Tibias, I run them, and i've never had a problem with them, profiles are also race cranks, so they're not made to take as much abuse as Tibias, which were designed for heavy street. I've owned both.

Eclats, owned two sets of profiles....one broke and the others bent. Their warranty department is descent though.

But it is unlikely that they break... and yeah sure you can warranty profiles when they break, but you can't warranty a broken ankle or shattered heel.. I would rather run something that is less likely to break tbh.

they're both good! god damn, they're profile BMX CRANKS. not fucking racing. sooo tired of hearing that. i've had both. i've had my profiles for like 4 months now. i love them. i had tibias too. the only think i can say is profiles aren't good if you have wide feet. i rub on the arms alot. so, i guess i'd go with tibias. but if you ride hard. profiles, because..you can warrenty them just from a crack. and most likely if your tibias cracked you'd ride them still. and that won't ever end good, hospital bill will be enough for another pair of cranks haha.

I didn't understand anything within the last part of your post, and you call me dumb. I'm not denying Profile has strong parts, i'm just saying that they're made for BMX racing, because Profile Racing is a BMX racing company, that's why cranks made for heavy street, ie. the Tibias, would hold up better.
