The draw: Range of length options
Short cranks can provide more room between the femur and abdomen while riding in the aerobars, making it easier to get through the momentum-zapping portions of the pedal circle while staying tucked in. While the Cobb Short Crankset is not as light or as high-tech as some other short cranks, like those from Rotor, they are available in shorter lengths than most anything else in a production crank and at a comparatively low cost.
