And as time goes on it gets still lighter as the spokes pop out one by one.No
"The Ksyrium S is 60g lighter than the former Ksyrium UST while also being wider, stronger and laterally stiffer. Stiffness is optimized using Fore technology. The upper bridge remains undrilled, optimizing strength and rigidity, and it doesn't require the use of a rim tape, which saves another 30g per wheel."
Yes, who would have thought that keeping the "upper bridge undrilled" and therefore not using it to help take the radial stress of the spoke (with eyeletting) would make such a difference. Still the wheels look very swish and benefit from 'Fore tapeless tubeless' technology which makes them "4 times more resistant to fatigue stress".And as time goes on it gets still lighter as the spokes pop out one by one.
