How much weight savings am I looking at if I replace my current XTs hydraulics( with integrated shifter/brake lever) with the Avid Ultimates?
Keep in mind that I would have to get shifter pods to replace my dual control levers.
I went on Shimano's web site and they list the weight of the XT calipers at around 450 grms.and the rotors at around 160 grms. The problem is that it's not clear whether it is per wheel or the whole set. The dual control levers are listed at 450 gr. (I imagine the whole set).
The Avid Ultimate are claimed to be 350 gr. per wheel. I guess a set of XT shifter pods would be around 250-300 gr.
Anybody has some more accurate information on this matter?
