ultralight tubular build.

so ive recently come into possesion of 2 sun mistral tubular rims. me and my coach traded- i gave him a easton delta force base bar for his used race rims. i work at a bike shop and have looked over the rims and everything is fine. my idea for the build was to use

chris king r45 front and rear hubs
dt swiss aerolight spokes
dt swiss prolock nipples

basically build a bit more durable wheelset than my other race tubulars wich are velomax. carbon rims ect that i got for free from a team mate. the weight of these are about 1100 grams.
if anybody know how much the sun rims might weight i would appreciate it. target weight of this wheelset is <1350. or any ideas about materials used let me know.

Shop doesn't have a scale?

IIRC Mistrals come in around the 350g area. Have you checked weightweenies?
