Race Face SIXC AM Crankset Pro Review

I have been testing a set of the Race Face SIXC (silent C) cranks for almost 2 months now, and they have proven to be stiff, durable, have been good shifting, and are made of uber bling carbon fiber. The SIXC cranks are made with their Optimized Carbon Technology program, and have been created for All Mountain biking, so they are slightly overbuilt in comparison to the usual carbon cranks.

Strengths:    Light. Stiff. Quality of Construction

Weaknesses:    None Yet.

Bottom Line:   
have been using these for almost a year now with zero issues. Mostly been using them for light freeride, but bought them because they were light enough to pedal up as well. I've been a sceptic of the whole carbon movement for a while, but I since converted buy choosing a Ibis Mojo HD and putting these on as well. I think the majority of the weaknesses around carbon are either from a lack of education on the material and fad fear mongering of exploding components and frames. I've found these to be nothing but reliable and the quality of construction above what I've found with other RF products. I would warn any potential buyer to speak to RF (now back in business) regarding different ring configurations. I run mine with a single ring no bash and found that there was a set of priority spacers needed that were not included in the box. Had I run single ring with a regular spacer from a shop I would've sheared off the ring tabs. All different materials have a learning curve and a quick call to RF before setting mine up got me on my way with spacers sent free of charge from them. Nice piece of kit.

Strengths:    Light for AM cranks very stiff and durable. Great look.

Weaknesses:    Direct hit from rocks chips the top surface of the carbon. No structural damage just cosmetic.

Bottom Line:   
I am very pleased with the performance of the cranks. It's a perfect fit to my ride. Since the cranks are carbon it was expected to be more vulnerable to impact strikes from rocks but I believe there is some room for improvement. Over all they are an excellent product and highly recommended. Since Race Face is no longer in business there is some concern about the warranty and replacement parts. Sad to see Race Face go out of business.

Raceface Sixc vs Easton Haven carbon bars

I was leaning towards the Race Face due to the added length but cannot find any info about their warranty / warranty period. Their issues with the Sixc cranks have me a bit concerned.
