Yup, the weight of a bike by itself doesn't really dictate how it rides in my opinion, I'd take frame stiffness and efficiency over lightweight (with flex) any day of the week for climbing and descending... this is backed by testing data. Whilst there are weight differences across the KS2 range due to 3 different tubesets, 2 shock cage thicknesses, rear triangle tubes and links... the focus hasn't been on focused on weight, but more the ride characteristic each delivers. While ride character can't be written down as an exact number like weight can, it's far more important... yet often overlooked for this very reason. It's not quantifiable unfortunately, and will vary depending on rider weight and ability.
