|I don't know how they can claim "worlds lightest" when a pair of american classic 350's will weigh about 1340 g. AND a lot cheaper too. $385!!!|

|1) Theres a wheelset listed below at 1300 grams... 60 grams lighter than these wheels.
2) The Zipp 303 Zx or weigh in at 960 grams. Albeit at a cost of around $3000. I think I saw in their catalog the bearings alone cost around $1000.

|Thats cool... and a lot cheaper than the Zipp's. But for weight the Zipp's are still the lightest tubular unless someone can prove me wrong.

|those are weights for the tubular version of the Zip 303s, the clincher version is much heavier.|

|I'm suspicious of any weight claim, but even more so when they don't come right out and tell you what the weight is or how they measured it; throwing in a bar chart with some vagueness to it and comparing them to a few select other wheels just smacks of misinformation and marketing ploy. At that point, I not only mistrust the marketing, but the product itself.
