So I bought the Ultra 50s 2016 a week ago and it's still in shipment, but the 2017 versions came out just today on CRC.

Anyone know the major/ minor differences/ upgrades that Campy did to the wheels?

According to the catalogues, I can't really tell anything different.

whilst there have been photos of boras used by movistar showing an extra set of arc-shape grooves cut in the brake track, there has been no announcement of it being include on production models (happy to be corrected if anyone has seen anything). therefore, i would suggest that 2017 models are the same as 2016 models (and i have been checking as i plan to buy a set of bora 35 ones soon...)

I also don't think there's been any update on the Boras since their last release in 2015.

yup, that seems to be the case, I compared the Campa 2016 and 2017 brochures and they are virtually identical for the Bora range. No mention of improvements to brake track or anything else.

Does Campagnolo sell factory seconds?

At the bike shop I go to, a customer came in with a new set of new Bora Ultra from a reputable online shop and the set seems to have imperfections.

You mean refurbished sets? I think by law they are required to say that they are refurbished sets and not brand new.

Yeah it looked like factory seconds or a refurbished set.

Do dealers even sell refurbished sets? Never came across them online before...

Alright. Seems like it's similar. No idea why the 2017 model costs bloody $4400 whilst they are pushing to let the 2016 go at 40% off.

I've just ordered a set of 2016 Bora Ultra 50 clinchers. For those that have Bora Ultras would you recommend 23mm or 25mm? I plan on using Vittoria Corsa G+

I'd use 23mm on the front and 25mm on the rear. That's what I'm doing now using Conti GP4Ks. 23mm is perfectly aero for this rim but the 25mm on the back provides a planted feel on climbs and very good ride quality at 90psi.

I've got the Michelin power comp setup 25,25. There's a lot of science behind the sizes for front and rear but I personally just choose to go 25 and 25, science or not.
