Strengths:    super strong
steel pedal inserts
low cost(for crank arms only)

Weaknesses:    NONE!

Bottom Line:   
A very good crank! Just as strong as Holzfellers and Hussefelts for about half the price. The arms look heavy but are actually quite light for such a stout crank. I replaced the aluminum bash guard with FSA's new clear shatterproof polycarbonate-composite. Now they look even better.

If you want to change to a stronger crank for aggressive riding, freeriding or jumping... Get this crankset!
(save money and get the armset)
