DMR ExType Crankset

Our review

Super solid with long-lasting looks but a weak BB and high weight

DMR’s cunning ExTypes have been our default replacements for crank-breaking hooligans for a couple of years now.


The integrated steel axle is welded onto their proven chromoly steel arm on one side and bolted on at the other. This gives convenient fitting and slam-proof steel strength, and they’re not even conspicuously heavy.

They cranks are available in 170 or 175mm lengths and come with a conventional four-arm spider, but five-arm and direct-fit DMR splined chainrings (28, 36 and 38-tooth) are available, making this a versatile setup.


We’ve used this crank on maximum-abuse jump bikes without a hint of flex, creak or other weakness. The chromed finish stays looking fly for a long time. We can’t say the same about the bottom bracket, but they’re primarily cranks for pounders, not pedallers.
