    Velocity Synergy 650B actual weight.

    Velocity says it's 480 grams, their store page says 450 grams , and universal cycles says 586 grams. Anybody here actually weighed one?

    I can weigh one for you Monday, shoot me an email at seely [at] velocityusa [dot] com to remind me. I know 586 is incorrect, I'm pretty sure that's our 650B Atlas weight. We're working on updating out site with current weights, but the store page should be the most up-to-date.

    I would appreciate that!

    Pretty sure mine were under advertised weight, ~440gr or so.

    Great to hear that, sounds more reasonable for that size box rim.

    I couldn't find our rim scale today, but I came up with around 460g using a digital postal scale -- it was tough getting that rim to sit still, though!

    Thanks for that, I just wanted a ballpark figure , 586 seemed way heavy for what it is.
