I'm current having a Shimano XTR Crank Arms (457 grams w. spider) with a Specielites TA Spider and 42/32T Chainrings (89 grams). Weight with Shimano XTR BB (183) is 764 grams.

Maybe thinking about the FSA carbon Crank Arms but it doesn't seems like alot weight saved.

What is the lightest solution?

You can save some weight at the bottom bracket, too, I recommend ISIS, for example FRM Al or Ti under 150g.

If you want the absolute lightest check this out at 390g for MTB and 350 road!

The FS Buttah frame is also amazing at 3.25 pounds.

Yeah I would like a lighter BB but changing to ISIS-BB I will have to find a lightweight crankset.

FSA Carbon Pro/Team are availiable with ISIS, or Extralite E-Bones at only 358g/pair without chain rings. Or the new Tune Big Foot with the new bottom bracket sixpack.

Storck cranks with Sugino chain rings and FRM or Action Tec Ti BB is your lightest bet without going to extreme.
Look in the listings for the weights.
