I know the Extralites are lighter by around 40gms all up, but can anyone provide a shifting performance comparison? I'd be running them 2016 Super Record with a Lightning crankset standard 110BCD.

I've heard mixed reviews of the Extralites but none really of the CT2s so am unsure which may have the better shifting/stiffness. I don't want to go carbon for lighter still (also out of my budget), nor Praxis for heavier, but stiff as.

Any feedback would be appreciated please

I started with Praxis then Fibre Lyte now on Extralite. I cant compare between the Stronglight but i can tell you the Extralite are great. No problems so far and the shifting is perfect. Great weight to as you pointed out.
The Praxis are the best but heavy and the Fibre Lyte were just bloody awful, but did look good.
