    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.

    Easy Install, Peace of Mind

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These booties are super easy to install and will give you some peace of mind when your pedal stroke isn't quit timed right and you are scraping plastic off instead of carbon.

    Great!

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    I rigged up my Mach 5.5 with the Sixc crankset and wasted no time putting these crank boots on to keep my rig safe from the inevitable pedal check or two.

    Hulk Smash!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    A must have if you're running a carbon crank, or even if you're not. These gems have been slapped around from rock face to rock face all over Utah, and always come back for more. The best part is taking them off, and seeing my crank completely unharmed!

    Easy to install for some more protection

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I had these recommended to me by a friend and I'm glad that I got them! They were super easy to install and they have already saved me on a couple pedal strikes! Can't go wrong with these booties!

    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!

    Unanswered Question

    I have the Easton Sl Carbon Cranks on my 1x drive train for my trail bike. Does anyone know which fit, the Next Sl or G4 would best fit my cranks? Thanks!

    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.
