Just curious as to the weight of the front and back wheel individually? Somewhere collectively around 1895g's?

Sounds about right. They're sturdy and comfy, not fast and responsive.

I've got them on a 2017 Contend SL1. If you like I can weigh them with the stock tyres on, but I can't be bothered removing the tubes and tyres :)

I have them on my TCR Advanced 2017. I am going to be purchasing a Rear SLR 0 65mm Disc and a front SLR 0 42mm Disc. Same set up as the stock 2018 Propels.

To be honest, I love the look of the deep dish wheels. Giant states that a pair of SLR 0 65's (including hub) is 1615g and a pair of SLR 0 42's are 1475.

A rear 65 and a front 42 will probably be around 1520 or thereabouts i presume

The PR-2 wheels with QR skewers and disc rotors attached came to:
- 1.095kg front
- 1.305kg rear (1.625kg incl cassette, 105 11-32 = 320g).

Minus ~130g per wheel for the stock rotors and ~35-40g for F/R QR skewers you roughly get:
- 930g front
- 1140g rear

Thanks for that. Quite heavy. I suppose it is all relative though! Lose 3 kilos of fat and you can compensate! Mainly for aesthetics as I am not a racer.
