Samox is making a big push into the world of high-end cranksets with their new Platinum line. Available in TM1 for Trail to Enduro use, or the DH1 for downhill, the cranks are made from carbon but with a focus on all-out durability. Samox is even backing up that claim with a no-questions-asked lifetime warranty on the cranks.

Meant for 11 or 12-speed 1x drivetrains with Boost hub spacing and 52mm chainline, the cranks will not include a chainring for the advertised price. A big selling point of the TM1 is that it will be offered in “sized for all”, with 145, 155, 160, 165, and 170mm crank lengths. With more and more mountain bikers going to shorter cranks, this will definitely be a big hit with those looking for shorter carbon options. The DH1 will only be offered in 155 or 160mm lengths.

Spec wise, the cranks take a page out of SRAM’s book with a DUB 28.99mm spindle, and a 3-bolt direct mount chainring interface. Weights are claimed to be 378g for the 160mm TM1 or 435g for the DH1, both without chainrings. Available directly or through stocking QBP dealers, pricing is currently set at $300 for the TM1 or $325 for the DH1.
