A few out there, but depends on your brakes. Also the hardware/fittings are where you can also save a lot of weight. Alu or Titanium
Lightest hoses are like the BFO/Tune stuff etc.

Old info:
BFO: 4g/300mm or 13g+/m
Sram Avid: 5.4g
Magura Disc-Tube 2.2: 5.88g
Shimano high power: 6g
Jagwire HFK: 6.5g
