This is a warranty replacement. It is a worrying failure, sign of poor engineering

Is that a brand new, still in the wrapper, wheel?

And people complain about Zipp hubs. At least you can ride them for a while :)
Very worrying and not inspiring indeed.

I can be wrong, and have plenty of examples for that ;)

Although in fairness, how many Vittoria wheels have you seen on the road? I've never seen any

Bontrager (i.e. DT Swiss) had a similar failure mode back in the mid-2000's was it? Mine cracked apart sitting in my bike room. Bonty/Trek replaced under warranty no questions asked. Still have the replacement wheels in the garage. Stuff happens.

All Zipp's which exist are after of before recall ;) there are no other Zipp's . Enough to not consider such crap at all.

if you haven't seen any Vittoria wheels.... maybe they don't exist ? :mrgreen:
