Is there some fat rubber on those wheels or are these just the new veloflex carbon in 23mm?
Looks like a nice rim shape. Cant really see how wide they are but the tub fits a bit nicer in the tire bed than on the older rims.

Not a big a fan internal nipples..

Mayby someone can translate and see if the Italian dude has something more to say?

Any news on what they did with the rear hub spacing thingy?
Boy, what am I going to feel stupid with al my wheels build around dura ace hubs :?

I didn't realise spoke count was related to speed...

Less spokes = more aero

At least that's the theory behind the statement. I'm not so sure I agree....

Less spokes do help aero performance. See Corima aero+ e.g.

25mm wide toroidal rim (fatter on inside diameter) - 4mm widder than 2011 rims
50mm deep rim
cassete is closer to spokes ( for 11 speed duraace group)
new aluminium hubs

or here Update (fro slovenian fans) :mrgreen:

Any idea if the 2013 line up will include toroidal clinchers?
