No, they are about 30ish grams heavier.

weird on the Mavic site it says the 721 is 590g, and on the Alex site it says that the Supra D is 580g

alright thanks for the scale shots. I guess you can never rely on claimed weights.

No prob man Salute You can use them as starting point, ex. If something is said to weigh 580g you can safely assume that is within at least +/- 50g in most cases.

also though with that scale shot since you have a spoke holding the hoop steady you should take off like 5g from the weight on the scale. (I know only 5g but still Razz )

It's my picture and I zeroed out the spoke. It was simply there to keep the rim still.

oh then you're way ahead of me. Never mind then. still doesn't seem a bad weight for how strong I've heard they are.

I try Smile Not bad at all man, I highly recommend them, not to mention CR and Reck back them.

Good choice.

Look an NS Traffic.


A great frame. Same geo as a Suburban and the Sub has some of the most dialed geo of any DJ/Street frame at the moment.
