Huh? 303 come in clinchers:

The 303 wheels are ideal for criteriums and excel in road racing.
Triathletes or lightweight riders desiring a wheel with minimal reaction to cross winds will also find the 303 Clincher a fine choice.
Weights = 736g front, 844g rear

I think they are all going to be really close in weights

My set of Token C50's weight was right around 1550 grams (actual weight).
Sapim CX-Ray spokes help with the weight.

Reynolds MV32c................

I just had a set built up by Troy with MV32c rims, Tune hubs, and CX rays come in at 722g for the rear and 591g for the front thats 1313 grams for the set and that included the velo plugs. Feels light and fast. Later!

i'll only list wheel that are under $2k

2008 Shimano DuraAce 7850 50mm = approx1580g
2008 Shimano DureAce 7850CL 24mm = approx 1380g
Bontranger Race XXX Lite clincher = approx 1350g


and if you can look past your 'carbon' specific then i would def look at these:
Campy Shamal Ultra Clincher = approx1395g
HED Ardennes = approx1360g
Mavic R-Sys = approx1355g (poorly rated thou)



also look at the new Eastons

EA90 SLX Clincher = approx 1470g

and if your looking for the absolutely best price per weight wheel then look no further than the:

Easton EC90 SLX tubular
at 1170grams you will not find any similar weight wheel at this price.(approx$1500) Everything else is over $3k+++

Is that right weight for 7850 50mm clinchers?
If I recall correctly, that's close to the tubi weight but I could be wrong....

The tubular 7850 50mm are 1467g

the clincher 7850 50mm are 1695g
http://www.competitivecyclist.com/r...-carbon-clincher-wheelset-4595_323_FALSE.html


I personally think the new 2008 DuraAce 7850CL 24mm are the best for everyday overall use. And at $1200 u cant go wrong really
