Shimano Dura-Ace FC-9000 11-Speed Crankset $599.95
The total package.
11-speeds? Absolutely. Lighter weight? You got it. The marriage between a standard and compact crankset? Amen. The Shimano Dura-Ace FC-9000 11-Speed Crankset has once again revolutionized the market through common sense design that, for one reason or another, no one else has attempted. Finally, we can run either compact or standard rings on one spider, and even better, FC-9000 hasn't compromised a thing. In fact, it's lighter, just as stiff, and sleeker than 7900. Beauty and intelligence -- the total package.
Easily, Dura-Ace 9000's most striking and recognizable feature is the FC-9000 crankset -- and this is for good reason. On the surface, the FC-9000 is a complete departure from the traditional aesthetics of Dura-Ace. Gone are the days of the five-arm spider, and the necessity for a separate compact crankset has also fallen by the wayside. Instead, 9000 features a shift to a new four-arm spider design. This occured for many reasons, but most notably, it's because the four-arm spider matches rigidity with 7900 while shaving around 52 grams. However, 9000 has more than meets the eye. Like 7900, you'll find the continuation of Shimano's Hollowtech II construction. Over the past few iterations of Dura-Ace, this manufacturing methodology has played an integral role in attaining weight reduction without sacrificing Dura-Ace's superior stiffness.
It's this balance of Shimano practicing tried-and-true forging methods, while still treading into unknown waters, that makes Dura-Ace more of a continuation than an innovation. We mean this in the best possible way. Shimano has learned what works, and over the years, has continually added to, and improved, the ideology of Dura-Ace. Hollowtech II and Hollowglide are prime examples of this. Strategic placement of hollow aluminum throughout the crankset and chainrings allows more structural material to be used, and when coupled with Shimano's integrated bottom bracket, creates an unrivaled weight-to-stiffness ratio.
The four-arm spider amplifies this characteristic, but more important to Shimano, it embodies its 'rider-tuned' philosophy. In this, Shimano created 9000 to work for you, the rider. Case in point, the four-arm design and the 'top-secret' BCD allows for front chainring combinations from 50-34 to 55-42t on the same spider. Also new to this year, Shimano will be offering the crankset in a press-fit option.
The Shimano Dura-Ace FC-9000 11-Speed Crankset is available in sizes 170, 172.5, and 175mm and in 50-34, 52-36, and 53-39 chainring options.

I'm looking at buying a frame with a BB386....
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?

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 :)
Can you use this with a Dura-Ace 9 Speed?...
Can you use this with a Dura-Ace 9 Speed? I want a power meter and a new crank (running a FSA K Force) and this would be a nice upgrade until I am ready to go full 11 speed.
I wouldn't use this with a 9-speed, too many compatibility issues with the chain and derailleur. Would be legit to just wait - then pick up a screaming deal from Competitive when there is a super sale. Your 9-speed group as a whole will shift and perform better than a mis-matched group. :)
Stiff. So peppy and responsive.

So I never thought I could swap out a part on my bike and feel immediately shocked. This crank did it though. I had just come from a 7800 Dura-Ace SRM crank, when I went to a Stages Power meter version of this Dura-Ace 9000. The quickness and stiffness of the arms was immediately shocking in my first turn and acceleration out of the neighborhood on my first ride. Months later, I still remember the sensation of me looking down in wonderment at my bottom bracket and crank, wondering what on earth could cause what felt like, a 300% boost in crank stiffness. 1600 miles on it since march 2013.
does it come BB30
