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.

Will these work with RaceFace Turbine cranks?

Unanswered Question

so is it known that these don't work on sram xo eagle with the Race Face Atlas flat pedals? This pedal has almost no gap to crank arm face and it's less gap than the thickness of the boot. Feeling either idiotic for missiing something but posting so others can be sure not to make same mistake. It's either a proprietary issue with pedal mount to crank or what? My Time Atac for example would be just fine because their pedal axle mounting facing is smaller diameter than the hole in the boot. I'd cut the boot but that will make it more susceptible to being torn off. :/

Next SL / Six C

    works for Sram XO and Descendants Carbon cranks!

    My cranks were getting all dinged up. But now I have this and no one can tell!

    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.

    Protection for those Carbon cranks

      Work great and saves the bottom of your cranks from those nasty rock hits.

      Everyone needs a little booty

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      These crank booty's are great. Should have bought previous years before I beat my old cranks so bad

      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.

      buy them first

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Easy to throw on, I should have put them on before the first ride on our bikes. Would have saved the ugly nicks.

      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!

      They work

        They work. Better than hearing your crank arm grind agains rocks.

        • 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.

        Crank Protection

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Super affordable way to keep your Cranks safe and lasting longer. especially good idea if you are running Carbon 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... ;)

        Look Fast- Go Fast!

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        The RaceFace booties: Just like the booties included on RaceFace carbon cranks, just with cool colors to make your bike look faster

        Function and Flare

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        Dress up that new crankset a bit and keep it safe at the same time.

        Add some color and protection

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I have SRAM X01 Eagle cranks and the Next SL/Sixc fit perfectly. Great way to add a bit of color while protecting your cranks!
