I wonder what is the source of the all-aluminium-50mm-eurus news. Campagnolo website does not mention such euruses.

Doesn't make sense to me as the sister company already has deep dish carbon clinchers and they are light.

Fulcrum?

I was wondering the same. The pics on road.cc only the standard mid profile eurus rims.

I would be surprised if those wheels really exist (and if they get the same name as a low-profile wheel). Would make a nice successor to the old and beloved Shamal though. Technology does exist, e.g. Alex has a 50mm alu rim (R700), just can't imagine Campagnolo would be operating such a niche market especially given how long it took to make an alucarbon clincher - either the wheels would be too heavy, or too cheap compared to their Bullet range.

Deep dish?

Does Campag have another wheel making sister company other than Fulcrum? I'm not aware of any deep section carbon clincher Fulcrum wheels. The XLR are tubs.

And anyways, 1590g compares fine to other alloy rim, carbon fairing wheels at 50mm.

HED Jet 4 FR 1685g (45mm)
Cosmic SLR 1595g (52mm)
Zipp 404 (C/A) 1658g (58mm)
Zipp 303 1623g (44mm)

Even the 404 Firecrest is 1557g with all the downsides of a carbon braking surface.

Having said that I'm sure these wheels are designed to get a slice of the market trend for deep section wheels. And the name is awfully tacky for Campag.

Name recycling? They already had the name from the old shifters. If the decals are the same as current Campag wheels they're easily removed.
As you say the weight matches / betters the competition and throw in quality hubs they're certainly worth considering.

The non-ultra version of the bullet wheels seem to have cheaper hubs.

Those hubs look like the hubs from the current Scirocco wheels.

The bullet ultra hubs seem to be the nice ones currently used starting from the Zonda level.

I have a set of the Bullet Ultra 50 right now. This version looks like they have the hubs of the Bora One but upgraded with CULT bearings (this hub also looks like. They runs ultra smooth like nothing else I have ever tried.

It'd be really interesting to know the results of those tests - have they been published yet?

Anyone who has these wheels - esp. the Bullet Ultra 50s or Fulcrum Red Wind XLR 50s - please post weights and tell us how they ride! :)

Can't find any reviews yet, other than this one from bike radar of the standard (heavier) Bullets. Looks positive though -
