Weight difference between a standard build and a Clydesdale?

Postby guillo2 » August 1st, 2016, 11:08 am

Hello,

I couldn't find this on the forums, so I figured I could ask the group directly.

On the full Carbon Flo 45's, what is the difference in weight between the two different builds?

Assuming the only thing that changes are the spokes, then I would say it is only around 20 grams per wheel. Now if the hubs also change (I would think they would), then there is an additional weight increase to accommodate the additional spokes and to possibly handle the higher loads.

Any information would be greatly appreciated!

The weight increase is roughly 30-40 grams depending on the build and tolerances. That is a very small weight increase, and the improved wheel strength is far more important for a heavier rider.

I hope that helps,
