I know these are pretty new, but anyone have any experience with them?

I'll most likely run tubes, but like the option of tubeless. I'm leaning towards the DTs, as I love their hubs. Also, I read somewhere that the finish comes off the brake tracks of the fulcrum version of the mille, so I'm assuming (maybe incorrectly) the same will happen with the milles. I kinda wish the DTs had a bit more internal width, and depth more in the 25-28mm range.

Wait, $1200 for aluminum wheels? In case you haven't seen this review http://granfondo-cycling.com/first-ride ... xic-wheels

I do own a set of DT Swiss RR21 dicut. I rode them through the Alps and Dolomites during the haute route, great wheels, but I do have a rattling noise coming from the rear wheel on steep roads. It's not related to power output, it really seems to happen more based on the gradient. I suspect is either hub or spokes related...

I've had them for a month and did a weekend in the lakes with them. Also about 500km by now. They're really solid wheels and are great for climbing. Brake track is still black and nothing has worn off. Ride them in the wet once. Going down some super steep descents cause the brake to squeal when getting really hot but apparently that goes away. It only happens when I'm properly cooking the brakes and not on your average descent. Hubs are fairly quiet unlike standard Dt Swiss 240s hubs, but they do give a nice buzz. The rim makes the sound resonate a bit and sound like a space ship. I personally love them. They're wide enough with asymmetric profiles on the rear. Kind of aero, and doesn't get effected by cross winds as much as my old fulcrum quattros

I heavily questioned the rep from our DT swiss distributor about the longevity of the OXIC coating and he swears by it, offered to get on of there team riders to come up and show her wheels that have been used for 1000's of miles etc.

Though only time will tell as mavic make similar claims about the exalith and they seem to go pretty quickly

We'll see in a while I guess but just FYI, they're 1500g not the claimed 1435 or whatever
