It's a little unlikely they'll be that light, given the NeutronU weigh ~1500.

Seen Euruses ( or is it Euri? :lol: ) come in at 1490, so i don't see why it should be unlikely, that the 50 come in at ca. 1520 :noidea:
We'll see though

I doubt it , but if they do come around that weight, i'll get a set too lol.

If you look at the zipp 303 clincher with 44mm rim comes at around 1623grams.

They are claiming the Bullet 50 is 1755g, the Bullet Ultra is 1590 (for both 2-way fit and regular clincher).

Ultra version 80 is 1770g, 105 is 1998g. All claimed.

1. Any information as to when these wheels will be available?

2. Will you be able to purchase these individually eg 50 front 80 rear?

Thanks

That's one point.. the second point is the name! Bullet for an italian (designed) product?

My 2 cents.

Decals look plain awful. Still heavy. The name? Bullet? Man, why can't you call them with an Italian name???

Because "proiettile" would not be pronounced by properly by anyone outside of Italy.

Campagnolo was already apparently too difficult that the market made "Campy" a seemingly official term... even though calling something "campy" is not a compliment.

"Campy" is just an Americanism.

They are late to the party though even so these will be better than many rivals due to the hubs and build quality.

Should concentrate on updating the excellent Boras ... more aero rim shape and rear stiffness please.

Interesting news about Eurus:

"Also joining Campagnolo's Bullet at the Eurobike show in Germany in a few weeks will be the recently launched Eurus 50mm all-aluminium-rimmed wheel..."

Doesn't make sense to me as the sister company already has deep dish carbon clinchers and they are light. My only guess they are marketing a product at a price point to fill in gaps in the product range and to place other products that thier competitors already have. Its an old marketing story!
