Easton XC One -or- Fulcrum Red Metal 5

Just as the title says...

I'm looking at getting a new wheel-set and have narrowed it down to these two choices.

Easton XC One (2009) $300

Fulcrum Red Metal 5 $260

Both have favorable reviews from what I have read thus far.
I am light (140 lbs), and ride a mix of local singletrack and asphalt.
I try not to leave the ground with my bike as much as I can.

My goal is to shed some weight from my bike. Currently I have a Rhynolyte/Deore Disc wheel-set with Panaracer Fire XC tires.

I will be getting some Schwalbe Racing Ralph Evo tires, and may look to going tubeless.

Thanks for any advice.
