I can't find lightweight carbon arm/spindle in BB30 with $79 WT DM ring to come close in weight (believe XX1/XO1 is closest) to the Next SL 1x, and the price gap is not that far off. Weight difference is about 90 grams.

Never thought I'd say this, but is the Race Face Next SL 1x crank with DM ring a "good" deal compared to other lightweight crankarms and an aftermarket DM ring when purchased for $386 delivered via mailorder.

Must be BB30, direct mount, light and carbon. Posting in hopes I'm missing the obvious.

FYI - when I actually weighed my XX1 BB30 cranks + BB I found I was only taking a 80g hit over using the Next SL cranks. If I got rid of the spider and bolts and used a DM ring, I estimate the weight difference would only be 30-40g.

Now if you have a BB92 or threaded BB, the weight difference is more substantial.

Interesting. I thought it was near 90 grams without the XX1 spider and bolts + DM ring. I've weighed a Next SL 1x with ring but never the XX1 with only DM.

Maybe your weight gap is closer due to the Cinch bb vs the lighter SRAM bb?
