Eleven speeds, four arms, endless options.
Shimano’s new Dura-Ace 9000 got a lot of press for a lot of reasons: the jump to 11-speed, the gorgeous design, the new lever ergonomics, but perhaps more than anything for the crankset and its all-new, four-arm spider.
It’s great to look at, but what’s so great about a proprietary (and heretofore secret) BCD? No need to buy a compact crankset. With the Dura-Ace 9000 crankset, you can run anything from a 50-34 combo to a 55-42 just by swapping chainrings and moving your derailleur (probably swapping chains, too). Effectively, this means your bike can be a TT ride one weekend, and a hill climb champ the next. It’s a little more work, but if you’re a privateer racer, or an enthusiast on a budget, it makes a lot of sense.
- The key component in Shimano's top-tier racing drivetrain
- New spider design matches stiffness while shedding grams
- Hollow sections reduce weight without compromising efficiency
- Universal BCD accepts compact, semi-compact, and standard rings
- Shimano's flagship drivetrain is widely celebrated for the smoothest shifting in the industry
- Q & A
Is this crank set compatible with a 10 speed group set? I am looking to swap a cr 7900 series with this. Thanks,
Could I fit this in a Masi CXGR frame?
Yes this would work on the Masi CXGR frame. you would just need to get the appropriate bottom bracket which would be: http://www.competitivecyclist.com/shimano-dura-ace-bb-r9100-bottom-bracket

Expensive....but worth it!
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Lets face it, cyclists love bling factor. Not only are these bling, they are second to none as far as stiffness, light weight, and function. I love that the cranks are very customizeable, you can put just about any size of chain ring on them (as long as they are the same bolt diameter pattern) put a 36T ring on there to help ya get over that steep mountain pass...put a 53 on there for hauling booty in the local road race. I love mine, you will love yours!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
My bike came with a mid-compact set up which is the best for your all-around gearing needs. But for someone 200lbs, climbing 2k - 5k elevation gain becomes a bit more of a challenge, especially if you like to spin at high rpm's. So I called up and ordered the compact cranks and customer service shipped same day and covered my 2day shipping to guarantee I would receive before the weekend.
If anyone is wondering the 11-28 is a great pair d with the compact. Today I ordered from CC a 12-28 cassette to give me back the 16.
Dura Ace quality can't be beat

