    What is the difference of this hallowtech crankset? Alivio or Deore?

    What hallowtech is better from alivio and deore?

    What are the pros and cons of both?

    Thanks!

    deore is above alivio in the range, so will maybe be a little lighter or stronger. If you go to the shimano site it will give you the exact specs. If it were me I'd get deore...but the if it were me i'd get XT...
    All the gear and no idea.

    And if either one of you were me I'd get XTR.

    Deore is plenty fine. When I can see any difference besides the rings and it saying xt I could see the extra costs. I have a deore crankset, im a Clyde, no functional difference in xt bikes ive ridden.

    Alivio probably wont be bad, probably just a bit heavier, cheap rings.

    The latest Alivios with Hollowtech are actually very comparable to Deore compared to the last Alivio gen's octalink version. Deore generally should be higher quality, as it's 1 tier higher, but in this case the Alivio got recently revamped and looks much sharper. Small differences like the Alivio having all stamped steel chainrings vs maybe an alloy one on the Deore shouldn't be deal breakers.

    Just choose based on gear range, looks, and price, IMO.
