Shimano Deore crankset FC-M6000-3 - now with Hollowtech II construction
With the Deore FC-M6000-3 Shimano has for the first time presented a crankset with Hollowtech II design on the Deore level. This ensures a balance between the stiffness and strength of the construction on the one hand and the weight on the other. The aluminium crank has become slimmer than the predecessor model and is reminiscent of the SLX FC-M7000 introduced a year earlier. Deore FC-M6000-3 is still compatible with 10-speed drivetrains. The all-round crank with three chainrings presents itself as a solid choice for all MTB styles from Cross Country to All Mountain.

What matters is the overall balance of the crankset. With regard to the entire crankset, an optimum ratio between the strength of the crank arms, the stiffness of the axle, the bearing position and other features is very important. During the development of the crankset, the overall balance of all individual elements was carefully considered in order to ensure maximum stability.
Outer bearing: On most 68 mm bottom bracket housings, the Hollowtech II 24 mm axle can be mounted outside the frame for better weight distribution and stability.
High-quality precision seals: The Hollowtech II set also features high quality precision seals in the bearing area to extend durability and maintain excellent rotation efficiency over time.
The axle and the 24 mm diameter bearings ensure optimum balance of the crankset and optimum transmission of power to the bicycle.
