RB1K just arrived. Looks very good, but is it normal for this frame in L to tip the scale at 1250g? :shock:
Claimed weight is 950g for M unpainted. OK, I didn´t really expect anything under 1000g, but 300g difference? Even the older ISP versions were lighter.
Could it be the result of using some lower grade carbon, or anything?
300g for paint is normal

Of course, but only if the paint coat is 1cm thick
