SRAM Force or FSA SL-K Lite?

Situtation: Had bike shop order CAAD9-4. its coming with a double crank (compact not avail) and we want a compact for the hills.

Which of the above cranksets is better? And, if you had to put a dollar amount on how much better, how much? The FSA SL-K Lite comes on the higher end CAAD9-1 but the Force crank is pretty great...

They're very similar but the SRAM one I believe has the huge SRAM lettering on the inside of the crankarm, which looks super cool. Clearly that's good for an extra 5 W :p

Got the Force crank
Well done. Don't believe the garbage about crank arms falling off with the self-extracting ND arm design. I hate the shimano pinch bolts and that stupid proprietary fixing bolt design that gives you preload!