Switched to this crank and chainset from BB30(PF30 actually) Hollowgram SI and Spidering because of astonishingly bad creak issues with Cannondale's bottom bracket solution. Just got tired of having to take everything apart and re-grease/re-locktite the cups and bearings to keep things running smoothly. So I went to this and Kogel bearings adapters and I could not be more pleased. A great way to run Shimano's 24mm standard on BB30 frames. The crank is super stiff, the weight is competitively low, and the chainrings make front shifting THAT much better. Even though Spiderings are renowned for their stiffness, Dura-Ace is just better. Not to mention being able to swap every imaginable combination of tooth sizes on the same crank and spider is a great thing to have.
I have a Guru Photon SL with a PF30 BB. Will this dura ace crankset work with that? What BB fitting do I need to buy with this crankset to use it on the Guru frame mentioned?
I know of a couple more options: 1) the adaptor kit from Wheels manufacturing. You continue to use your sealed bearings. The adapters slide in on both sides and convert your 30 into the 24mm in order to use the shimano cranks. The kit comes with the shims too. 2) CC sells a whole new bearing and sleeve from Rotor. Again adapting the 30 to 24mm. Check and see if cc has the steel bearing setup since the ceramic bearing setup is awfully expensive.
I want a 52/36 with a 165mm arm...
Why is the 165mm not on sale!
Hello, noob question here!
Do I need to purchase non-driving side arm separately or do they come together? Because I don't see it in the picture.... haha
Hey Yongjang K,
These cranks are sold as a set so you will get both the drive and non-drive side arms.
runnng a few odds and ends and really want an upgrade. rear mech is ultegra 6600, cassette is 13.28, front derailleur is 105, shifters are 105 and crankset is ultegra 6650 53.39t. rear shiting is ok but front rings really clacky to change. can i swap in this crankset with my current set up or do i need to change more?
It is not recommended from Shimano that you use 11 speed parts with 10 speed parts. We do have amazing pricing on a whole complete Ultegra 6800 group set that you might be better off doing a complete upgrade. If you have questions you can reach me at email@example.com
Would it be possible to run a 53x34 or 52x34 without negatively impacting shifting performance?
With a little fine tuning you should be fine mating a 53 with a 36, but not a 34, it's just too long of a stretch for the front derailleur. You can also match a 52 with a 34. With either one it will not be quite as quick in your shift as with the stock set up.
I have Gen1 Di2 10sp on my Wilier Cento1. I want to have a compact setup. The obvious solution is to get the FC-7900 compact crank. I need this because the standard setup has 130 BCD and compact 110.
Now i see that the latest FC-9000 groupset crank works with a range of rings from compact up past standard.
i know its not ideal but, could i use the FC-9000 11-sp crankset on my bike and leave everything else on the old 10sp setup including the chain ( i can adjust derailleur height, chain, etc as required)? My BB came with the bike and is SHimano compatible pushfit bearings which Wilier calls CNC Oversize bottom bracket but is also known as BB94
What do you think?
According to Lennard Zinn, it will work best with an 11-speed chain. Dura-Ace chains can be found online for $40, so that is the smart way to do it.
Will this crankset work with a BB86 bottom bracket? I currently have a press fit BB86 and thought I needed to change it to use this crankset. I was reading about the Ultegra BB and it saying its a BB86 and will work with all HollowTech cranks. Thank you for clearing up my confusion.
It depends upon the exact type of bb86. if it is a gxp bb86 it wont work but if you have used existing shimano or FSA cranks with the bb it will work just fine.

I am buying a 2015 SL5 Tarmac and Shimano 9000 components.
I don't want to be changing from compact to regular cranks every time we go to the mountains.
Can I run a 53-34 chainring combination with the Shimano 9000 crankset?
Good question, the problem with the ration you want is that it is beyond 16 teeth difference it is 19 teeth difference. The Shimano road front derailleur's have a max difference of 16T so when we consider the ratio above it will not work because of the separation. If you have any other questions please email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org

I have the FSA Gossamer BB30 10sp with Chimano 105. Can exchange the FSA for Shimano Dura-Ace 9000 ?
You will need adapters. You can get them from any online Seller.
Get a Praxis Conversion BB. Better option than using adaptors
Can I put a Dura Ace 9000 11speed 36t chain...
Can I put a Dura Ace 9000 11speed 36t chain ring on my Ultegra 6800 11speed crank?
yes you definitely can

I'm looking at buying a frame with a BB386. Will I be able to mount an FC9000 crank on my ride? Can't seem to find the answer on the Shimano site. Thanks!
Ive seen BH's bb386 EVO bike with this same shimano cranckset! you need the necesary adapters for shimano cranks...
Is it compatible with a Dura Ace 10 speed...
Is it compatible with a Dura Ace 10 speed groupset?
The Dura Ace 7900 crankset has been out of stock for months now...
Shimano told me that although not ideal it will work with their 10 speed systems. The difference being the chain rings on the 11 speed cranks are slightly narrower. I have been considering ordering the mid-compact crank for my 7800 Dura Ace bike.
No 52/38 offered?
No 52/38 offered?
No 52/38 is offered, you'll need to purchase the 38t separately and do the swap. I have almost 2k miles on a 52/38 setup and works very well.
Can I use this crank on ultegra 11 speed...
Can I use this crank on ultegra 11 speed di2 system?
Yes, 100% compatible with Ultegra 11.
is this compatible with Ultegra 6700...
is this compatible with Ultegra 6700 derailleurs?
Should be OK, not perfect, as the ramps are different - therefor if you are using an Ultegra 6700 chain as well, could cause some crappy shifting under load. If you are going to get this, awesome - but I would go with a new 6800 chain first. Again, should work, but now as well as it could :)
