It needs to be compact(110mm/50/34T) 170mm arms and not BB30.
What I have in mind is something like an FSA K Force Light,
but at a serious cost savings. Are there any asian brands out there
that make a similar product? Sort of like the asian 24mm carbon rims vs.
the Edge rims, etc. Any ideas/suggestions would be welcome. Maybe there's
something that I haven't considered. Doesn't have to be carbon, could
I've never had problems with cranks... except FSA. I've had two pairs (differnt models), and on both sets the bonding between the alloy sleeves for the pedal or BB axle and the crank arms worked loose. I had one set repaired under warranty, but they did it again a few hundred kms later.
To the OP: my recommendation is Extralite.
I will be needing a new crank soon and liked the KCNC but will keep looking and would like to see the new SRAM offering.
AERO & LIGHT is RIGHT

There's also compacts as well should you need them.

NOS ones are still vailable but maybe more than £200.
Also by the time you add the BB to your FSA crank then the cobined weight will be 740g. You tiagra chainset + BB will be ~900g. You car not going to get a 300g saving in other words.
Also look at NOS campag square taper cranksets. These are light at 640g. A Tifosi Sqare taper BB with ISO axle is 220g so this make a very cheap low weight combination. It will cost £85, I know that because I am selling them.

What shall I get that will save some weight? I'd like to save 300g or so if possible, budget about £200
I run the Tiagra/4550 compact, and with a 46t outer 'ring, it's 900g including Dura-Ace cups.
For those that have experience with FSAs, how does SL-K light compare with K-force, aside from 10g difference?
