Last (I promise) but not least… the tyres & tubes….

The Maxxis UST tubeless “Medusa” weighed in at 650g each and the regular tubes inside them another 196g on top!
Replacing them with the Ritchey WCS 1.9 Z-Max evolutions (460g) combined with a Schwalbe lightweight tube (137g) has netted us the biggest saving by far at nearly half a Kilo…

You could lose (halve) some weight off that rear shock.
