Spotted on a new Santa Cruz Nomad, these updated SIXC cranks feature new graphics, and utilize the modular Cinch System. The system allows you to easily interchange single, double, and even triple rings, in addition to swapping out different spindles.
The existing SIXC cranks are rated for everything from AM to DH abuse, so with a quick spindle change, you’ll be able to mount them to almost any bike in your fleet.

The carbon arms are protected by a removal vinyl decal, which will help prevent cosmetic wear marks.
We spotted these prototype SIXC cranks a few months ago, but couldn’t pry any details out at the time (not even with beer and whiskey, we tried…)
Claimed weight for the current generation is 650g (with a 36T chainring and 83mm spindle), and retail is $599 with a single ring, or $649 with a 24/36/bash. No word on if pricing or weight has dropped when they’re officially released, so stay tuned to RaceFace for more info.
