    sram eagle gx crankarms - how to "black out" or similar blacked out crank arms?

    I really like the SRAM Eagle GX crankarms:

    However, I don't like the massive GX decal motif on the ends of the crankarms. My bike is stealth black so the large decal motif wouldn't blend well.

    Can you recommend how to black out these crank arms or can you recommend similar crank arms that are sold blacked out?

    Thanks! The crankskins are a good idea. I like the contouring of the GX crankarms but they seem a bit wide. Can you recommend a crank arm with contoured styling that isn't quite as wide?

    Hmm the shimano Saint/zee cranks are sort of like that. Fyi sram recommends using their eagle chainrings on an eagle drivetrain. I dont know if they are made for cranks other than sram models

    I believe that the crank arms can be replaced independently
