Same skewers, both 11-speed 11-28 cassettes.

All in:

404 - 2200 grams

303 - 2240 grams
As above, just got those new clinchers. Bare - no skewers, no tires, no cassette (with rim tape) they weigh the same as the same profile tubulars, with larger tires ready to ride (1790g).

I understand the clincher attraction - I had my first flat in the last two years this AM and it only cost me a tube. But for performance they are not even close. I'm really close to being willing to pay $110/flat/year and use the cell phone and just have a better ride.
