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.

The K-Force also uses a stiffer big chainring.
