The main benefits of the hollow carbon construction are simple: Stiffness and weight savings. You'll also feel zero crank flex. Fitted to the arms are a pair of Semi solid AL7075 100% CNC process chainrings secured by AL7075 Torx T-30 alloy chainring bolts.
The SL-K uses a MegaExo bottom bracket which is built with hardened steel ball bearings instead of the ceramic hybrid bearings of the K-Force Light, this helps reduce the cost of the overall system but allows for an upgrade to the Ceramic version at a later date. Q-factor remains narrow at 145mm and a chainline of 44mm means smooth shifting with 9 or 10 speed Sram, Shimano drivetrains.
Your chainset must fit onto your bottom bracket! There are currently four chainset/bottom bracket interfaces that you're likely to come across. If your bottom bracket is made by Shimano and it has splines, then you need an Octalink chainset. If your b/b is NOT made by Shimano and it has splines, it's almost certainly ISIS. There are a very few non-Shimano chainsets with Shimano Octalink interfaces so, to be sure, count the splines - ISIS has 9, Octalink has (surprise, surprise) 8. No matter which brand of b/b you have, if it has a square interface, it will require a traditional square taper chainset. If you have one of the new Hollowtech II systems, you will need to choose the exact chainset that matches your bottom bracket. Most MTB chainsets are now 9-speed compatible but these will work with an 8-speed system.

The gaint frame has a bottom bracket width of 86.5mm and an ID of 41mm if that helps?!
This should offer you compatibility with almost any Shimano chainset.
