Featured Review

“Race Face Atlas FR Cranks”

The Good: Strong, stiff, durable

The Bad: Can't find any flaws yet

Overall Review:

I've been a fan of Race Face cranks since back in the days of square tapered bottom brackets and the North Shore crank sets, the Atlas is an evolution of the DH /freeride crank that provides a stiff and durable crank while keeping the weight at a minimum. The weight to strength ratio of this crank is very good, that’s probably why this crank can be seen on full out DH bikes to all mountain/trail bikes. It's a solid crank that allows you to setup and then ride without any hassles for the rest of the season.


Besides the great performance and durability, the other great thing about the Atlas range of cranks is that they offer a lot of color ways allowing you to truly get a custom looking setup on your bike. While most cranks come in just one color option, the Atlas line has several base colors plus the addition of some limited editions like the Green Monster and Kash Money (kashima colorway)

So overall this is a great crankset that can be used for various types of riding, it’s very durable and stiff while also being a great value. I would strongly recommend this product.

“Race Face Atlas Cranks”

The Good: Great super stiff cranks. have been running a set for years that are 3x9 configuration. Have held up to a lot of riding from XC to freeride and lift accessed terrain. Solid feeling and you don't have to think about them at all. just ride.

The Bad: A bit expensive and a little heavy but maybe not a really a bad thing? Have never gotten a long life out of a Race Face bottom bracket.

Overall Review:

Nice solid long lasting durable crank set.

“RF atlas FR cranks.”

The Good: Tough, Fairly light wieght, Looks pretty sweet.

The Bad: The price, and no steel threaded pedal insert may concern some.

Overall Review: I like them. I was at first concerned about the lack of a steel insert. I've torn out pedals from cranks that don't have them so I was a little worried. However I've had these for almost a year and no issue yet. I got them in Black and the finish is holding up really well.
