Hi All,

Currently have a nicely set up 2015 Evo thats light enough at approx 6.5kg.

Other than weight saving is worth upgrading to the Hi Mod version same years or later?

What will i notice if anything ?

I was looking covetously at supersix himods for a year or two. Seems the himods are around 150gr lighter than the non himods. (could be wrong) The 2016- fork is new and lighter than the old one.

How much is ~200gr worth to you?

Now I've changed my aim to getting a Focus Izalco Max. Check it out. It's got a better reputation for reliability and it's equally light or lighter even. Standard 27.2mm seatpost, pf30 = cheap light cranks, alloy headset bearings, good stiffness numbers.

A user stripped the paint and got to 660gr. Fork ~280gr. And the weight doesn't differ as much from frameset to frameset. No need to worry as much about getting one from a heavy batch. :thumbup:
