With the M7100 SLX crank, Shimano is taking a big step forward in several aspects. The most outstanding innovation: The M7100 is designed for direct mount chainrings. Thanks to the special DCE + Narrow Wide profile of the teeth and the Hyperglide + chain design, the 52 millimeter offset of the chainrings is suitable for both BOOST and standard rear hubs. Matching direct mount chainrings with 30 to 34 teeth are available.
When assembling the crank, Shimano continues to rely on the proven Hollowtech-2 technology with a 24 millimeter crankshaft. By optimizing the design of the current generation of cold-forged aluminum cranks, weight could be further saved and rigidity increased at the same time.
