Weights, clean rims

Front: 442g (actual)

Rear: 934g-270g-15h (for the Veloce cassette and lockring, from listings) = 629g,

Total weight: 1071g

Not at all bad as the FFWD hub is heavy! 265g claimed. The C-4 180 is supposedly coming in at 185g so you would be looking at a wheelset weight of around 990g. Of course if you use the SuperSpoke you drop another 35g bringing you down to 955g. Seriously light for the money.

I'm nearly 80gr and racing in Belgium.
Are they stiff enough for a good sprint?


They aren't the stiffest wheels, I can make the front rub if i sprint uphill and I only weight 65kg on a heavy day.

Why doesn't the US Planet X carry these?

Order from the UK site, they ship to the US for the same price as from the US site.

Took the decals off. Work was done by a professional, he had to scratch the vinyl off, remove the painting and reapply clear coat on. Paid €40 without any weight penalty. Will be laced with cx-rays on BHS hubs.

Nice job! Let us know final weight once you build. I'm thinking of building the same set.

Thanks for the details Maximilian. :thumbup:

My C-4 180 is 197g, so looking like the sub 1000g will be super tight! Front hub I've bought is a American Classic Hub Micro 58 which was right on 58g...

Will look at building these up when I get back from holidays.
