Saw these pop up in my Instagram feed, but there is little info about the rim available so far. Notwithstanding, they look interesting and will be good to compare to the specs of the current favoured alloy rims.

If theres a 20/24, ~25mm wide, non-eyelet version, my cock will be up.

Even if it's only available in 32/36, 17mm internal, and lighter than 415g it'll be a great rim. Would be a great rim for traveling/training - anything between touring and target races IMO.

@dudemanppl, does this get you up? https://www.dtswiss.com/Components/Rims-Road/RR-411

Nope, cause it doesn't have a black brake track. :)

17.5mm internal, <435g for MOP Exalith.

Not even if you're trying to go for a 'classic' look (not referring to the MOP, but to something like a TB14)?

Sure modern rims don't need eyelets but it seems a bit silly to write a rim off because it has them...

Mah-veek is so desperate for street cred they'd smoke fat rocks with Cracky Joe if the mofo rode a bika and had 50K Insta followers.

Those rims are going to look tite on the track bike I haven't ridden since 2008.

istigatrice

they have eyelets for one of 2 reasons...

nostalgia or cause they are still using the low grade 1990s 6000 series alloy they originals are made of so yeah...
neither is a good reason to have an eyelet rim in 2017..

these won't hit the ground for quite a while and the 'whale' profile may attract lawyers from SRAM

i've reached out to some one building a pair of proto rims for NAHBS about the tension limits.. that'll answer my questions pretty quickly..

nice of you to say hello in Adelaide.. i'm actually pretty nice in person :D

Double eyelets were kind of nice back in the day-never had to shake nipples out of the rim cavity while building.

Even though it's the same shape Mavic have been using for years and is nothing like the Zipp scallops?

Maybe, doubt it though :wink:

@Sugarkane, fair enough, but if it's for nostalgia I wouldn't mind so much, the weight of 435g is competitive IMO. Keep us posted about the tension please!

Exciting - if it's anything like my Ksyrium SLRs, should build a pretty solid wheel.

The thought of these rims with some nice Tune hubs =)

Well I for one am looking forward to this rim being available. I've been pestering Mavic GB as long as Ksyrium/R-SYS/Cosmic SLR wheels have been around for an Exalith rim. Finally it looks as if it will be a reality. They aren't going to be cheap though, With stock OP rims going for nigh on £50 I doubt we'll see change out of £100 per rim.
