Heard some rumoyrs about new Tune components, new bottom bracket that will only work with their ---- six cranks. Weighs 120 grams. And they are testing carbon cranks, under 200 grams for both at the moment. There will be new seats 1 at about 45 grams and one at about 25 grams. There will also be a special edition of ZIPP 202 rims for wheels that will be about 220 grams per rim.

25 grams for a saddle? under 200 for cranks? Sounds unbelievable but comes from a good source. We will just have to wait and see

Where did you hear they are going to be 220g? I don't think thats right. I know someone who has weighed the new rims at 255g and 270g. Target weigh is around 160g I beleive.

Reynolds however has a 220g rim from there Cirro SV Kom wheels.

On the Zipp 303 tune got soem special ones for their Skyline wheels that weighed about 250 grams Zipp used to make lighter rims for thier Z range wheels in the first year they came out with the Z3, I think these are probably the rims that Tune got. Looking at Zipp's Rims still vary between normal and Z range normal = 284 Z range 303 260, so I asume this is probably the arrangement that Tune has with Zipp with regards to the 202
These rims are not available to the public though as rim only
