It's about time.

After spending hours upon hours trying to figure out the smallest gear ratios that we can run on our cranksets to make it up the nearby Hors Categorie climbs, we are pleased that Shimano has just streamlined this process with its Dura-Ace FC-9000 11-Speed Crankset. This common-sense design means that you are able to run standard or compact gearing-off of the same spider. And it still features the stiff, sleek design that the top tier Dura-Ace is known for.

The Dura-Ace 9000 crankset takes shifting technology a bit further by employing 11-speeds in the design of the new four arm crankset. And while the old five-arm design was the standout aesthetic of the Dura-Ace line, the simplified design of the new spider commands as much attention. The "top secret" BCD allows for chainring configurations from 50/34 to 55/42tooth on the same spider. Now you're able to climb every mountain one week and ride for the land speed record the next-all without the hassle, and expense, of a separate crankset.

Like the 7900, the 9000 crankset was constructed using Shimano's tried and true Hollowtech II and Hollowglide methods. This involves aluminum to be placed throughout the crankset and chainrings in areas where the extra structure is optimized. While this is not a new technology for Shimano, they continue to innovate the process as well as the final designs. This method creates a high stiffness to weight ratio.

The Shimano Dura-Ace FC-9000 11-Speed Crankset is available in sizes 170, 172.5, and 175mm and in 50-34, 52-36, and 53-39 chainring options.

  • Lighter, stiffer four-arm spider design
  • 11-speed-specific shifting ramps
  • Compatible with Dura-Ace chainrings from 50-34 to 55-42

Unanswered Question

I want a 52/36 with a 165mm arm...

Hello, noob question here!

Do I need to purchase non-driving side arm separately or do they come together? Because I don't see it in the picture.... haha

Hey Yongjang K,

These cranks are sold as a set so you will get both the drive and non-drive side arms.

runnng a few odds and ends and really want an upgrade. rear mech is ultegra 6600, cassette is 13.28, front derailleur is 105, shifters are 105 and crankset is ultegra 6650 53.39t. rear shiting is ok but front rings really clacky to change. can i swap in this crankset with my current set up or do i need to change more?

It is not recommended from Shimano that you use 11 speed parts with 10 speed parts. We do have amazing pricing on a whole complete Ultegra 6800 group set that you might be better off doing a complete upgrade. If you have questions you can reach me at

Would it be possible to run a 53x34 or 52x34 without negatively impacting shifting performance?

With a little fine tuning you should be fine mating a 53 with a 36, but not a 34, it's just too long of a stretch for the front derailleur. You can also match a 52 with a 34. With either one it will not be quite as quick in your shift as with the stock set up.

I have Gen1 Di2 10sp on my Wilier Cento1. I want to have a compact setup. The obvious solution is to get the FC-7900 compact crank. I need this because the standard setup has 130 BCD and compact 110.

Now i see that the latest FC-9000 groupset crank works with a range of rings from compact up past standard.

i know its not ideal but, could i use the FC-9000 11-sp crankset on my bike and leave everything else on the old 10sp setup including the chain ( i can adjust derailleur height, chain, etc as required)? My BB came with the bike and is SHimano compatible pushfit bearings which Wilier calls CNC Oversize bottom bracket but is also known as BB94

What do you think?

According to Lennard Zinn, it will work best with an 11-speed chain. Dura-Ace chains can be found online for $40, so that is the smart way to do it.

Will this crankset work with a BB86 bottom bracket? I currently have a press fit BB86 and thought I needed to change it to use this crankset. I was reading about the Ultegra BB and it saying its a BB86 and will work with all HollowTech cranks. Thank you for clearing up my confusion.

Best Answer

It depends upon the exact type of bb86. if it is a gxp bb86 it wont work but if you have used existing shimano or FSA cranks with the bb it will work just fine.

I am buying a 2015 SL5 Tarmac and Shimano 9000 components.

I don't want to be changing from compact to regular cranks every time we go to the mountains.

Can I run a 53-34 chainring combination with the Shimano 9000 crankset?

Best Answer

Good question, the problem with the ration you want is that it is beyond 16 teeth difference it is 19 teeth difference. The Shimano road front derailleur's have a max difference of 16T so when we consider the ratio above it will not work because of the separation. If you have any other questions please email me directly at

Ive seen BH's bb386 EVO bike with this same shimano cranckset! you need the necesary adapters for shimano cranks...

Is it compatible with a Dura Ace 10 speed...

Is it compatible with a Dura Ace 10 speed groupset?

The Dura Ace 7900 crankset has been out of stock for months now...

Best Answer

Shimano told me that although not ideal it will work with their 10 speed systems. The difference being the chain rings on the 11 speed cranks are slightly narrower. I have been considering ordering the mid-compact crank for my 7800 Dura Ace bike.

No 52/38 offered?

No 52/38 is offered, you'll need to purchase the 38t separately and do the swap. I have almost 2k miles on a 52/38 setup and works very well.

Can I use this crank on ultegra 11 speed...

Can I use this crank on ultegra 11 speed di2 system?

Best Answer

Yes, 100% compatible with Ultegra 11.

is this compatible with Ultegra 6700...

is this compatible with Ultegra 6700 derailleurs?

Best Answer

Should be OK, not perfect, as the ramps are different - therefor if you are using an Ultegra 6700 chain as well, could cause some crappy shifting under load. If you are going to get this, awesome - but I would go with a new 6800 chain first. Again, should work, but now as well as it could :)

Can you use this with a Dura-Ace 9 Speed?...

Can you use this with a Dura-Ace 9 Speed? I want a power meter and a new crank (running a FSA K Force) and this would be a nice upgrade until I am ready to go full 11 speed.

Best Answer

I wouldn't use this with a 9-speed, too many compatibility issues with the chain and derailleur. Would be legit to just wait - then pick up a screaming deal from Competitive when there is a super sale. Your 9-speed group as a whole will shift and perform better than a mis-matched group. :)


Stiff. So peppy and responsive.

  • Gender:Male
  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

So I never thought I could swap out a part on my bike and feel immediately shocked. This crank did it though. I had just come from a 7800 Dura-Ace SRM crank, when I went to a Stages Power meter version of this Dura-Ace 9000. The quickness and stiffness of the arms was immediately shocking in my first turn and acceleration out of the neighborhood on my first ride. Months later, I still remember the sensation of me looking down in wonderment at my bottom bracket and crank, wondering what on earth could cause what felt like, a 300% boost in crank stiffness. 1600 miles on it since march 2013.

Hi, I have a "Specialized s work Rouber s4" is it possible to use this set? Thanks for the reply.

does it come BB30

Best Answer

Doesn't come in a BB30, but you can get adapters and they work well. The Wheels Mfg is the best, without creaks or issues :)
