    Ax Lightness

    ax-lightness: Premium Road 24

    870 grams?! That's crazy light especially for a 20/24 setup. Uran from Sky is apparently using these. At 215 grams per rim doesn't that seem 'too light'? As in hit one wrong bump and it's all over light?

    I've built a set of wheels at 815g before and they are not as bad as you think. They are definitely not for 200lbs. riders, but if you are 150~170 range, you will be fine. The set was built for a 150lbs racer.

    I have a set of SRT 24's. Very ridable. Surprisingly stiff for their weight but still, not really the stiffest wheelset around.
