RaceFace Atlas FR Chainset

Our review

An outstanding crankset even if the BB doesn’t match up

RaceFace’s Atlas AM crank is tough enough, but this limited edition FR version is more robust than most manufacturers’ pure downhill racing set-ups.


We’ve logged years of trouble-free riding on the original Atlas AM, and this version gets a stronger chromoly axle for even more durability. 

Supplied with two tough alloy chainrings and etched alloy bashguard, it also features a removable inner ring spider to increase chain device clearance. The result is a rock solid, lifetime warrantied crankset at just over the kilo mark.


Short bottom bracket life – even with the new seals and Phil Wood grease – is a weak link, but it performs as sweetly as its laser etched contour design looks.
