Sugino throws its hat in the 2x10 arena

The Sugino ZX801D MTB Crank

Pictures don't do these cranks justice, they are gorgeous!
Sugino's new CompactPlus+System adds some competition to a market that is currently dominated by SRAM and Shimano. Pictured above is the Sugino ZX801D MTB crank, we've also got the OX801D Compact Road crank...but we'll get to that later.

The Sugino ZX801D MTB Crank, our specs:
Its crank spider uses a more common 110bcd standard and the design promises a super low Q-factor. Grey arms with black chainrings. Here's the specs:
- 40/26t ramped and pinned aluminum chainrings (XTR is 40/28, Sugino makes this combo, too, but we currently only have 40/26t)
- 10 and 9 speed compatible (use a 10-speed chain for 10-spd components)
- 156mm Q-factor
- IDS24 24mm hollow CrMo BB axle
- Chainline: 48.5mm
- Weight: about 780g

The Sugino OX801D Compact Road Crank

The Sugino OX801D Compact Road Crank, we've got 6 different configurations of this beauty. Here are our specs, check it out on the official site too:

- 50-34t or 48-34t 7075 aluminum rings, 110 BCD
- This crank can also take a 74BCD ring (if you want to replace the 34t with
something smaller) w/o affecting Q-factor
- Cold-forged aluminum arms, silver anodized
- Low Q-factor of 145mm
- 2x9/2x10 compatibility (use a 10-spd chain with 10-spd components)
- IDS24: Lightweight oversized 24mm hollow CrMo BB axle
- Chainline: 43.5mm
- Weight: 787grams
