Kind of madfibre, kind of Corima, kind of Mavic, kind of Lighweight (maybe?) bit of a mixture really but under 1000gms apparently

The spokes are interesting. Standard metal spoke with an airfoil shaped carbon fairing around them.

I think the wheels are interesting looking.
Ladies think Cippolini is interesting looking.
But are they simply a nice looking package filled with questionable additives?
Who will jump and post a real-world review?

Nice, but the price is as high as Corima MCC. So I prefer Corima.
