The old Heliums weighed 1500g/set claimed (850/650g) for tubulars. I think he used the Helium because it's lighter of the Ksyrium, but the rear wheel is absolutely not stiff, so there it's better to use the Ksyrium.

Thats what I thought, vaigly remember 1500 ish grams. Must be what 6-8 years old now

I think it was deliberate. He did it on more than one stage.

The Helium front wheel is just lighter, especially the rim, so lower rotational mass and stiff enough for the front wheel
