Advice From Our Staff:
If you are looking for an entry level crankset, but still want to know you’re riding a tried-and-true Praxis, this might be your crank. It’s not quite as light and snappy as some of the carbon cranks, but this second generation Cadet is perfect for all types of XC and trail riding.
Other Versions to Consider
Girder Crankset: If you are looking to shave a bit of weight, we might recommend the slightly nicer Praxis Girder MTB Crankset. It’s a bit more expensive, but features carbon crank arms which are lighter and stiffer than the alloy arms of the Cadet.
Cadet HD Crankset: We also sell the Praxis Cadet HD which is more of an Enduro crank. It’s very similar to the Cadet here, but features slightly beefed up 640-gram crank arms.
- Chainring/Power Meter: This crankset is compatible 3-bolt direct mount chainrings, as well as with the power2max Praxis MTB Power Meter
