Shimano 105 FC-5800 11-Speed Crankset

11 clicks of awesome.

The new 11-speed Shimano 105 group is a huge leap forward from the previous 10-speed family, narrowing the gap to its higher-cost siblings Ultegra and Dura-Ace down to a mere sliver. The 105 FC-5800 11-Speed Crankset gives you oodles of performance and gets the drivetrain rolling without draining your bank account.

This crankset is lighter and stiffer than previous models, featuring a new, eye-catching 4-bolt spider and chainring configuration with carbide construction to increase shifting precision and power transfer. Pairing all that function with its overall sleek design means you'll get down the road fast and look good while you're at it.

Hard to beat, especially for the $$$

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Unless you're a severe weight weenier, or have to have a :::slightly::: more attractive crankset, the 105 is as good as it gets.
The rings will wear long and strong and the shifting is plenty smooth.
This is an excellent option for Cross bikes, and Gravel Grinders too, as you wont' be beating up an expensive piece and the rings are affordable enough to have a few ratios on hand.

Great Crankset

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Bought the 175mm 52x36 combined with an 11-32 cassette makes it perfect.

With bigger chainrings (I was on 50x34) I feel I can get more speed with a lower cadence. This will make it hard on the hills, but having the 11-28 cassette helps with that.

Keep on Pedaling!

    THe 105's last forever! Sure they are a bit heavier but i don't care as it is on my commuting bike. Love Shimanos products. High quality, smooth and keeps you spinning all day long!

    105 = Awesome

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I bought this crank as part of a 105 groupset to put on a spare frame I had laying around. I decided to go with 105 because the 105 has had a history of being Shimano's workhorse group and this 11 speed group is priced great, which leaves money for wheels or cockpit parts. Every component within the group got a good upgrade and resembles features found on the higher priced 11 speed Dura-Ace and Ultegra groups. The 105 groupset also allows for a pretty easy gear configuration if you're interested too (11/32 cassette, long cage rear derailleur & a 50/34 crank). If you're on a budget or want a group for a training bike, the 105 11-speed group is no-brainer option.

    Heavy duty, smooth shifing, stiff, reasonable price. Great all rounder especially on a budget.

    The black powder coat seems to come off overtime especially when you get derailed.

    Underrated performer

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    If you're on a budget but need a quality groupset, 105 is great stuff. It looks awesome in black and functions at 98% of it's more expensive cousins. There's a weight penalty with 105 for sure but the value is impossible to beat.

    Awesome crank for a newbie

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I am not in a position to pony up for a top end drive train. This is perfect though for what I hope to be a year round commute. The crank is solid, the chain rings are nicely geared and it'll stand up to crap weather and abuse. I ride terrible roads and will put a lot of wear and tear on the bike in the next couple of years. The 105 should live up to the challenge.

    works great, just heavier than dura ace

    shifts awesome, stiff, relatively light

    will shimano 105 fc-5800 11 speed crankset work with kestrel 105 legend road bike. it now has oval concept 520 compact 52/36t that I want to upgrade

    Rommel, Your bottom bracket is probably a BB30. So with adpaters, this crankset will work.

    Unanswered Question

    does this crank works with BB86 bottom bracket? Fuji SST 1.3

    Will this crank work with my 105 5700 FD, RD and chain?

    There shouldn't be any big issues, you may get some slight chain rub as this is meant for 11 speed chains. But it will work with a proper installation.
