Product Details

SRAM Force Crankset (53/39)

Competition-focused technology is available to everyone with SRAM's Force Crankset. Its unidirectional carbon design and integrated bottom-bracket axle ensure top-notch stiffness for awesome power transfer and exceptional lightness. And, because being light is nothing without being tough, the Force proudly boasts SRAM's hard-anodized PowerGlide chainrings for long-lasting durability and lightning-quick shifts.

    Comments:

    I've had my 2007 Force group on my bike for three years now, and it's good stuff. The crank is no exception. Very stiff, shifts well (Even with a big jump between chainrings), and is reasonably lightweight. I had some initial trouble with the chainrings warping but the [...] I think newer cranks have stiffer chainrings, too.I will be upgrading to the blackbox ceramic BB, however, as the stock BB seems to have excessive drag relative to other outboard bearing BBs.

    SRAM outdid themselves

    Pros

    • Durable
    • Enhances Pedaling Efficiency
    • Lightweight
    • Easy To Install
    • Precise Shifting

    Cons

    • Buy different brakes

    Best Uses

    Comments:

    Everything is A+++++. Smooth shifts after break-in shifting is thougthless. All cables hidden so it looks better than that Japanese company and is cheaper than the French one. Who cares about ceramic bearings unless you like throwing money away, no one will ever know the difference, ceramic bearings are overkill so don't buy into the hype.

    • Many gearing options
    • Easy To Install

    Cons

    • No ceramic bearing option

    Comments:

    Great effort by SRAM on this crank, and the Force gruppo in general. This crank sets up easily and once it's on it shifts like a dream, whether you choose one of the compact options (50-34 or 50-36, rarer) or the normal 53-39.Time will tell how the carbon finish holds up in CAT IV racing but it sure looks cool out of the box.My one beef? I hope they're coming up with a ceramic bearing option to lessen the friction inherent in the outboard bearing design. I've heard rumours there's a new SRAM gruppo coming out that will be even higher-end than FORCE so maybe with it will come a ceramic BB option.
