Have a set of Truvativ Descendant Carbon cranks. Today managed to put a solid gouge in them in a rather stupid way. No crash or impact, tried to ride over a stretched and low slung wire fence, wire managed to get hooked on crank arm and result is shown below.

Gave it a good mark. Cant see any de-lamination, nor feel any broken fibres so thinking it might just be superficial. This wasn't a hard impact, cable just got pulled against the arm, but thought id get others consensus while I wait to hear back from Sram.

Lesson for the day, don't ride over wires

Definitely trashed. Fortunately, I run an extremely small non-profit bike parts organization that ensures these types of things are recycled correctly to reduce cycling’s impact on the environment. I’ll pm you a PO Box you cand send them to for proper disposal ;)

trashed
that has many new crack propagation points now

that has issues

should be replaced

....I'd opt for new cranks

you know, it may be fine, but guesswork is not my cup o tea if it were me

edit: likely fine since cranks are super thick
