 idk, think of a freeride bike, or a dh , yeah dh, who cares about the weight but on a bmx weight is important, if its lower its easier to do certain tricks, try doing an ollie or like a tailwhip. good luck(30lbs of bike-freeride) lol

 300g is over half a pound of weight savings thats alot if its from your wheels for example you will most def feel the difference there will be less rotational mass
