My Roadmachine pimped with Extralite Cyberdisc 38c(1090gr with the xdr Freehub).
6,4kg with pedals etc.... as shown on picture. Happy :D
today-after work will be my first ride with the Wheels.
Now that you must have some km's under your belt - how do you rate them and how are they holding up?

Some more experience with these? Do they make sense for 80 kgs rider? How would you rate compared to some Bora disc clinchers for example? Weight is amazing but my experience with weightweenie parts has been mixed success so far..are these fit and forget (ok, after initial setup and spoke tension check)?
Extralite claims these are very stiff but i just wonder with these spokes how they could be..

Have put about 2500km on mine. Running them with wittoria corsa 25mm graphene 2,0 tubeless. My weight is 80kg and have been happy with them so far, pretty stiff. I broke a spoke the other day and have now ordered some sapim cx ray spokes, to replace if it happen again.

ok i have now 1500km on my extralite wheels, and yes i´m impressed, they going up like my old Lightweight Obermayer :) they are a little bit not so windstable like my old DtSwiss prc 1400 35, but no Problem for me and my 60kg Body :)
i use them everyday, and everyday they put a smile on my face!
Not a single Problem since i mount them, i hope it will be for long long time...we will see.

i ride them normally with latex tubes and Conti 4000rs. tubless i want test, but i will ride the Schwalbe Pro One tubeless, but i think extralite will not give the OK for the Schwalbe Pro One...

Im delighted with the wheels, three weeks in the Alps including the Maratona and did not miss a beat.

Running them with Conti GP4000RS 25mm with latex tubes with 75/80PSI.

The only thing that has slightly worried me is the straight pull spokes are showing loss of anodising near the spoke ends by the hubs. Difficult to explain but when i get a moment will post pictures.

Have emailed EL and whilst they have acknowledged this is not normal, they have provided an answer either.

Luckily i wont be riding them again for a while as the Cervelo is being stripped and readied for a custom paint job by Fatcreations!

Just ordered some of these myself last week - already shipped and on their way to Western Canada. So probably a few weeks out still.

I also ordered some Schmolke TLO 45 Clincher with Tune Prince/Princess Skyline Centrelock hubs to try out against the Extralite eventually.

Running 2019 Cervelo R5 DA Di2 with the DT Dwiss Spline 1450 Disc wheels currently.

Size 48cm frame, with all stock parts comes in at 7.27kg / 16.03lbs

I calculate the Extralite CyberDisc 38c will save me 400g (1480g DT Swiss to 1080g Extralite).

Based on the terrain and twisty descents I perform on I'll be using Shimano RT86 rotors which won't win any weight weenie awards.

Still, it's the going up part that I ordered these for and I'm excited about :)
I am looking forward on ur review of the Schmolke TLO 45 clincher!!!
It looks like a better choice for me. How do u like them so far?

Freewheel: Hyper engineered 2pawls OR-Drive

What do the 2 pawls OR-Drive means?

Sames as the 18T and 54T but this means only 2T?

You can consult this photo for details, SPD-2 are pretty much the same in this regard. "OR" means "outer ring", which is different from HyperRear freehub.

Got it. Thank you so much. Very tempting to get this wheelset.

How is this front wheel 425 grams? The hub is 66, spokes around 100. That would make the rim 260.

Your rear is much closer to spec. 145g hub, 100g spokes, 330 gram rim = 575.
Front should be 66g hub, 100g spokes, 330 gram rim = 496, + 575 = 1071..

How did yours come in at 1000g when Extralite claims 1080g and the post below shows his wheels' actual weight at 1088g? Is there something special about your build? Scale possibly off?
EVO1 | 5.37kg
EVO3 Coming soon! [6.19kg]
SystemSix | 8.01kg
TCR Advanced SL Disc | 7.35kg
P5 | 9070 Di2 | SISL2 SRM | Enve 7.8 | Disc TBD
T1 | P2Max Type S | Rolf Prima FX58/Zipp Super 9 Disc

Noted that this is a hookless rim. Does that means that we can only use tubeless tyres?
