Honestly, I think Bebas Neue needed additional weights. The bold typeface had become a staple of the design community for bold headlines, but you always had to chose a different typeface to use as a thin counterpart. There was also the issue of needing a regular version for more mainstream purposes. The new weights are a long awaited answer to the request for additional weights. The best part is that all of these are completely free, so pick them up before someone changes their minds and decides to start charging.
