Descendant DH BB30 Direct Mount Crankset by TruVativ
Last season was a rough one on your bike, and it's in need of a little TLC before it'll be up to shred standards anytime soon. Fortunately, this year marks the revamp of Truvativ's well-loved Descendant cranksets, and the Descendant DH BB30 Direct Mount Crankset blends a budget-appeasing price tag with the kind of DH burliness that's earned the Descendant it's impassioned following over the years. An updated construction and sleeker aesthetics bring the Descendant skidding artfully into the present, but the otherwise solid design continues its legacy as a crankset you can put your faith in when you head to the summit. 7000-series aluminum allows parent company SRAM to give the Descendant DH the rigidity it needs to stay in one piece when taking hits that would shatter a lesser design. By trusting a solid, rather than hollow, construction, Truvativ added stiffness without significantly adding weight. Plus, this version's clean direct mount ring cleans up the interface and eliminates added bulk in the form of bolts. As it's a complete crankset, the Descendant DH now comes with a 34t X-SYNC chainring, complete with the renowned X-SYNC tooth profile. In case you've missed the hype, the offbeat shaping of X-SYNC's squared-off teeth grab onto your chain and refuse to let go, guiding it loyally and quietly along as you rally over the big stuff. And in case you're still holding onto fresh memories of bashing a chainring the wrong way against a rock last season, the Descendant DH is compatible with a bash guard to help protect it against meeting an untimely end.
