I'm on the hunt for a new wheelset for an '08 Nomad. The Nomad is setup for aggressive trail riding and I 've been running Mavic 823 UST with King hubs and they've been great (absolutely impossible to knock out of true, etc) BUT they are heavy!!! I'm about 170lbs and really don't launch any drops over 3' so I really think these are overkill for me.

I'm in the market for something similar (would like to stay Mavic rims, love the tubeless) but need less weight and maybe not quite as bombproof. I'm wondering what other aggressive trail riders are running, etc.

I was looking at rim weights on Mavic 717s or and 819s and they seem quite a bit less than my current 823s.

Thanks in advance for any input....
