These are 'marketing' weight, here we only believe in real weight :wink:

1300 gr for a 50 mm rims with PMP hubs and CX Ray spokes would means that Gigantex rims weight 375 gr. That could be a good product.

Are you referring to the Clincher or the tubular versions ?

From their material and what I discussed with them, the 50mm tubular is about 1400g, their brochure says 1395g, held them in the hands, they are not too far off. The clinchers are about 1500+g, about the same weight as my Stratus DV Clinchers by hand gauge.

Just got the new wheels with their new Joytec/novatec hubs. Now they are straightpull and Sapim spokes. But i've never seen that kind of Sapim spoke, perhaps it's a special one?
The weight of the rearwheel is lower now so a 50mm set is 1503gram, very close to the claimed weight of 1500grams.

How do you go about getting an agent? More importantly how do you go about finding a good trust worthy one!

Ok Mickey!
I missunderstood, that is the 50mm tubular wheelset in picture.
I'll be getting a another pair that has their new lighter rim and built with PMP hubs.
I'll post the weight of that one when i get it.
