    Don't know about the XL's, but here is the gram counts on Rhyno Lite/Deore Disc to Azonic Outlaw, which is probably pretty damn close:

    Rhyno Lite
    Front: 1120g
    Rear: 1320g
    Total: 2440g

    Azonic Outlaw
    Front: 1192g
    Rear: 1326g
    Total: 2518g

    Close enough you'll probably never notice the difference, assuming that the XL's are a little heavier that the regular, and that the XTs are a little lighter than Deore, I think weight is a non-issue here. Go on strength/price.

    2539 for the XL's with XT hubs, acc'd to my math, with the numbers taken from
    http://weightweenies.starbike.com/listings.php

    Where'd you get the weight for the Azonics from? It's not Azonicusa.com, is it? Cuz they don't give crap for specs there.

    Found them posted here and wrote the specs down when I was shopping for a wheelset. I have a big list of wheelset weights at home now. As far as I know there is no 20mm XT hub, so I'd buy the Azonics if I were choosing between the two.

    I have had both and they feel very comparable in weight. Go with the Outlaws. QR or 20mm front hub, QR or through axle rear, much faster engagement and more durable freehub. XL's with XT's served me well, but I like the Outlaws so much better.
