just weighed my new Ksyrium Pro Carbon SL Cs

they weigh 1450 on the dot. no rim strips. even peeled off all the excessive and ugly SSC rim decals. advertised weight is 1390.

these ksyriums weigh what the 14mm deeper cosmics with heavier spokes are supposed to weigh.

My campagnolo bora 35 one tubulars weigh 1237 on the same scale (under their advertised weight).

needless to say, im pretty pissed.

plus the mold flashing on the leading edge of the rim, the unevenly drilled valvestem hole, and the REALLY tight rear bearings make me question my decision to sell my Boras..


just fyi for all.....

As I have repeated many times on this and other forums.....welcome to Mavic's dodgy scales!!!

And don't EVER break a spoke.....3 month wait....if you're lucky!

Your Bora 35s are I think 60g heavier than mine and many others on the forum.

Yeah, I've got Bora Ones 40g lighter than you have ! My dad is also bigger than your dad.

First part of that is definitely true ... unless the scales are out!

Maybe Mavic do their weighing in Annecy, 450m above sea level, so you need to convert

Mine are Bora Ones. My Bora 50s weighed less than your Ones (1222g IIRC). My Ksyrium Pro Carbon Tubs weighed 1200g I believe, so about 10g over claimed.
