The sticker on the stealth black box of this Race Face Six C Chainset says ‘Made in Canada’. Vancouver, Canada to be precise, HQ to RaceFace and a manufacturing and development base for their premium components. With most brands churning out their wares in the Far East, it is refreshing to see in-house production on some specialist hardware.
Raceface have been a key brand in after-market chainsets, cranks and chainrings since the early days, with their Northshore location giving a reassuring pedigree to the products.
“Raceface have been a key brand for chainsets since the early days and the carbon SixC is a truly specialist piece of kit”
This revised SixC chainset is a truly specialist piece of kit, ‘the lightest DH rated carbon crank on the market’ is how RF describe it. Take a look at the evolution of downhill cranks from Raceface… first up the North Shores, then Diablous, Atlas FR and now the amazing SixC model. Destruction tests have shown these carbon cranks to be stronger than all their previous ‘gravity rated’ products yet lighter than many XC cranks.
