Just ordered the 507 TCD, obviously haven't received them yet, but have to give kudos to the customer service team (Peri) who patiently answered my increasingly annoying questions over the past week since I kept changing my mind about what I exactly wanted :) looking forward to receiving them and giving them a try!

Victor, although the gravel / all-road market isn't as large as road or MTB, will there be a filament wound 650b/27.5 tubeless rim that has an inner width of 21-23mm coming out?

we have no current plans to filament wind that size... it all depends on demand, so if the demand for this size increases, we will make it.

Received my Rev 507 today, look really good and can't wait to try them, although the frame they are destined for is still a few weeks out yet, so I'll just have to look at them for now ImageImageImage

21mm internal width, quite wide and yes they are the disc brake version, although quite amusingly they did put a sticker on one wheel to regularly check the rim for wear from braking

Would love to hear your riding impressions when you finally have a chance. Have you put them on a scale yet?

I finally built up my rev 35 tcd rims on extralite hubs and I'm impressed with the weight. 401 and 402 for the rims. I've not ridden them but looking forward it. Total weight is1228.1 on my kitchen scale of be surprised if that is real but it's what I have. They have no internal spoke holes so tubeless set up might be easy and No added weight of tape. Took about three hours to get all the nipples in the holes through the presta valve hole. Easy build with everything just turning easy.

I'm on a business trip until 25th Jan, so can't weight them until then. Will do when I get back

I appreciate the guidance is stick to the supplied brake pads but has anyone tried any others?
