DCR Wheels says:
The Major Tom will not offer ground breaking weight because it is not designed for that. Nevertheless 432g is good for a tubular rim that is 23mm wide. Running a rim 2mm wider than a standard version will allow for a wider tubular. The mid section profile will also improve stiffeness over a conventional flat box section tubular. The larger braking surface will also be particularly useful on cyclocross circuits. It is unlikely to offer the same strength as the Ambrosio Nemesis, it will certainly be stronger than the Ambrosio Crono.
