The prices of road bike components can, at times, be a bit daunting. A crankset can run you a couple car payments or a month's mortgage and might not fit into the budget or slide past the spouse unnoticed. That's why there's Shimano 105. Make no mistake, this isn't budget gear. Its race-worthy equipment designed to be affordable, and since it benefits from Dura-Ace and Ultegra trickle-down technology, it doesn't compromise performance. While the Shimano 105 FC-R7000 Crankset tips the scales at around 100 grams more than its top-end sibling, it's still nowhere near what you'd call heavy. It also shifts with crispness so close to the higher level group that you won't believe that it's less than half the price. Shimano Hollowtech hollow crank arms reduce weight while adding stiffness for more direct power transfer and greater pedaling efficiency. The Hyperdrive 11-speed chainrings, when paired with Shimano's Dual SIS front index shifting, deliver instant, assertive shifts time and time again. Shimano has also increased the space between the large and small rings to reduce chain rub in the small-small gear and a chainline that's optimized for the dropout spacing and chainstay length associated with disc brake road bikes. The Shimano 105 FC 7000 Crankset is available in mid-compact and compact ring options with its asymmetric, 110mm bolt circle diameter. Both versions of this crankset can be had in 170, 172. 5, or 175mm lengths.
