I only have older sets - these are all quite close to the stated weight. Same for the front and derailleurs.

Maybe someone else has put a newer set on a set of scales?

I've seen that too on other posts, the weird thing is the Rival shifter tend to go lighter, 325g on this post: viewtopic.php?f=10&t=154636

Sorry, the hoods I don't want to possibly damage - but I have a spare set from 2017, a tad lighter than yours.

The clamps seem to be the same.

thanks a lot, 5 g from hood and clamp

i'm beginning to suspect that the seller used force body red lever, is that possible?

AFAIK the bodies are the same across all shifters?

Force also uses a heavier shifter body. Exact same internals.

dudemanppl said Force uses a heavier shifter body. Exact same internals.

The body seem identical, only difference is alloy speed lever on Force and some ti screw on Red. As the last poste said (thread above), maybe the brake lever on Force is composit and carbon on Red. We look at less than 10g difference, so it can't have big difference.

Red has different shifter body, clamp, shift lever. What else?

Lighter hoods?

Clamps are the same between both, only the shift lever and body are different.
