    Funn Wheel Weight

    Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone knew the weight of a complete funn 48h 24" rear wheel? I wanted to compare it to my 32h 26" mavic ex729 on xt hub. Thanks.

    I don't think FUNN released the weights. I'd say expect around 900 for the rim.

    I'm pretty sure the 26" version weighs in around 950.

    don't know exactly, but I'll say this, 48 = HEAVY
    I don't even think many bmx pros are using 48hole wheelsets anymore...

    I've often wondered about the weights of all of the FUNN wheelsets too... but never found much info. would be interesting to see...
    Schralp it Heavy.

    The thing is that if you use 48 spokes, you can go to a lighter rim. There's no point in running 48 spokes and a heavy arse rim. I think most 36h wheels will hold up just fine. It's really all about the build quality.
