The deformations of the cranksets are measured at three different places, important in the functionning and representative of the overall stiffness.
The deformation tests are performed with an extra load of 200lbs, on each crank arms. The chainring deformation is saved too, it is not very important but it may be useful for riders having
Briefly, the cranksets of the biggest manufacturers are all very stiff, and the differences between the formers are pretty small. The Sram Red is getting the best of this test, the FSA SL-K
