I think you’d find that the Turbine weight does not include a chain ring whereas the Next R includes a 32 ring. And RF list the Turbine at 522 not 422.  had a Turbine and Next SL in my hands a while back each with a ring and the weight difference was very noticeable. My Next SL has been on two bikes and is heading into its fourth season with no issues thus far. That said I totally understand why folks would avoid carbon cranks. I’ve seen the broken cranks. I’ve seen aluminum cranks fail too and aluminum pedal threads stripped out. I couldn’t say if aluminum cranks fail less or not. But there is certainly more “comfort” with aluminum being metal and all.
