My bike comes stock with this thing, which must be filled with lead:

It seems like an easy target for weight savings, BUT I cannot seem to find anyone else who makes this shape topper in something carbon/alu. Thoughts? If no other toppers are available in this shape, are there part swaps I could do to lighten it up?

looks similar to one that fits on the Litespeed CR series. don't know of any replacements that are lighter.

- Parlee Altum + DA9150 + Enve SES 4.5 carbon hubs
- Parlee ESX + DA9150 + THM SRM PM + Enve SES 6.7 CK hubs

Bummer. Seems at least 100g heavier than others on the market.
