Yes, Carbonara + Big Ride 15x150 hub weigh only 50 grams more than original rigid alloy fork + QR hub. I beach ride mine for over an hour at least every other day, but only since 2 weeks. I picked gloss white then added helicopter tape for more protection. Snow Shoe 2XL in front (3mm nominal clearance) and Juggernaut Pro 4.5 in back (hard tail) balance handling pretty well for me.

I intend to avoid ever biking hub deep in surf.
