    dt swiss 1.6 tubeless ready wheel set weight

    Does anybody know what the weight of the element 2013 970 or 970bc edition wheel set weighs? Looking for an upgrade, any suggestions? I own a 970 bc edition, fairly aggressive 190pds rider looking for a lighter wheel set. (I can't seem to find this particular wheel set on the dt swiss site?? for weight spec)
    Tks

    dt swiss 1.6 tubeless ready wheel set weight

    1770 grams, I think, since similar to DT 1600 spline 29.

    I am also considering changing, looking at Mavic SLR, different carbon wheels, but would like to keep the price below 1200 $, whats your ideas?

    I' am also pretty much between the mavic SLR, the roval carbon's or maybe the stan's arch ex. They all have respectable weight, pretty easy to set up tubless from what I read and seem pretty strong. The Dt swiss are a pain to set up tubeless. The Stan's arch are less expensive also. So I'am a bit torn between the three. The mavics seem to have either great and bad reviews, and so do the stan's. But most are good for both. The roval's seem to only have great reviews but they're the priciest!
