My XL 2018 Range C 29'er is 33 lbs with 940 gr Apex Protection tyres and a Huck Norris in the rear tyre.  My 2019 XL Sight C 29'er is 32 lbs with 940 gr Apex Protection tyres. Both bikes run We Are One wheel sets which are not exactly about the low weight more the ride precision and the total lack of needing to true a wheel in 5000 km of single track over two years. Wheel weights do make a difference as one can feel the difference with DH cases (Assegai !!!!!) and heavier inserts. But overall energy expenditure over a climb or a full day is more about total weight and good bike fit so that riding is more natural and less fatiguing. I am expecting my 2020 Optic to build up at about 31 lbs (same tyres) and the 2020 Sight C29 to build out at 33 lbs.
