Cannondale! Lightest of the other two you stated. And stiff.

MSC Koncept Carbon Di2 - 6955g

Yes. Cannondale Hollowgram is probably your best choice for BB30. Lightning cranks would be nice too.

The K-Force is not the only BB30 offering from FSA... they also do a V-Drive and Afterburner BB30 crankset... both are heavy though.

Another option is Extralite E-bones in BB30...

ControlTech also have BB30 cranksets - the Rage OS (1020gr), Rage D (1015g) and Rage T (1050g)

Other than these, Cannondale, Lightning & SRAM the choice is limited... it defeats the point but you can always use a BB30 shim in the frame or run BB30 adaptors.

Yes,

I knew that FSA had more options, but like you said, I'm looking for a lighter option then those.
Thanks to bring on the other options ...
As for the adapters, I really would like to stick at BB30, what's the point of having a BB30 frameset and use the conventional system :noidea:

Clavicula doesn't come in BB30, only with adapters

but Clavicula has 30mm axle

so can be "adapted" to a BB30

Nope, FSA made the much less impressive Cannondale carbon SI cranks but the Hollowgram is designed and manufactured by Cannondale. The Hollowgram SL is still the crankset every other wished they could be. The threaded XX crankset turns out to be pretty heavy, heavier than claimed and far from impressive for being the latest and aimed as a light xc race crankset. The BB30 XX is heavier claimed than the Hollowgram but we can expect real world weight to be even more far off.

I went for the FSA K-force light (because I had the chance of making a great deal)
Bought the one with the red spider, because this was to flashy for me someone is changing the red spider into a white one (without transfers)
Should match perfectly with my white/black frame.

Any idea what the minimum Q factor is for the Look frame ? Would a Q156 mm fit ?

If you've got the frame, just take some measurements. SRAM have a pretty comprehensive 'frame fit' guide on their website.

You can't go wrong with the Cannondale Hollowgram crankset... IMHO it's simply the best out there.
