It sounds pretty interessting:

claimed weight: 145g/pair

forged magnesium

45,- Euro/pair.

Has anyone tested them, yet? If someone's interested I can send them from Germany if they're not available in the US or elsewhere.

I think so. But that's just the claimed weight, I'm still searching for someone who has weighed them himself.

you guys might prefer the Vuelta Mags at 262g for the complete set (front and rear) ...probably about the same price

nino was selling them but i don't know if he has any left

Do you know where to get them in S. Germany area (Munchen or Nurnberg or Regensburg)? For Eur 45, I could be the first to test it.

Cheers,
Ion

I'm sorry, but I don't know a shop there which deals with XLC-parts.
