Good Quality Carbon Fiber Crankset
 
My current setup
Crankset: Shimano Alfine Hollowtech II , 170mm crank arm length, 130BCD, Single Speed 48T with integrated chain guard
Bottom Bracket: Shimano Ultegra Press Fit sealed bearing unit BB86

I would like to keep the bottom bracket and just upgrade the crank arms & spider to carbon fiber for further weight reduction .

THM is very good but the price is unaffordable.
Any recommendation?

Maybe consider the SRAM Red crankset. (the pre-12 speed version)
Its one of the lightest mainstream one on the market and easy to obtain.

I got one in combination with a SRAM Rival groupset and its lighter than a full Ultegra/Force set for cheaper.

If you want to keep the bottom bracket, there aren't many affordable options.

Lightning has also lightweight carbon crankset but they aren't really cheap !

If you can change your BB, you have he excellent Campagnolo Super Record carbon crankset with titanium axle. You can easily find new old stock previous models 5 arms BCD135 for an affordable price (not only lightweight, also gorgeous).

Thanks for your advice.
My BB won't be changed for some reasons.
Yes, I have been looking at the Lightning one.
