Super Light? Lost me there.

I have the exact same wheels (except I used DT Pro-lock nipples) on my Pace and they're the heaviest MTB wheels I own.

Still good wheels though.

pro 2 hubs are pretty light and revolution spokes weght the same as the ti spokes so pretty light for a every day pair of xc wheels if i was building a set for racing id use stans or some special order rims from the nice guy at superstar components :wink: :lol: :lol:

not retro, but it does say on the sub-title it's for 'old-school parts' ;)

That aside, how much do they actually weigh ?
