    Lowest Q-factor outboard cranks in 180mm?

    I'm upping my crank length to 180mm for fit reasons, and would like to lessen my q-factor in the process if possible. I currently have 175mm XT's in the standard 44/32/22 (new outboard bearing type). I have been very happy with them overall. I do feel, however, that my feet are splayed out quite wide. Are there any other cranks available in 180mm that have a lower Q-factor? Somebody mentioned Race Face Atlas or Deus to me. I don't, however, know much about their reliability or design. I have also looked at Truvativ (possibly same q factor as Shimano) and FSA (no 180mm cranks). Any other ideas?

    Just found this in an older thread...

    Truvative Stylo GXP 168mm Q-f
    04/05 Shimano XT 175mm Q-f


    I don't know what the Race Face comes in at.
