sorry for my ignorance but seeing these thread about these wheels what is the difference about the icon and classic wheels BTW I did not kn ow the extra 6 kg for the classic were the wheels :eek:
The Icon wheels are alloy and tubeless and the Classic wheels are spoked and tubed. and the Icon wheels weigh approximately 6 bags of sugar extra than the Classic

Would you believe someone named Mixup?

You have it backwards, Mixup. The Scrambler models having spokes and tubes weigh 6 kg more than those having cast wheels. That's due to the weight of the inner tubes. Without tubes, wire spoked aluminum wheels probably weigh a bit less than the cast wheels; and that's where the very expensive Italian beauties from Alpina could come into play. Wire spokes and aluminum rims are light, strong, flexible, and can be had in multiple anodized colors, such as blue rims, red spokes, silver hub, and green spoke nipples. I want them, although not in that color scheme; I hope someone decides to manufacture them for the Scrambler.

The rims on my Classic will be converted to tubeless at my first tire change.

Hi Fastwoman, there is no way an innertube could weigh 3kg, 500 grams is probably more like it, the classic is 6.5kg heavier though which seems a lot, mudguards, seat, innertubes all weighing a bit more than the icon adding up to the 6.5kg I guess.

I've just noticed that the urban enduro is 6kg heavier than the icon so on balance I recon the spoked wheels themselves are heavier than the cast alloy ones, say 2kg'ish each, plus another 1kg'ish for the 2 innertubes, plus a few grams here and there for different seat covers and mudguards, it all adds up, won't stop me getting a classic though cos I prefer the look of the spoked wheels, .......dynamically that weight couldn't be in a worse place though!.
