I was thinking about this today and how it will make bikes that don’t currently have ABS heavier, though not by as much as I thought it would.

According to a number of articles I looked at current ABS units weigh from 700 grams to 1.6kg depending on whether the unit provides ‘advanced’ ABS or not.
