With heavy dua ace skewers :/ I wonder how close they are to 6.8 on the f12s.

I could take a peak in the Ineos truck today. Multiple Lightweight wheels in there!

It is interesting cause they've gone by the wayside due to belief that their aero sux vs the new stuff (not to mention braking) and there's no need for the outright light weight anyways cause of the 6.8 rule.....but....Skineos would never go for this without having tested it and found it faster.

^.. they are not faster (aero wise) there might be other benefits to them.
