27.7g saved with the Lightning PF30 as per Mdeth/RyanH/Godzuki with the Enduro ceramic upgrade.
Enduro Zero Ceramic went bust after 500km on my Vial Ultra, switched to NTN from Hambini which cost me like +6g for a pair, but durability definitely will be infinitely better.

Weird - grade 3 Si3N4 like that should have very good durability. Hope it was an isolated case!

How have the KCNC TI cable held up. Are you still using them, I can't see anywhere in the thread that you've changed them, which gives me confidence as I've just purchased the brake cables to go on my Urgestalt.
Cheers

KCookie I have used the KCNC ti brake cables for 15,000K without issue (SRAM Red, EE Brakes, Aliigator ilink and powercordz swift). The gear cables have not held up for me though. Have had FD cable die at pinch bolt and RD cable die inside the shifter. Both times riding home sucked. (On the plus size mandatory high cadence session and low cadence strength sessions respectively)

That's awesome. Thanks for letting me know. At the price they are I'm glad they are working well. Going to be a good weight saving to.

My FD is cable is frayed at the clamp, but I attributed that to un-clamping and re-clamping a fair bit while replacing bits. Same with the rear brake, but it has withstood more abuse and is in better condition.

Heat shrink hoods - about 9.7g each vs 22.5g for my hole punched stock hoods.

Nice!
Could you tell the specifications of the heat shrink like size ID and shrinkage ratio (2:1, 4:1..)?
Thanks

I'm away from home, so can't be sure at the moment. I thought I'd mentioned it earlier in the thread, but IIRC I think it's 3:1.
