When we’re looking for a bike product an impressive strength to weight ratio is always high on the wish list, after all we don’t want kit to break, but on the other hand we want our bikes to be as light as possible. The old saying goes; strong, light, cheap…pick two. So yeah, you can’t have it all, but if you have got the money then we think these Race Face SixC cranks are unbeatable when it comes to their strength to weight ratio. You’ll struggle to find many high–end XC cranks that are lighter than these, yet we’d be more than happy to use a set on our DH bike. They’re impressive to say the least. Throw in one of Race Face’s ‘Narrow Wide’ rings and you’ve got one hell of a set–up.

Price: £529.00

If you’ve decided to run a 1×9/10/11 set–up on your trail bike then you’re probably going to want to run some kind of chain guide. I say probably because the introduction of ‘narrow/wide’ chainrings has meant that you can now get away without running anything in most situations, but if you’re going down the chain guide route then all you really need is a top guide like this one. Yes you could run a full one for ultimate chain security, but then it wouldn’t be silent and drag–free like one of these.

This XCX+ is our favourite of its type firstly because it is available in a huge range of different mounting options, so you can always find one to fit, and secondly because it’s so well made and easy to use.

Price: £44.95 – £89.95
