Pros: Lightweight. Uses either press fit or threaded BB. Able to take a beating on the trail.

Cons: Bit awkward to fit single 32t chain rings.

Recommendation: I've used this crank for the better part of a year. As a 2x10 it does great with the 38x26 ratios. Now running it as 1x10 and it looks much cleaner to mount a single chainring than on a 3x10 crank.
