Good point made,(FSA=575g and DA=560g.) but I like the Carbon look. I think the chain ring are both made with 7075-t30 Alum..I may be wrong.
Go with profile carbon cranks and Dura Ace rings. Much lighter.allervite

I love mine.
Profile = much heavier. speced weight doesnt include spiderstr8dum1

the specs they give are for ARMS ONLY!! you have to add another 90g for the spider (384+90 = 474, DA arms and spider only weigh 420g) . They end up being heavier than the DA also plus like $150 more expensive!

want light, have to go with carbo arms with a carbo spider (ie FSA TEAM carbon Pro's)
