The size large 5010 with an R2x build weighed 31 lb 12 oz (14.41 kg). Unlike the Bronson, the unit we weighed straight off the showroom floor was slightly heavier than the 31.36lb/14.23 kg claimed on their site. To be fair, I’m not sure what size bike they were weighing AND the demo bike we used was setup with tubes.

The R1X version of the 5010 retails for the same price as the model we weighed, but ships with a 1x SRAM drivetrain - which should help shave some weight.

    Not the best weighting technique there with the handlebar touching the stand. The bike should be completely and entirely in the air, save for the hook on the scale.
