    That frame has a BB30 bottom bracket, so if you're looking for a new crank, you should look for a BB30 crank. If, however, you already have a GXP crank, you can get an adapter from someone like Wheels Manufacturing that will allow you to use GXP crank with your bike's BB.

    So if I look for a BB30 crank I do not need adapter, isn't it?

    Correct. If you get a BB30 crank, you don't need an adapter.
