    weight of snowcat rims?

    hi does anyone know what the actual weight of the snowcat 26 '' rims are for the normal and SL versions- I have googled and searched on bike forums until I am blue in the face but all I can find is that the SL's are 600 grams lighter per pair.

    I am currently trying to decide whether to order the tryall/echo/viz type trials rims or whether it is worth getting the more expensive and difficult option of having the snowcats delivered to Europe.

    It is pretty uncommon to know the rim as it is.

    thanks I saw that but it is not that clear to me as there are two versions of the snowcat rims:

    it says 700 grams but is that for the normal version or the SL version?- the SL is supposed to save 300 grams per rim so does that mean that the SL rim weighs only 400 grams (which seems very light) and the normal snowcat rim 700?. Or is the 700 gram already for the SL version and the normal Snowcat weights 1000 grams?

    If the SLs only weigh 400 grams each then I would definitely order them but if they only weight 700 grams then I might as well get the cheaper and more locally available trial rims.

    if anyone has any info at all, e.g. total wheel weights, or observations about the merits of the snowcats vs trial rims it would very be welcome.
