Front is 88 but isn't the rear hub more like 250g?

The weights have gone up. I think the front v9 is now 100g and the rear v9 is like 240g.

I know this is WW but considering all of the complaints you hear about (older/lighter) Zipp hubs I'd say that's a good thing.

They used to just change the model name according to the weight, but I see they didn't update the names according to the weight gains in the last few years.
