Strengths:    Allways in power. Climbing abillities. Look and feel. Low lactate levels (- 8 bpm polar on known route and time). Almost no bob effect when using rear suspention without lockout. Minimize stress on your knees and many other cycling vulnerabilities.

Weaknesses:    Weight : 1280 g. That is 300-400 g more than comparable products. Easily compensated with the increased power.

Bottom Line:   
I was a little bit sceptical of this design that states it will eliminate the so called dead spot. With a prior career in athletics as a 100 to 400 m runner my biggest problem was not power but endurance with a net weight of about 85 kg. In my seek to find something that could overcome the build up of high levels of lactate I was suggested to test this crank. I was so happy that I ended up buying two pieces of this expencive art and have never regret a single second.

- Suits strong bikers with a lots of power.
- Customizable to your bikning habits/preferences
- Always in power and eases stress that leaves more time for experiences.

Bottom line: Try it and I believe you will buy it.
