...2015-17 Bora wheels are all IDENTICAL, and as u note the new AC3 brake track appears to be only difference on 2018 model. Here is thread with interesting history on Bora wheels beginning with 2015 model.

Do you have any experience of the new brake track? Significant improvement?

One major thing to look for with pre-2018 bora ones is rim width. The rims got fatter only in the past few years - I think around 2015 or 16 - to the 24mm width. It was 20mm or close to that before. Those 24mm ones are also about 100 grams lighter than the older narrower ones.

Regarding question just prior about the latest brake tracks - suggest having a long look at the wheels forum where bora rim tracks are discussed at great lengths.
