the weight loss gains get snubbed out a bit by not only going from the 2.5x17 oem rim to a larger stronger 2.5x18'' excel,,,,with a slightly larger rolling diameter as well as a huge increase in available dirt rubber choices,,,

but also the addition of 2 rim-locks that enhance your ability to get power to the ground over a much larger tire pressure range than the oem tubeless scenario!!!!!

there are tradeoffs,,,,in this case your'e not only having your cake and eating it too ,,,, you get eye candy and mo strength ,,,and durability,,and a sense of confidence,,,and i'm sure there's morehelp me out you superlite junkies!!!!
