How much do your Aero and Non-Aero wheels weigh?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

How much do your Aero and Non-Aero wheels weigh?

Just curious what your wheels weigh. What type they are and if they are Aero or not?

My wheels are Enve 6.7 Tubular wheels with Chris King hubs. Aero wheels. Weigh 1495 grams.

How about yours. I am wondering what a good set of non Aero wheels weight.

Thanks

My wheels go whichever way I tell them to. They are quite docile.

Your wheels go both ways?

do they need different tires for that?

Please let me know. Thanks.
my Stan's wheels weigh about 1275g, and are durable enough for everyday use. The tires don't cost an insane amount, and a puncture is cheap to fix.

My Bouwmeester wheels are 1010g. It's scary going down hill fast on them, not designed for that.

My Vuelta Corsa Pros weigh 2KG give or take, without the tubes and tires. My other set is about a pound more.

added: Oh, Those are non-aero.

I have a pair of non-Aero Dura Ace C24 clinchers that weigh 1380g. Pretty dang light.

An aero wheelset is approximately 100-200g heavier than a non-aero wheelset. That's the total difference. Both wheelset can run the same hubs, tires/tubes and spokes, so the only difference is the rim weight.

If the difference is larger than that its because you're comparing apples and oranges.

His non-aero wheels are boat anchors, but not all of them are.

I thought that weight was a mistake and looked it up. Interesting Enve tubulars only weight 100g or so less than clinchers. So there's probably not much difference at all with tires.

Cost only matters if you can't afford them. That is not my concern.

o 100 grams or 1 quarter of a pound is the difference between good aero wheels and good non-aero wheels?
