Utilising Open Core Technology, the OCT Chainset's crank arms are hollow-forged out of AL-6066 alloy for maximum strength and mount our new PowerGlide™ 10 speed chainrings.
The package, weighing only 791g, is finished off with SRAM's GXP™ bottom bracket, which has been designed to increase power transfer and rigidity while reducing component wear. For riders who want the power transfer and performance but don't demand the weight savings, SRAM offers the SRAM Rival chainset in a solid-core version.
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.
