falcon seems to think that weight ought to be determined without the hub body installed. they also ship it that way. add in the parts they send to make a ridable wheel (sans the cassette) and your looking at ~500g more. they say weight without cassette....cassette as defined by them is all of the parts necessary to attach the wheel to your bike. zipps weigh in as advertised.

I agree, the Accel is like the Hed, not a bad wheel, but quoted weight takes into account moon gravity or something, seen them from 1400-1500gm. A very good wheel, not laterally as stiff as Zipp, but moreso than the Hed. If you can get it cheap, <$500 probably not a bad wheel to have.
