You need a tool for any 48 spline cranks. They should come with it though.

If you haven't bought those cranks yet, don't buy them. Get the thunderbolts from odyssey.

My old profiles were fairly used so the splines were fairly easy to slide on. Just slid them off super easily, regreased em, then pushed it on by hand and by doing that it magically destroyed the splines and that crank never came off again. Problem is when you push your crank arm on by hand, its able to get away with going on ever so crooked which messes up and deforms the splines ever so slightly. The crank tool ensures that they go on perfectly.
Tbh you could make a crank tool out of a bolt, a washer, and a short piece of piping or somethin
using your bolt works too but it can damage the threads.

And technically 22/24mm have bigger splines so theyre harder to deform.

I've only ran one pair of 48-spline cranks and have ever been since. I have always used my hands, but when I first got them, I greased the crap outta them, which loosened up the splines, and I rode and rode and now the splines are stretched I guess, and only sometimes will I have to use the bolt to tap out the crank arm. I use a spline drive sprocket and the splines on that have stretched as well so everything is pretty easy to take apart but not always.
