Hi, Thinking of adding a wheelset as above to my collection. plan to use them when the blacktop heads skyward. Question is does anyone here have any personal experience with them? I see they have not been widened like their bigger brothers have. Have other carbon tubulars but just looking to shed a couple of hundred grams..........

Hmmm, looks like i'm on my own with this one. Thinking about the Extralite Hyper climbs as an alternative.

I'm about to get some 4.2s. I'll report back once I have some miles on them. They look really sharp.

I believe the newest release of the Squads have wider internal and external widths. They also have UD, matte, and stealth finishes. Do you know who the local distributor is? In North America checkout Blacksmith Cycle

From Xentis-USA site,

"New in 2016
-Following customer’s requests the following wheels are now made with a rim width of 24.6mm (instead 20mm): Squad 4.2 Silver Line (clincher and tubular), Squad 5.8 Silver Line tubular, and Squad 7.5 clincher."

So it appears the Squad 2.5 for tubular and clincher will stay skinny but the Squad 4.2 goes wide in both and the Squad 5.8 tubular and Squad 7.5 clincher are wide.
Strange that the Squad 5.8 clincher stays narrow, I probably would have picked up the 5.8 too if it had gone wide...maybe next year

They are amazing! I absolutely love the entire range. Have raced/trained on everything from 2.5s up to 7.5s

How is the braking compared to an aluminum wheel? I've got a set of the Squad 2.5 Silverline clinchers on order from starbike, hopefully it should be shipping in a few weeks.

Mine are on par in the dry, and only slightly lag behind in the wet, yet leaps and bounds ahead of any other carbon I've ridden.

My clincher version should be shipped today or tomorrow (credit card was just charged), so hopefully I'll have at least my initial unboxing review and weights in a couple weeks

What brake pads are you using with your Xentis wheels?
