It will save about 60g, so far better stiffness with the Record
I just recieved my storck cranks on friday, and guess what there ISIS !!!!
I recently inquired on this site into buying a set and the only place left was posh bikes.
But to my surprise I found a place right here in so cal called Hi-tech bikes and they had them in stock.
They picked them up at inter bike and brought some back this was some cool news.
Check there web site www.hi-techbikes.com they are very cool people.
I am a jeweler by trade and my scale is perfect so this is real weight.
I hope you get them soon superlight and maybe theese people will keep stocking storck parts for us here in the U.S.
But what about chainrings? Whats a good lite weight set to get?

Storck announced on this years Eurobike the he'll make an ISIS and tune hex taper version of the Power Arms Pro.
They already did some testing with an ISIS prototype one or two years ago, but they weren't very satisified with the ISIS interface so they dropped the idea.
But why an ISIS version of the Power Arms Pro?
I guess the splined interface doesn't make the crank significantly stiffer - the lack of stiffness comes mostly from the soft crank arms not from the axle type. Why buying one of the lightest crank arms when you have to stick with heavy ISIS BBs? And not to mention the durability problems of the ISIS BBs.
The only reason I bought it in Isis is because that is all that was available at the time, and all I was gaining was 2 grams on my last bottom bracket but shaving 149 grams(5.32oz) with this crank set up.
But now you have me thinking even though there is no going back now.
