Looks like a new player in the wheels/components market.

Anyone knows anything about them?

I don't know, first thing that comes to mind is madfiber. I know they're probably different, but that was my first impression.

Yes, there is some design resemblance indeed.

I'm suspicious of the radial spoke design on the rear wheel. Also they don't look aero at all.

3000 US, for wheels from a new manufacturer that weigh 1360g for tubs and have a 100kg weight limit, and haven't been in a wind tunnel? I can't see many people taking these over lightweights, which are slightly more expensive, but 200g lighter and a known commodity.

From the article: "weight of 1,363g, excluding skewers. That's pretty impressive for a 45mm rim depth"

funny, my Light-Bicycle 45mm clinchers with American Classic hubs weigh almost exactly this amount...

Agree with NiFTY
1,363gr and $2,999?
No.
LW, Corima etc. are already miles ahead.

They have nice shape of rim not classic V like LW and Corima
But this spoke patteren....spokes must be stiff to transfer all torque with radial
