I don't even know how much my 2014 enduro 29er weighs but I can keep up and overtake most riders I ride with. I even kept up at Cannock last week with my bruised ribs

14.4 seem Ok to me, my Cannondale Jekyll come in at 14.8KG. I know I could make it lighter, but the bike is set up to take a few hits and keep going etc.

Quick not from factory spec list

1x10 XT drive train (factory sram crank)
Xt brakes
Talas 32 forks 110/150mm (factory fit)
Carbon Renthal bars
Reverb seat post
Hans damf + nobby nicky tyres, both protection type and soft compound.

Just weighed my Orange five 2015,650B,only a rough guide but it came in at 13.8KG ,tubless & running Maxxis shorty's 2.3 TR,folding,triple compound tyre's ! So thats seem's the about right mate! I'm running FOX 34's 150mm & 140mm!

Good for stamina training if alittle on the heavy side anyway!

There was a write up on Enduro mag (online) I of the rider's who was quite a lump was testing (long term) a Orange Alpine 160 & he got the weight down to 14KG which is proper good going! A bit of a dream build tho! :thumbup:

Thanks.

There are very few options to reduce weight on the Enduro Comp without spending stupid money.

I went for a ride today and it was very muddy. The rear Slaughter Control tyre is a relatively smooth fast rolling tyre, I have bought a Purgatory Grid to replace it today. My point being, even the Purgatory, which is quite a chunky 2.3 tyre, only weighed about 755g, very similar to the Slaughter in terms of weight. Only race tyres are going to bring the tyre weight down, and I don't want race tyres.

The cassette is one area that can be easily changed, but expensive. A cassette half the weight is about £150 quid!
I could change the rear D/R but I can't get any significant weight saving there.
The command post is heavy, but I think similar in weight to a Reverb, so little I could do there.
I have magnesium pedals, so no room there!
Maybe the bars and the stem, but again, it's a hefty outlay for maybe 100g reduction. Doesn't seem worth the money.

So the outcome is I'm not worrying about it, if stuff breaks, I will replace with an upgrade. Until then, it stays as it is.

I run a Renthal apex stem 70mm (I think) they come up quite short (design) ! & fat bar's lite , I do like the look of the carbon lite's but £120 buck's which I can't justify spending at the mo!
To be honest weight wise they pretty spot on !

Carbon crank arm's & 1x10 setup!

The wheel & tyre combo is the way to go! but your happy with the current setup, tyre wise is a bit of a black art, I've tried loads of different combo's (expensive I know) Getting a tyre the right size that suit's your riding, has low rolling resistance, & good level's of grip when needed is a pain! do you ride alot of XC ? or more trail AM? I've setup my bike for more trail & AM so hard to find a tyre with low rolling resistance but is tough for aggressive riding !

So I changed the rear tyre today and thought I may as well weigh all the parts.

SRAM PG1030 cassette = 394g (including the lock ring)
160mm Shimano Brake rotor = 140g
Specialized Purgatory Grid = 770g
Roval Fattie, with freehub = 1139g

Stans Flow EX Rim: 530.00 g

DT Swiss Hub: 172.00 g

Spoke type: 144.00 g

Nipple type: 33.86 g

Total = 879.86 g

Add 200g for the rotor(?)

That's 1079g

Add the tyre weight gets me to 1834 which is only 100g less than what I have now (guessing the weight of the brake rotor).

Looks like the Rovals are nice and light weight.


So the Stans Flow rim, spokes, DT Swiss hub is 879g, this is much lighter than my 1139g.
(I am assuming the DT Swiss hub also included the free hub, but I can't be sure)

Just fitted a new cassette to the stache and had a look at the weight differences between what options there are

SRAM XX XG1099 , 208 grams, £220
SRAM XG1080 , 239 grams, £150
SRAM PG1070, 359 grams, £45
SRAM PG1050 , 299 grams (11-32T), £35
SRAM PG1030, 395 grams, £25

Some interesting info, how much bang you want for bucks do you want?
