Yep, I think it's the Pulsion's, or maybe the new Zipp's.

I spoke with Zipp and they have no near term plans on making a compact version of their new cranks. If they ever did they would be comparable to some of the options available today or soon to be out but I do not think they would be lighter. Zipp states: 405g (at 172.5mm) Comes with lightweight 53/39 aluminum rings.

Try Wise Cycle Buys, they say they price match? Last time I checked they were not in yet.

I think excelsports.com might have them, though I'm not on good terms with that bunch of numbskulls.

Funny answer from Gypzy
"no, "availability" and "FSA" is mutually contradictory...
Next estimated availability date by FSA is end of March, but I highly doubt that these we'll be available ever again, because our distributor was told that they wanted to concentrate their production on the MegaExo version.

Best regards,

I'm lookiong for a light 170mm compact ISIS crankset - I have money in hand

Also need a set of 05 Zero Gravity brakes

I think you should just get a cheap aluminum set and wait for either Zipp or THM to come out with theirs. I was going to get a new set this year but decided to forget it until one of those came out next year. In a few months the Pulsion would be very tempting but I still wonder about the lack of left side ankle clearance since I use all of it that is available on my current FSA cranks.

If you just can't wait for carbon aebike.com has the FSA carbon pro elite compacts for $280.49 which isn't that much more than Alu ones.

I put a Ritchey WCS compact crankset on my wife's bike. I think it's about 575g. You can probably pick a set up for about $175 if you shop around.

Verdict:
Looks Good
Ok on Weight
Priced Cheap


Here's one on ebay. $179.99+$10.00 shipping, Octalink 170,172.5,or 175mm lengths available.
