    Bontrager RXXXL Carbon Rims

    Anybody have experience with them? I'm considering buying the carbon hoops and was wondering what they weigh. I will lace them up with DT Swiss 190s centerlock hubs. Thoughts?

    Trek doesn't quote the weight of the rim alone, but some math comparing them to Race X Lites that use the same hubs and spokes, makes the rims out to be close to he weight of Crests. Treks newest RXXXL wheels use an aluinum rim and have DT-built hubs and seem to be lighter than the older carbon wheels.

    The new XXX wheels are awesome! I checked some out at my LBS the other day, interested to see how they hold up.
