Nice. Still using zonda as all round training wheels. Virtually indestructible. Never need truing. Hub is smoother than most wheels i tried. Wide rim is a nice addition.

There is a discussion on the Shamal C17, the Zonda's lighter brother, here: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=139452

However, I have yet to see anyone with them in the wild yet. The Shamals show up in QBP, but when I went to order them earlier this week QBP said that they weren't the C17's after all (even with the C17 part number and specs listed) and that they were actually the previous year's model.

I don't expect much chatter on them until they actually show up and people have them in-hand rather than in their dreams.

looks like a nice improvement on a great wheelset

black brake track would finish the job

I got mine today! They came at 1540g with the Campagnolo freehub.

Let's see if I can have the first ride this weekend, will mount some Conti 4000s in 25c and replace my old Neutron Ultras.

Where did you get them from? Have not found them anywhere yet.

From mantel.com, still 3 left in stock right now.

Very happy so far, comfier than the Neutrons over bad roads as I dropped some pressure, and they feel faster on the flats too.

what's the rim profile like on these? Is it box type as per the previous Zondas, or U-shaped?

wow wicked! Best training wheels out there and no weight increase for the C17 for the Zonda like there was w/ the Shamal, big score.

Campy has a disc version of the new wider Zondas coming out. They look so good in all-black.

Campagnolo say there will be tubeless version of both Shamal C17 and Zonda C17.

But they don't appear anywhere.

Is this because they are coming later or are they all 2 way fit?

Thanks

Where did you see this? I haven't seen anything about it in the news releases on Campy's website. No mention of 2-way fit either.

And I thought I read it regarding Zonda C17 too.

But you are correct, the press release may have mentioned 2 way fit so that's what the press wrote, but Campagnolo doesn't say they will be tubeless compatible on their website.

Which is a shame, Zonda c17 2 way fit would have been a great set of wheels.

This article even quotes Joshua Riddle regarding the c17 2 way fit.
