For njee20 benefit,
Weights = 1,495 plus 1,612 = 3,109g for full wheelset inc tyres
therefore 3,109 - (2 x 770) = 1,569 g for wheelset without tyres
Rims x 2 = 780g
Hubs front and back = 323g
Spokes = 318g
Nipples = 62g
Total weight = 1,483g
Total individual weight is 1,483g not including rim tape, valves and sealant so I would say my numbers are tying up pretty well to be honest. Or am I missing something?
So you are comparing a Carbon AM rim with a XC aluminium rims weight so you can call another rim not light? Then say they aren't comparable in application. Bit of a confused message going out there I'd say There is only 100g difference between them anyway. A fair comparison would be the Arch but then its 950g for a pair but that doesn't work for your argument does it? Lets please keep this to comparing apples with apples.
Show me an all mountain carbon build which is lighter and not twice the price and I will buy them. This thread, I believe, is about Carbon rims and in the carbon world these are a very light build. The OP ones he mentions are 1,700g which is over 200g heavier.
