There are several versions of rims. With internal or external nippels and the 20mm version in a heavier one (e.g labeled as 4ZA) with about 400 grams and a lighter one with 250 grams.
Here are some real world weights:
50mm tub, external nipple: 410-435 grams
50mm tub, internal nipple: 435-440 grams
50mm clincher, external nipple: 504-510 grams
82mm tub, internal nipple: 589 grams (have only put one of this on the scale)
Those rims are okay for a budget-priced carbon wheelset. If you want someting better (but not in the price range of Edge, AX and Reynolds) I recomment Corirma rims. Only 100 € more expensive, but supplied with cork brake pads, wheel bag and nipple spanner.
@ johanfl: I have the same wheelset with black hubs here. Mine have PRYM Spokes in them, not Sapim. Could you check whether there's cleary a Sapim label on them or a big P?
BTW: freehub can be easily changed with the Novatec freehub with the needle bearing in it.
little less stiff than duraace 50mm tubular (try on "hand" left - right )
very beautiful finish (hub,spokes,rim 50mm tubular)
i hope try them soon
rider weight limit is 100kg
for 1000g set low profile 90kg
i love taiwan
I'm 115kg.. and I've got a pair of Gavia 50's which have stood up to everything without complaint, flex a LOT less than the SRAM S60's which they replaced (because the rear SRAM broke at the valve stem hole) and after many km's on everything from my rollers, to the notoriously bad local roads, they're still true, still straight and the spokes haven't loosened.
For lightweight guys, yes you can without question find lighter rims, but these do have a place, certainly for heavier guys they're an excellent option.
With some good hub options.. these might be quite interesting..

my name is Jan, between riding my bike I also usually care about Equinox Wheels marketing.
I found this thread and decided to join WW community, so I can be closer to you and join the discussion.
If you have any questions (or doubts) regarding Equinox wheels, you can contact me here or drop me an e-mail jan.habich(at)eqnx.co.
Have a safe ride!
thanks for your question. I assume that you want to build your wheels but we provide spare rims for service purposes only.
For us the wheel means perfectly tuned and tested set. Hole drilling angle, spoke tension, etc. are very important and we can't guarantee things like this to comply with other parts – which can potentially destroy the rim. Therefore we don't sell individual rims to wheel builders.
Hope you understand this.
just FYI, we will be probably revealing our new model in 2015 codenamed MiRacle. Wheelset should be around 1100 grams, but we are still testing and tweaking, so weight can change a little. It's a one-piece wheel with zero tension spokes. And we love it
