I've scoured the internet trying to find this weight, with no success. I'm looking for the weight of the WH-9000-C50-CL rims.

Now, I think you can swag it based on a comparison with C35's weights. I've seen C35's listed at 1488g per set (662 F, 826 R) and the rim weight listed ~439g. C50's are listed at 1672g per set (752 F, 920 R). They have the same hubs and spokes (16 F, 21R), I believe. If you do the math, it comes out to 530g per rim.

Can anyone confirm?

Thanks, Scott

but the spokes will be a little lighter on the C50s, so you need to add a little more on for that

They have to be in the 500g range all rims of this depth and type are. Also are these rims have an alloy brake track don't they in which the rims must be about 540g each unless shimano have managed something no on else has.

^^My math seems reasonably close then, as these have an alloy break track. Thanks.

Good point. I have not been able to find the spoke type for these?
