Strengths:    Absolutely Gorgeous.
Customer service.

Weaknesses:    I broke 2 sets before selling the replacement.

Bottom Line:   
The crankarm are stunning and stiff, but I had problems with the small chainring nuts coming loose were it was cemented/attached to the carbon on crank. Stronglight replaced twice w/o hesitation.
These would be amazing cranks for an XC racer, but I am not. Not for pounding through rocks and off drops.

Strengths:    Look amazing,compatility 175 mm 170mm,full carbon and ct2 rings(the best one)

Weaknesses:    Weight(880gr vs xtr 750gr) after that wait and see...

Bottom Line:   
I wanted an alternative to shimano and those cranks are amazing when you look the details,and there reliable for the moment,shift like a dream and are not flexy(i'm 250 lbs).
So,so far so good,but as a French i'm maybe a little bit biased on this old but nice brand.
If you want to ride different from your riding pals....

Strengths:    gorgeous appreance, unique elastomer, changeable lenght
full carbon, fast shifting(ceramic ct2 chain rings)

Weaknesses:    high cost, weight,

Bottom Line:   
cool looks and realible working every time.
but high cost and little more weight.
this is 880g and nowdays i think this crank is heavy in comparison to other high-cost crankset.(frm, extralite, fsa are all below 750G)
but ct2 chainring give a excellent perfomance and you will see a new world.
this is very stiff and beautiful so despite of it's weight i higlly recommend this.
stronglight insist elastomer reduce a shock and gives a comfotable. i want to believe.
