Not sure. They are a bit lighter but a standad 53-39 sucks badly climbing even with an 11-34 grafted on the back. Put a 12-25 in the mix and its not fun. A compact 50-34 with 12-25 isn't bad but at the end of a long day its not a lot of fun. Now for a little extra weight you can have a 30t ring in reserve to get you home. I'd rather the extra weight and the option - even if I rarely use it.
