Instead of saving weight, why don’t you go faster by adding a couple of grams?

I can see the advantage for road bikes (contemplating it for mine). Tubeless is the way forward for mountain bikes though.

Do they offer the same rolling resistance advantages as latex tubes (which are a watt or two quicker because the way they deform is different)?

Whilst appreciating that you don't want to run tubeless (despite having tubeless rims), removing the tubes would hit your target! :P
