    12 lb 8 oz (5.7 kg)

    Miscellaneous The Challenger stem is back friends... and yes, it's exactly the same as the original. So obviously, this hunk of awesome is much too heavy for you new-school-weight-whores at 12.8 oz. Any heavier and you might get too buff from the work out and be unable to fit in your sister's jeans...bummer, I know
