How much does your gravel bike weigh? (why are they so heavy?)

Especially for light weight issues concerning cyclocross / touring bikes & parts.

Are those OEM chainrings on the Ultegra crankset for the Stigmata? If not, what are they?
Those are Ultegra 46/36 rings.

Here's my rig: 2020 Revolt Advanced 0 - Medium
Weight when stock: 9.3 kg / 20.5 lbs

A bit disapointed weightwise - as the baseline weight I found online called for 8.4 kg - no pedals. In reality, it came closer to 8.6kg - no pedals
Bike rides really good, overall I'm pretty happy with it.

Final Weight - after some upgrades: 8.65 kg / 19.06 lbs

Nice one! Giant is really stepping up their game with their latest paint colors.

I'm scratching my head trying to figure out where the extra 1 kg lives on mine...on yours you have the 1X sram group & the lighter seatpost, not sure what wheels & tire size combo you have, that's where the biggest savings can be found.

Failing that, the 2021 frame/forks must be substantially lighter than the 2020's. I thought I read that on another thread.

Wheels (200-300g) cassette (50g) F/F/SP/ (150-200g) crankset (100-150g) shifting kit (100-150g) go a long way in explaining the kilo difference. But yes, the new Revolts look really tempting especially with the new seatpost config and refined frame geo

As stated by yinzerniner above it's a combination of things. While the bike doesn't look flash, pretty much every part on it is the lightest (or close to) version of that part available that is still durable and not crazy Darimo/Mcfk light.

Every bolt is Titanium also. (edit) also looking at your spreadsheet, my wheels alone are 275g lighter. I've been doing this bike thing for a while and at 65kg I can get away with light parts without worrying about durability which is my main concern as I race this bike.
Thanks for the info. My main suspect was the wheelset. What size frame is it? Mine is a medium - is yours a small?

The other area is the paint, I could easily have an extra 90 -100 gr of paint, as this color scheme has a white/ blue masked off pattern.

I saw the same issue with my 2 TCR’s - I have a Rabobank painted one that has 3 masked colors ( white, blue, orange)
