No? The name say it, light is light, reinforced is reinforced, why would the light hub be better than the reinforced? The light one is not made for trials, someone broke one while riding trials, I dont remember who though.

I think the purple one has reinforced hub and cranks, whereas the red one has light hub and cranks.

There might be a difference in the post too?
black try-all = 1120grams
white try-all = 1050grams

aluminum is a type of metal but I'm not sure if they use it any more but white metal is a chromium and has a mixture of aluminum in it. It does break easily but I think now that it could be either aluminum or white metal. They use to use white metal on old car bumpers but that's all I know about the stuff

Better is the CC for trials and I like the sticky more for everything else. To bad I like to do trials a lot.

Here is a thread all about trials tires.

the try-all is more grippy so I don't think that the CC is better than the try-all for trial. but you could invest in the Monty eagle claw it is a bit fatter than the others

They are basically about even for trials, but I have had the Sticky slip on something I could do with the CC easier both have their advantages.
Monty Eagle Claw would be a good one like you said. Never tried one of those though, supposed to be an "upgrade" of the CC.

So do you think K1 is okay?

So I have been thinking and K1 just isn't like it used to be and I think that it is quite possible that within the next year or two it could go out of business x@ (I hope not) but since Yoggi left the team and they're not making too many more items what do you guys think is the future of K1?

Last but not least it says on the K1 website that the prices have gone down and whats up with that?
