Strength:

Nice cranks if you are four foot tall.

Weakness:

If you are older than 12 years old and not a umpa lumpa they are useless. I am 5.9 foot with a 34 inseam and require at least 180mm or longer..

I wish manufactures made cranks for adult riders. You can buy frames with a 22 inch top tube but only Profile makes cranks that are durable and reasonable length. You could get a Paul Componets crank set for a customized rediculous price then snap off the weak, outdated bottom bracket the first ride around the block. Quality and usability is out the window with generic Asian made parts. Hopefully we can turn around the generic parts craze and one size fits all train of thought.

Strength:

Great crank overall. REally light for the strength. I just bought the 09' in snow white. I have two sets of these cranks but the dh version. I have had no problems with either set.

Weakness:

None

If i could recommend any crank for racing or just riding downhill these would be them. However if you dont race or ride consistently i would look towards the less expensive standard 1.1 and not the oct.

Strength:

Light, Stiff, Bombproof, Howitzer Interface (rocks)

Weakness:

None

Well after bending the $hit out of an Evolve DH (outward) I had to step up in strength. I didn't, however, want to gain weight. The Diabolus was out of the question after experiencing RF CS and the fact that the interface sucks big-time. I'm not wild on the pinch-bolt on Saints and I just didn't see much else that appealed to me. Everyone raves about the OCT being crazy light but apparently they've just read too much marketing hype and not actually looked at the numbers. They are pretty light but they're not out-of this world. They have already suvived a nice concrete case and a full speed pedal-clip on a tree (how I bent the RF). They are also extremely stiff. It's kinda wierd but my bike immediately felt like it got moving quicker when you got on the pedals. That was also another person's first comment. It's definitely noticeable. I also love the Howitzer set-up. I think it gives you lots of options and all my bikes will be rocking it from now on. BOTTOM LINE: I DON'T THINK THERE'S A BETTER CRANK IN THIS CATEGORY MADE.
