Shimano XTR M970 Triple Chainset

Since its introduction, XTR has held true to its original design philosophy of delivering top-level performance in a lightweight, beautifully-engineered package. For 2006, XTR raises the bar again – by reducing complete group weight by almost a pound, increasing stiffness & strength, and delivering even more durability. When combined with innovative new features, XTR delivers the ultimate riding experience.

Incorporating the benefit of rigidity with minimal weight of the Hollowtech II combined bottom bracket and crankset system, the new FC-M970 manages to drop even more weight while increasing shifting performance and durability

Features:

  • Class-leading XTR chainset, integrating the bottom bracket and chainset into a strong, rigid, yet lightweight unit
  • Integrated design makes installation and adjustments easier than ever
  • Precision bottom bracket bearings are spaced further apart, and are therefore more stable and longer lasting than conventional bottom brackets
  • Super-lightweight HollowTech II forged Duralumin crank arms - hollow design saves weight whilst increasing rigidity
  • Silvercrank arm face for lasting good looks
  • Easy to use splined Octalink bottom bracket spindle connection provides a rigid and secure interface between crank and spindle
  • The middle chainring is made of titanium supported in a carbon shell which combine to produce a hard-wearing, light weight, and stiff set up
  • Development has resulted in stiffer, light weight and hard-wearing HyperDrive 7075 aluminium outer and inner chainrings with a highly durable Nickel-plate treatment
  • Chainrings:104 / 64 PCD four-arm
  • For use with Super Narrow HG chain
  • Average weight: 747 g (175 mm including BB)
  • Please note: BB included
  • BB Shell: 68/73mm

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 32 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Light and strong. Tools for instalations is in the box. Easy to install. The XTR is much much better than a the XT. 06 August 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by meh they work excellent in all conditions iv'e got this chainset on my scott ransom superb shifting with the xtr front derailiuer im running. One problem though its more my fault than shimanos i have just broken the outer chainring after crashing into a tree, but these were not made for DH so my bad. 21 June 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent product, worth the investment Bought this chainset a month or so ago and only just got round to testing it out properly. Fitted it to a 2001 Klein Attitude with all new components and currently running it 8-speed with M970 front and rear mechs. Took it out all day in the snow and was deliberately quite hard on it (shifting under load etc.) and it handled is beautifully. Wasn't bothered about snow at all. It's as light as most carbon cranksets, cheaper and a bit more confidence-inspiring, being made of metal. Yes, it's expensive but you get what you pay for. Not looking forward to the expense of replacing the middle chainring but then again, it should last quit well with the amount of miles I do these days. Buy it with confidence, superb product. 21 December 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by XTR Crankset - solid piece I have been running XTR cranks on most of my non-DH rigs. The oldest has survived 3 years of ham fisted wrenching by me and numerous nasty hits/cased landings. They have been so though that sometimes I wonder why I use Saint on the big bike. The rings are much better than 960s and the shifting is the best I have ridden, though I have not tried XX yet. They are spendy, but you pay for light and strong. 10 April 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Performance! Outstanding endurance, quality and stiffness. I would say (for now) that the XTR is the ultimate compromise, when it comes to MTB cranks for XC/ AM biking 08 April 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by the best gear, what can I add? Light , strong...does the job 08 April 2010
Rated 3 out of 5 by XTR crank no Tool Great product and price. Think the price is so low as it never came with the tool to put on the crankset with. Wish this information was provided. Hard to install without the tool. Maybe it doesn't come standard with this gen XTR my last one came with one ? Was expecting it to come in the Shimano box also, but did not. The crank itself came in good condition. 12 March 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Hard wearing, perfect shifting, light I have been running this chainset for 2 years now. rings are still in good condition, no sharktoothing or obvious wear. They have taken a lot of muddy riding, 3 winters and still shift perfectly and show no signs of needing replaced. With Middleburn rings i would replace a set a year, with old XT i would replace once every 6 months. 18 February 2010

What does the Option "68/73mm BB Shell No Bolt" mean? I am looking to buy the 175 mm version of this Chainset. What does it come with? I assume it comes with a Bottom Bracket and installation tools.
Thanks,

Answer: 
The 68/73mm means the bottom bracket supplied will work with either a 68mm or 73mm frame bottom bracket shell. Spacers are provided to fit either width.

The chainset will come with both crank arms, chainrings and bottom bracket.

These sets do not come with installation tool or pre-load bolt. The items required are shown below.

Installation of Hollowtech Shimano cranksets is very straight forward and detailed in the supplied instructions.
