Crankset for gravel bike?

Especially for light weight issues concerning cyclocross / touring bikes & parts.

I know Easton & Race Face are know the same company. I'm looking at the EC 90 or the Next SL crankset...which one is better for gravel? I understand the q-factor is 19mm smaller on the EC90 but will this make a big difference? FYI: I have plenty of clearance on the chainsaws for either crankset.

I’ve been happy running the EC90 1X. It shaved a good amount of weight off the bike replacing SRAM Rival.

Go for EC 90 SL. It's a great crankset.
