That is what I call Stupid lite. As long as your going on a flat or uphill it's cool... but descending, you gotta be stupid to do that.

Cirro UL Kom rim 220g + some superlight front hub 60g + DT Revos
= 390g for 24 spokes

I would hate to see the results of these wheels hitting a divet in the road. Probably have to send them back. Also with ADA's if you break a spoke dont you have to send them back to have them built back up?

yes one spoke and they have to fix it. But an ADA wheel with one broken spoke is like a normal 32 spoke wheels with 20 broken spokes: you can't still ride with it :evil:
