    Details

    The Race Face Crank Boots offer an attractive and affordable solution to protecting your favorite cranks from the inevitable bashing and smashing incurred by riding through rough terrain and rock gardens. Crank Boots are especially useful with low-slung trail rigs, as the lower bottom bracket leaves less pedal and crank clearance over rough, boulder-strewn trails. They're also essential to protecting your pricey carbon cranks from unsightly scuffs and scratches.

    G4 boots very cheap - just don't protect

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The G4 boots shred through (and often become dislodged / flop around) almost immediately upon any pedal strike. The boots are also hard to find online. I've been through three pairs of boots in one year and would have used three more if I hadn't been trying to save the extortion money. Like another reviewer, I contacted RF directly. They have improved the toughness slightly but they have a long way to go. I can't understand why RF would taint an otherwise great product with this poor accessory. My one year old $400 carbon crank arms look more like two or three year olds. Have your electrical tape ready to reinforce these things and get a few extra hours out of them.

    Necessity for carbon mountain cranks

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I'd advise putting these on any carbon mountain crankset for protection against rock strikes. The Next SL/SixC variant fits SRAM Eagle and Truvativ Descendant cranks.

    Super simple idea that works

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These have saved my cranks from so many rock gouges, they do their job and when I go to sell my bike, my cranks don't look like I've put the abuse on my bike that I have... ;)

    Use Protection

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Always use protection when you spend extra on those fancy carbon cranks. These will help when you undoubtably strike some rocks while getting gnarly on the trail. Better safe than sorry!

    Safe and Sound.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Did you just spend a pretty penny for carbon Raceface cranks? Do you rock strike all the time like me? Do you want to have to buy new cranks cause you didn't want to put booties on? If not, I'd throw a pair of these on.

    Usually the cranks come with booties, but if not or you want to bling your bike out with some color, these are a cheap way to keep them safe. Pay attention to the model, it can make a difference on compatibility. If you have any questions, feel free to call my direct line 801.204.4547 or email me at cojohnson@backcountry.com

    Safe and Sound.

    Protect your cranks

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Be sure to shell out a few extra bucks to protect your expensive next SL cranks. Definitely worth it to ensure maximum longevity of your crank arms. Pedal strikes and crank strikes are inevitable.

    Cover 'em up!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This is the best way to make those expensive carbon cranks last longer and look better! Nobody likes to smash their cranks into a rock, and this is the best way to circumvent such a catastrophe. Well worth the money!

    Does what it says on the tin.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I use these boots (black colour) on my cross bike to protect my power meter (as much as possible). I have a Quarq meter on 1x as a point of reference.
    *Fit is spot on - they're nice and snug.
    *Protection works well as the rubber is thick enough to protect even from tough whacks.
    A simple and effective little product.

    G4 boots could use some re-engineering

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    The new crank boots for the Next G4 cranks are made of a different, much weaker material than those for the prior generation Next/SixC and those for alloy cranks. I had a set of Turbine cranks with corresponding boots that were made of a dense, plastic-like material and they lasted over a year with minimal wear. Since changing to the G4 boots for my new cranks, I seem to punch a hole in the thin, rubbery material almost every ride, necessitating a new pair at least monthly if I want them to protect my cranks.

    Raceface has made an incredible crank in the G4, but these boots have fallen short and would have been easy to make more durable.

    I am going to attempt to cobble together a way to use the older boots from now on.

    Good Quality, double check the size

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Great product but is to big for Alloy crank. I bought for my Tallboy C S with alloy race face. Seems they fit greaton carbon cranks

    Always use protection

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    If you have a nice set of carbon cranks you're going to want to keep them looking fresh. These booties are the best tool for the job. They install easily and with abundant color options you can add a little color to your ride.

    I purchased the Next SL/SixC model for my X01 Eagle cranks. They fit well and look great. Keep in mind that if your cranks barely clear your rear chainstay these may not work on your bike.

    Highly Recommended

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    If you have carbon cranks, then you are going to want these. You may think you don't at first and think you never clip you crank arms on rocks. Just wait, it will happen, and you will wish you had bought these. Save your cranks!! Super easy to install.

    Must Have For Carbon Cranks

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I bought these to put on my X01 Eagle Cranks and they fit perfectly! I purchased the Next SL/SixC version to fit my cranks. If you have carbon cranks then these are a must have. A cheap fix to keep your cranks looking brand new!

    I got them in turquoise to match my new Yeti, however it is not a perfect match in color. Close enough to keep rocking them though! That is the only reason I gave them a 4 star review.

    Rock Stike Away

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    If you have carbon cranks, you need these. They look great in every shade of black and feel free to go crazy with the colors if you want to match everything up for some added flare. Simple design and brilliant product; now if the crank companies could just provide these already on their cranks... that would be wonderful.

    Unanswered Question

    Which one of the two fits a shimano M627 crank? The one for G4 or the one for NEXT?

    Will these fit the Shimano XT 8000 cranks?

    Hey Peter - These Crank Boots should work with your Shimano XT 8000 crank according to Race Face ("Fit most other popular alloy MTB cranksets"). Feel free to contact me directly with any additional questions.
