    With money is no issue then I would go raceface. With that said sram is also a good brand and I've enjoyed my xx1.

    I run the RF Next SLs and like them a lot [light and tough], but they only come in 170 & 175 lengths AFAIK there is no 165mm option.
    Safe riding,

    ive beat the crap out of my xo carbon cranks, on the DH bike and on the trail bike. goin on 3 years for both bikes, tough, stiff, light, plus carbons dampening properties are reasons I like em.

    I would buy x01 cranks. 539g for cranks,spindle and spider for 94BCD chainring. If you will use directmount chainring its 79g less. You can get it for 220EUR which is great.

    Do XO1 cranks come in 165mm length the OP is after?

    I have XO carbon cranks on my canfield riot and have run them on other bikes as well. They take a beating and keep on going.

    The DH version of the sram X0s are for wider BB (83mm). I run the xo 170mm on my nomad and they are great, especially with a direct mount chainring.

    I've abused the XX1s for a few seasons and no issues at all, nice cranks and can take a pretty good beating. Main difference between these and Next is Next has a much lighter alloy spindle. I haven't heard of anyone breaking it, but I'd think twice about it for a bike I'm going to abuse like that, but I'd be alright with them on my Fatbike (which has Turbines because they come in better colors!).

    You don't have issues with pedal strikes at Rocky Peak? I suppose going with 165 will help, but I'm weary of carbon cranks given what my alu cranks look like, riding a lot up there.

    Put boots on the crank arms... I have carbon cranks on CX and MTB and my CX ones look way more beat up and have never had a strike. About the same number of miles too, so that says something. CX miles come a lot easier/faster. The CX bike sees green circle singletrack, gravel, and pavement. The gravel beats them up bad.
