the weight of the Mavic CXP-33 wheelset. I know that they are fairly heavy, but I would like to know the exact weight. I am currently using this wheelset, but am in the market for something lighter, faster, and more aerodynamic. I am thinking Campy Scirocco or Proton.
Thanks!
Try wrenchscience's wheelsets, weights are all there. nmSpunout

The weight of all products listed on the Internet are subject to variation of upto +/-10% (+5% is likely). The only way to be sure is to weigh them.

The CXP-33 is listed at 470g. An Open Pro is listed at 425g. Figure that both types of wheels are going to be a little heavier in the real world.

If you want the posted weights of campy, go to:
http://www.campagnolo.com/pdf/SpecsWheelsEN.pdf

They have all the weights listed.

BTW, if your wheels are mounted to Ultegra hubs, and use straight spokes, brass nipples, they probably weigh about 2100 grams with skewers. When you are looking at wheel specs, just remember that they always list weights without the skewers.
