Shimano SLX M675 cranks$229.99

Superb value twin-ring crankset

BikeRadar score4.5/5

When it comes to cost-effective twin-ring cranksets, nothing comes close to SLX. Shimano’s Hollowtech II hollow forged arm technology underlines the whole unit with excellent stiffness and strength. It’s only 24g heavier than the more expensive XT version, and the polished crank faces keep it looking better for longer.

The durable drilled steel inner ring is matched to an extensively ramped and pinned outer ring for the smoothest, fastest shifting in the business. Super-durable bearings are included in the very affordable price and oversized BB adaptors are available.
