Strengths:    i guess it's a crank.

This hunk of $hit has been a PITA since I bought it. I thought it would be a progression of the awesome original turbine cranks that I have been an avid fan of. Nope, not that cool of a crankset (e.g. machining, good looks) nor is it particularly light weight. Went to install a single speed ring on it and it's not 104 bcd, it's a friggin' new size that no one supports hardly - 120 bcd. Glad I got this $hit used off ebay and didn't bolster RF with a sale of this POS. Seriously every step of the way has been difficult in getting this thing to work on my bike.

Bottom Line:   
probably OK if it's already installed on your bike. Headaches turn after turn otherwise.

Strengths:    Light, Sturdy, Smooth, Durable, Beautiful, great value of performance vs price!

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
These cranks are awesome! I wanted to switch to 2x10 without breaking the bank and getting carbon. I tend to be harsh on my cranks riding on trails with rocks and a low BB, so wanted to stick with aluminum that's beefy enough to take a lickin' and keep on tickin'. These cranks fit the bill in every way. They are light for alloy, stiff as all getout, durable, and look fantastic. Reminds me of the good old days! As RF says on their marketing specs, it's light and fast enough for XC, and durable and strong enough for Trail and AM. Beautifully machined 7050 aircraft aluminum with stiff I beam design, 7075 "badass" chainrings. Came with a really light GXP Bottom Bracket. Installing the BB and Cranks was Easy. BB didn't necessarily look as "robust" as others I have used on bomb-proof build such as CK, but haven't had any issues yet. (and as a wear Item you can always replace with your choice later on). The price is also outstanding given what you get. Could not be happier with this kit!

Race Face Turbine 2x10 120 BCD single speed chainring? Renthal?

Hello ya'll. I recently bought a RF turbine crankset for my Karate Monkey with the intention of converting it to a singlespeed crank. What a pain in the dick this has been. First, it's not 104 BCD like you'd think, it's 120 BCD which hardly anyone uses and neither the aftermarket, nor RF har ... Read More »

Cranks - Sram X9 vs Race Face Turbine–need help choosing a 2x10 crank and chain guide

Looking for a new crank for my Bronson. Currently running a 3x10 set up with an X9 long cage rear derailleur type 2. I already have a 2x10 X9 FD and shifter. My current crank is 175mm and I keep hitting rocks. So I am almost definitely going to go to a 170mm. It looks like 172.5mm mtb cranks are ra ... Read More »

Chainrings for Race Face Turbine 2x10

I picked up a turbine 2x10 crankarm set recently at a good price, I thought. I didn't do my homework well enough and found out buying a set of RF chainrings for it would result in about the same total price as buying a complete crankset that I see on sale (I would save about $10-20; I thought two r ...

Race face Next sl and race face Turbine Sl with Shimano 2x10 drive train

Any compatibility issues if I were to use a Next sl 2x10 or a turbine 2X10 with 10 speed Shimano XTR, XT, or SLX, drive train? I was looking at 30/42 in front and 11-36 in back. Also any issues with using an XT cassette with XTR RD and FD. I was reading on Shimano's website that if you use the ... Read More »
