    What the difference betwen K-Force and SLK compact?

    By FSA? I notice that the K-Force is lighter?

    They both use exo BBs. Are they made of different materials?

    The K-force has a one piece carbon fibre crank arm/spider to which the chainrings are bolted to.

    The SLK has a carbon crank arms that are mounted on an aluminum spider that the chainrings then mount to.

    Ah so. I assume that the K Force costs alot more $$ than the SLK?

    The K-Force also uses a stiffer big chainring.
