Simple, relatively light weight compared to other non-carbon downhill cranks, stiff, tough

Really great crank from Truvativ. If their World Cup Team riders ride these, they must be good. I ride them on my Morewood Makulu and they really make the bike. You barely notice them - they just do their job. Dont know if it was just me, but I had to take the BB apart and clean in the first two weeks to stop an annoying creek, but once put back together I have had absolutely no trouble. Another thing I noticed is that because they have a flat outside surface with no ribs, your ankles rarely get hit or hurt. Overall, a reliable, strong, lightweight crank worthy of any build.
