In short, what is the best aftermarket crankset for Sram Etap?
Fast and precise shifting.
I use Clavicula SE on two bikes.

I don't ride etap, so my comments can be discounted but...I've had very good success with Campy cranks. Current favorite is the old model Super Record with CULT bearings, which resist corrosion and have given me many miles with no noises and very easy servicability etc. Old model can be tracked down for not a ton of $

Also, the Red crank is one of the lighest cranks out there.
Not the BB386 the OP have. Around 630g no ? Aldhu DM can be slighlty lighter, around 10g.

I think they're under 600g?

Nope, i have the specified BB 386 which also have a removable spider.
I ordered crank separate, after looking into warranties with Sram.
However, i noted that chain easily drop inbetween big/small shifting down from 50 to 36 while in 11th gear.
I played around a bit with 0.5 washers, but it didn't solve the issue.
FSA K-Force Lite have much better chainring ramps, also Wickwerks which sadly doesn't sell 50/36 combo.
THM is a beautiful crankset, not sure i would dare use it with Sram Etap though!
I would get serious anxiety if the chain jumped outboards leaving a ugly mark in this crank.
