I don't post very often here, but we just received a few hundred of the new Pacenti SL23 and threw a couple on the scale. I thought it was Weight Weenies worthy.

18h: 416g
32h: 408.5g

Is the spoke nipple bed thicker. Making the rim lighter may make it less useful as where has the weight loss come from. If its the brake track then it will nomlonger be an all weather rim. If the spoke nipple bed is not thicker but thinner then this would be a potential problem looking forward to getting them though but i really need a cross section of both rims to see.

According to the Pacenti website the spoke bed is thicker and the internal width is wider by about 2 mm

Wish these were out a few months ago, wouldn't been a nice lighter alternative to C2/A23.

Interesting! I've never built with the old sl23 but it is pretty popular for an "average" rim.... Seems like they may have gone a bit more bleeding edge a la Stan's this time. I am quite keen on this as life is too short to ride heavy wheels and if they wear out it'll be a good excuse to build some more.
However, I wouldn't build with even second gen Alpha 340s again (had a few well installed tires pop off and they are bendy, hard to true and detension with tubeless beads).
I can see that such worries might be more acute if I was building wheels to sell.

Thanks for posting! (Brandon from bhs?) Do you expect a silver version?

This is Brandon from BHS.

I don't see silver in the future - just not that popular. If Kirk does a run I might grab a few from his stock, but there's no point in buying them by the hundred. I may do another order of 27h for 2:1 lacing, as those, while not terribly popular, do work very well.
