I was just asking for clarification since everyone here is knowledgable and stated that from the website and what few bits of info I can find elsewhere I cannot decipher much about them beyond the verbose fluff on their website and was wondering what really distinguishes them, Not trying to insult them or start a fight. Tests ad the validity of both criteria and results are often debated and it seems every manufacturer has their own tests which suit their own purposes so I don't tend to put too much stock in that sort of thing, beyond very lightweight I just didn't see what put them at the top of everyones list. Not saying they don't deserve the accolades (I'm sure they do) just that I didn't understand/know why. But thanks....
My wallet is the lightest thing on my bike.

Zedler test is good and all, but should it really be considered the standard? Cervelo has indicated that it may not meet real world correlation when compared to actual strain gauge measurements out on the road.
