If things work out right, they'll be as close as %^&* is to swearing at 1,400g.
The rims themselves are USD $384 shipped per pair. It's either those MTB rims or some 38mm deep carbon clinchers that come in at 60g per rim more.
Nice, very nice. Perhaps I should re-think my idea of cannibalising my current wheels after all. I'd have to check the numbers but I have a feeling that with disc-compatible wheels as light as that then I might be able to do the front disc brake conversion and actually end up with a lighter bike overall instead of a slightly heavier one! Not that I actually care about a few hundred grams either way but it's impressive that it may be possible, and for around $1k all up (fork, brake and wheels).
