DCR says:

There’s no way round it, this is a heavy rim.  It builds into a very strong and solid wheel, they are even used in tandem applications on a relatively regular basis.  They are surprisingly well made for the price but lack the elegance of something like the DT Swiss TK540 which builds into a much nicer wheelset all round.  The Sputnik is popular with utilitarian wheelsets.  If you wanted something a little narrower and lighter but still utlitarian for touring/winter riding, you may want to consider the Exal LX17.
