Don't quote me on it cuz I don't know everything, but, barring Carbon Rims and Ti spokes, I think the low pro rims are the lightest street specific rims available and the WtP Hybrid Hub is also the lightest FC available (that isn't a POS)
Stolen LowPro Rim, WTP Hybrid Hub, Double butted spokes, Alloy Nipples, All HubGuards and Hardware included.

42.4 oz / 2lb 10.4 oz

Fire away y'all.

What do you mean by wafty? I mean, im sure there are stronger rims, but these have not given me any reason to try others. I blast bowls real high, do loads of backwheel stuff and 3s and really have not felt them flex or have any complaints. Even when a few of the spokes are loose, they don't come out of true. I also know how to assemble and true wheels right so that makes a big difference in how well a wheel holds up to load. Not to mention the very noticeable weight benefits.

I'm just not sure if I could trust them myself, but if they're holding up that's good

Had a pretty light setup around 2008 with a 24.7oz front wheel and 35.28oz rear wheel :

WTP Pi hub / Titanium axle / Khe butted spokes / Aluminum nipples / Alienation Deviant rim
PROPER Magnalite cassette / Khe butted spokes / Aluminum nipples / Superstar rim

Considering the freecoaster hub and guards, your is pretty impressively light

I just laced a Fiend Cab V2 to my Federal Rims...feels heavy AF! Feels super burley and solid tho which is kind of what I was aiming for.

The Cab V2 still use a clutch internal design, but without the s***** spring/ball, that's a good thing smile

Why not Alienation Malice rim? Should hold up and is lighter than the Stolen at about 11.5 ounces

It's 28.5mm wide...quite skinny to use on a street setup I think

Ah yes I forgot street riders use very wide tires . The Malice fits more tires below 2.0

The street worthy part is what concerns me. These rims I've been riding street on for over a year with no troubles. A couple scratches from missed grinds, but they're still as straight as day one.

Street Worthy, and Freecoaster Hub are the criteria for the weight class I'm referring to. Ti spokes can be used on street I guess, havent really tried it cuz of the cost tbh. This hub is new, but the rim is well over a year old with pretty regular riding.

So disclaimer.... I'm not saying these rims are stronger than Rollcages or any other super heavily built rims.. just that, (from my experience and in my belief) they are strong ENOUGH for the majority of street riding a person would do. They were literally designed as Street Rims. Some other heavy duty rims, I'm sure have a higher failure point in a controlled test. However, I do believe (from my personal experience with these rims), that the failure points on these rims is still plenty outside of the forces you would normally encounter in most street riding. Also the greater width (than classic rims) and curved shape, if I'm not mistaken, adds more side to side stiffness (less flex) than the rectangular, and more.narrow shape of the majority of rims.

I think, just like the everything with BMX parts, that the important thing is that you like it and are comfortable riding it. I would be stoked to try out that Hybrid hub.

for dinner i made myself a soyrizo ( soy chorizo) burrito. its pretty cheap and tastes dank. i cook the soyrizo til its starting to firm up and blacken, then i crack an egg and add cheese. mix the egg nice while its still runny til its part of the mixture. i then turned the heat almost all thr way down and put an ungodly amount of salsa verde in the pan and let it soak and sizzle. i put it all in a tortilla but if you are really down bad you can put it over rice ( i used minute rice (with a top ramen seasoning packet in the water) a ton cuz shit is a godsend).

But if you are really really down bad i buy frozen california mix frozen veggies (carrots, corn, peas, broccoli) and other shit too. You thaw those out and out em in a pan to blacken and crisp. I add a fuckton of seasoning but for that i got some creole seasoning i use (fuck lawrys shit is too salty and has little flavor). So yeah just let that shit go crazy, then i put it in a bowl and add sriracha.

If you are really really down bad trader joes frizen veggie fried rice is dank, sometimes i add cooked top ramen noodles to the mixure and let em fry with the rice so u got a fuckton more carbs and energy to smoke weed all day
