WHOOPS! :oops:
meant to post this as a reply to this thread

"Campagnolo Eurus real weight"
I goofed and posted as new thread ... oh well.

Received my Shamal Ultra Ti, clincher-only (not 2-way) with Campy freehub (2008/09 model year):

FRONT without skewer
claimed 605 g
actual 617 g

REAR without skewer or cassette lockring
claimed 790 g
actual 832 g

TOTAL WHEEL SET without skewer
claimed 1395 g
actual 1449 g

3.9% Higher than claimed (not too unreasonable).

Campy Skewers (actual, no claim listed)
Front 55 g
Rear 63 g
TOTAL skewers 118 g

GRAND TOTAL Wheels + Skewers :
actual 1567 g

well, all 3 wheelset weights submitted are very consistent:

Front w/o skewer: 617 , 619 , 620 g.
Average = 2.3% higher than claimed.

Rear w/o skewer: 832 , 827 , 830 g. (832 is Campy freehub, others unspecified).
Average = 5.0% higher than claimed.

Total Campy skewers: 118 , 118 , 115 g.


Recently I've weighed all the components of my 2009 11-speed Campy Chorus gruppo. All the components were either spot-on, or slightly under (1-2g) the claimed weights.

One exception, I have the 12-27t cassette (actual 265 g) and I'm sure the specs refer to the the smaller, lighter 11-23t cassette (claim 236 g).
