Sorry for using this thread but it seemed somewhat useful for my question.
I see several sites claiming a weight of 1250g for the ENVE ses 3.4 clincher, like here http://www.merlincycles.com/bike-shop/wheels/road-wheels/factory-road-wheels/enve-ses-34-clincher-wheelset-ck-hub-plus-free-tyres.html
The rims alone is claimed to weigh a total of 885g from several sources, and the Chris King hubs which I believe must be the R-45 is 317g (anyway its the lightest from CK). Thats 1202g, so now you have approx 48g for spokes and nipples. Explain it to me, what am I missing?
I also have a seller here in Norway who is claiming a weight of 1245g for the clincher version with CK R-45 hubs.
Also bikeradar claims a weight in this range (1277g) with R-45, http://www.bikeradar.com/gear/category/components/wheel-sets/product/review-smart-enve-system-34-wheelset-12-45763/
So I guess it comes down to rim weight, checking fairwheelbikes the weight for both rims supports my earlier statement (890g there).
FWIW all wheels "checked" has 20/24 spokes
Im just a big ? now
Really want them, but want to save some grams with new wheels too
Bikeradar's review is of the tubular set since that's what was released first and the clincher version came out afterwards. Nonetheless, it's still interesting that their measured weight (1,277g) exceeded Enve's quoted variation of +/- 2%: their specified weight
for the R45 3.4 set is 1320g. Merlin cycles is erroneously quoting the tubular weight for their clincher set.
You can get a rough estimate of what a build would weigh using wheelbuilder's calculator. It's not completely spot on, but it's close enough to get an idea: http://www.wheelbuilder.com/wheel-weigh ... lator.html
