Front wheel weight without skewers or rim tape = 804 grams
Rear wheel weight without skewers or rim tape = 920 grams
Total = 1724 grams. Advertised weight = 1610 grams
Good thing it was on sale...

The XTR 11-32 cassette hit the flange. I had to use a SRAM 11-34 cassette instead
I heard Spinergy has the worst customer service in the industry, taking months to return warrantied hubs.

It took me a year and half to get get one replacement spoke for a Spinergy Spox wheel and then when I finally got them I had to buy five to because they had a minimum amount of spokes you had to order.

I was afraid of that as I've worked on a few customer's Spox wheels

Cassette bodies weren't the best and replacements were hard to get, but I heard that recently, the CS at Spinergy has been very good. We'll see...
The wheel had it's first ride today. It rides lighter than the scale would indicate...

The Xyclone discs are the lightest spinning wheels I've ever ridden, and I wish I didn't have to send my demo set back :(

Spinergy

Don't buy any product from Spinergy. I have three wheels sets two road one mtnbike. All are poorly made. Spinergy is a dreadful company to deal with. I have broken spokes and cassette bodies. Spinergy would not honor their warranty. The wheels now make a great gate to the compost pile.

They are my backup wheels and are currently on my SS (which, funny enough, I probably ride more than any of my other bikes). They have been strong and reliable. I've only had 1 issue with the rear hubs getting a little loose but it was fixed in about 10 seconds with 2- 6mm hex wrenches. The only downside is I can't use XTR (960) cassettes with them but otherwise, they've been great and smooth!
