weight limit on carbon cranks?

I am starting a buildup of a new frame, and am considering going with Carbon Ultra Torque Centaur, however I am a bit concern as far as rider weight being a factor? I am 240, pretty good shape and fairly strong rider. Any opinions or experiences? thanks

Just out of curiosity I googled weight limit on this crankset and didn't find anything, nor anything on the campy site. Other manufacturers' cranksets did show up with weight limits on google, but not this one. If I were you I'd probably call the Campy 800 number and ask them. Since I weigh 100 pounds less, I don't have any problems in this regard .

thanks... i did the same thing, came up blank as well. The instructions for my Aluminum Centaur Ultra torque has a whole list of precautions for the Carbon Crankset like dont leave in a hot car! and such so it got me wondering..... If I cant find anything out I will just stick with the aluminum, better safe than sorry lol.
