 this has the chance of being a very good product, there are just a few problems letting it down. the big issue is that they are very sensative to being misaligned and it caused the front of mine shatter under heavy braking, in their defence crank brothers were very very good and replaced it FOC under warrenty even tho it was suspected to be an installation problem. on the plus side i have had farts with more mass than these headsets so if weight is crucial to you and you are willing to chance it then yes i'd say go for it, as for me well i'm now running a Chris King Ti headset and will never look back. as i've already said, has the potential but just misses out on performing for me but i might have got a dodgy one.
