32 hole has been available for a while now. They are almost completely sold out, with less than 6 left in stock. For some reason they aren't listed on our site, but they are available through us.

Just ordered a set and they are slightly delayed because of Pacenti's new decals being applied. Thought I would share a pic of the new decals with you guys, I think its pretty sweet, reminds me of a BMW M3 logo.

My build is 28/24 cx-ray laced to pewter chris king r45s. Should be nice.

These rims are the jam. Better finish than the HED Belgiums they have replaced.

I recently bought a set of wheels with Pacenti SL23 rims and am happy with them. I'll be comparing them to a set of Easton EA90 RT, since those are the only other set of wide rim wheels I have. Although I have had several wheels in the past, with mostly high spoke count box section rims.

front wheel:
Pacenti SL23
Hope Mono RS
Sapim CX Ray 20 radial

rear wheel
Pacenti SL23
Hope Mono RS
Sapim CX Ray 12 x2 nds
Sapim CX Sprint 12 x2 ds

Compared to the Easton EA90 RT, on my BMC GF01 with full Dura Ace group:

weight: They both weigh the same within a few grams, with (heavy) tubeless rimtape installed
aero: Pacenti has a slightly higher and slightly wider rim that is more rounded, the spokes are bladed. So the custom set should be slightly more aero. As expected this difference cannot be felt. On my first trip I took them on a ride I do every couple of weeks. At the same hearrate I had an increase of 0.4% in speed compared to my previous best time. So for me it seems they are equally fast
stiffness: The custom set feels a LOT stiffer then the Eastons. The bike corners a lot better now. I expected the rear to be stiffer because of the x2 lacing on both sides vs the radial lacing nds on the Eastons. But the front also feels stiffer. So I'm very happy with that. I always thought the geometry of the GF01 provided sloppy steering, but I'm starting to think part of this was due to the Easton wheels.
comfort: both wheelsets feel equally comfortable. Tires, inner tubes and pressure is the same on both sets. Both set of wheels feel more comfortable then my other high count box section wheels.
braking: The Eastons have excellent brake tracks. Both stopping power and modulation are top. But the stopping power is nothing compared to the Pacenti. First time I pulled the brake resulted in a skid. They require a bit more careful modulation compared to the Eastons.
