Recently, I got my tubeless kit from the UK and brought it back to France to make the conversion for my Scott and to see what all the fuss was about. To begin with my wheelset (rims, hubs, spokes, nipples, tape, tyres and tubes) weighed 1.76kg front and 2.31kg rear; total 4.07kg (nearly half the weight of the bike! – wow!) After making the conversion with the Stan’s latex and valves the weight was 1.64kg front and 2.19kg rear; total 3.83kg saving 240g overall. While not a monumental weight it’s still something and, especially with 29ers, every gram you can save on the wheels will/should(!) make a difference.
