The classical 3x10-speed drive is still one of the versatile cranksets. And thanks to the "Smart Spindle System" allows the crank platform now installed in 11 different bottom bracket types!
The XM557 3X is the synthesis of the XM557 Basic cranks as a “carrier” (460 g) and a mounted 3x10-speed drive-train unit (from 135 g) and results at just 595 grams. The 3x10-speed chainrings have a BCD of 104/64 and a ratio of 20-32-42 or 22-32-44!

Smart Drive-Train Concept
B.O.R. provide a versatile usability of the crank. Even regular with a spider or "Plug and Play"- power measurement on the spider. Thus B.O.R cranks are “Power Meter-ready” and enable the simplified retrofitting of measuring units from SRM and Power2Max!
