    Durability of Bontrager Race X Lite Carbon Crankset

    Does anyone have experience with the Bontrager Race X Lite Carbon Cranks? How durable are they? I'm an East Coast rider and my local trails are very rocky. I'm not someone that is typically hard on equipment, but usually over a couple of riding seasons the finish gets worn off the tips of my crank arms from hitting rocks that I didn't see. How impact resistant are the carbon fibers, especially on the tips of the crank arms?

    these cranks have replacable metal caps over the tip of the crank arm to protect them, they're help on by the pedal, they ride nice and smooth, stiff but a little heavy.
