Strengths: Indestructable. Back in the day I broke them all except the Profiles. If you are big and ugly then these are the cranks for you.
Weaknesses: They make all of the other crank arms cry. Other than that I'm not sure.
I bought my first set of Profile Racing cranks over 25 years ago when I raced for my LBS and various co-factory. I still own and use those cranks. I weighed 200 lbs when I raced the regional NBL circuit in 15-16 expert and never as much bent these cranks. I now have two other bikes with Profile Racing cranks. There's nothing more that I can add to convince....

Strengths: Everything! these cranks have nothing wrong with them. buy them, because you'll have them forever. I've been dirt jumping and racing with these for more than five years, and they're super strong and stiff- no flex at all!
Weaknesses: nothing besides the fact that they can rust while coated in mud and/or rain, but you can always polish that right off.
Buy them and you wont need another set of cranks forever. Like I said, I've been using mine for 5+ years now, and I've had no problems whatsoever. Buy it. No matter what type of rider you are, you won't be disappointed. (lifetime warranty too, on the arms and spindle bending or breaking)
Bike Setup: Intense Sniper, SX forks, Kovachi wheels, Shimano brakes and pedals
