I tried severel light and heavy grips now.

1. ESI Racers/Chunky/XC Fit (50-65g) - Heavy but almost the most reliable and best! ..even when you want to clean them. Bit expensive

Image

2. Prologo Feather (17g) - Cheap - For Racers who like hard foam like Procraft and want total control. Nice Feature: Closed ends - needs no plugs!

Image

3. Extralite Hypergrips (7g) - For real racers who dont care about anything! No Weight - less damping - gone after some races - not easy to mount

Image

4. Ritchey Superlogic (15g) - Light, good damping, soft - no long term testing but feels nice for that weight and money. Ask Nino Schurter ;)

Image

5. Lizard Skin (25-30g) - No word. :( Bad mounting (u need even tape to fix them). hard foam like prologo/procraft with a little layer of lizardskin tape but not reliable
To expensive for that weight and performance

Very nice ride and helpful grip reviews. I have the 2015 version of this bike. A couple of changes I'm liking-- the shorter stack of the Lefty 2.0, the internal cabling, and the wider Enve rims. The whole Scalpel Si lineup is such better value than the previous. The Carbon 3 already has Crest wheels, XTR 1x11, and the Full Sprint lockout. What else does an XC bike really need?

It's interesting you're using an OPI stem. Did the bike come like that? Cannondale recalled them all for a wedge retrofit in 2015. I ended up trading mine out for a 1.125" steerer and Kalloy Uno combination, which was actually lighter even in alloy. But then, totally against WW ethos, I also added a dropper. It's a legit trail bike with one and so much more fun. If you can spare the pound for the downhills, buy one!

The OPI Stem aint the problem. The Steerer and the thread with its micro-vibrations is the problem.
Thats why you should use the wedge!

The bike came with the normal XC Steerer and 1.5 80mm stem.

A dropper is a really good option but for me not really necessary. I try to gain weight where its possible.

Just took this beauty home. Sat 10,5kg at the shop without pedals. Added XTR M9000 pedals and changed stock grips to lighter foam grips.

Next I'll remove tubes and change some bolts to lighter.

Thanks. I switched 46 cassette and have ordered 34 chainring.
Based on (your?)videos from mtbr I need to bleed the sprint remote.

If the remote works ... it works :D
You need to bleed it if the lever wont go out properly.

Remote seems to be hit and miss most of the times so I guess bleeding would only improve it.

No not really. Sometimes it really needs 2-3 hits.
Its really bad but there is no other way or trick to make it more soft or easier.

Most of the force u put into the remote is to lock the shock. The remote for lefty is really easy alone and never caused any problems

Mine moves nicely but it's hard to "lock" the lever to correct position.
