FSA Energy MegaExoThe FSA Energy MegaExo compact crankset is a mid-level crankset that’s priced on par with Shimano 105 or SRAM Rival. The Energy crank features hollow forged aluminum cranks arms for reduced weight, CNC machined chainrings and is designed to work with the FSA MegaExo external bearing bottom bracket system. This new version of the crankset is tuned to function best with 10 speed drivetrains.

The look of the FSA Energy crankset is fairly generic, but not unappealing. A black anodized finish is paired with white and red FSA graphics and some silver detailing. Stiffness is similar to other alloy cranksets in this price range and the overall weight with BB comes in at a very respectable 780 grams. That’s not super-light, but very good for a non-carbon crankset.

Many riders like the MegaExo bottom bracket for it’s easy installation and oversized cartridge bearings. However, some riders have complained about overall durability. Torque requirements printed on the crankset are a nice feature and a good reminder not to over or under tighten.

    Bought one of these on eBay last year and it seems to be a solid component. Didn’t have much trouble with the bottom bracket and it shifts smooth with the Ultegra 6750 group. I’ve had good luck with FSA products. Hope this one doesn’t disappoint.
