Does anyone have anything to say about these? Preferably the new 25mm wide model.

i have 80s but not the new wider model. i did have the wider bora one 35s though and note the braking is better.

the 80s are fantastic wheels. better than they sound like they'll be on the spec sheet. they look crazy and they seem to be very fast. amazingly they don't catch side wind anywhere near as bad as even other 50 mm wheels i have like lightweights or mad fiber.

bearings of course are very good as they are ultras with the cup/cone setup. they seem very stiff wheels. fantastic for racing and for fast rides.

for me they really look so exciting and i love riding them. i'm sure the main difference with the new wider ones will be the improved braking surface but that said with swiss stop race pros mine are great anyway (in dry of course).

a photo or 2.

Nice. How come you haven't got the new SRM on the Bianchi?
