 190mm spindles separately, or a Cinch power meter spindle.
You’ll also need to source a bottom bracket. You’ll need a bottom bracket or bearings that fit your standard. This spindle/crank setup works with BSA 68/73mm, BB89.5/92, PF30 68/73mm, 392 EVO, BSA 83mm, BB 107/104.5, PF30 83mm, BSA 100, BB124/121.5, PF30 100mm, BSA 120mm, BB144/141.5, and PF30 120mm.
You can even get a BMX-specific 104mm spider if you want to put this crank to work in that discipline.
The Race Face SixC Crank comes in three lengths, 165, 170, and 175mm. It comes with pedal washers, pedal boots, installation instructions, and a sticker. You’ll need a few specialized tools including: the lock ring tool (Park’s BBT-22 or Cinch from RF), 16mm hex key, soft mallet, and torque wrench.
