Yes has anyone heard anything more?

I've been looking for pictures from the Tour, but can't tell if these are being used?

Been told Bardiani has been on them for quite some time and had some rubbing issue with their frames.

I got some info. The new bora are called bora ultra 50. They have new hubs, the rims are 24.2mm wide compared to 20.5mm bora ultra two. The pair weighs in at 1267grams. The braking surface has the same diamant treatment like the ultra 35.
The bora ultra 35 will also be updated with a 24.2mm wide rim.

1) wider => check
2) better braking => check
3) LIGHTER => check check check (at least claimed ;) )

My Boras 35 are 10grams ligher than claimed....so I expect the new claimed weights to be correct as well.

Any word on the Fulcrum versions? Would be nice to see wider versions of the Fulcrum Racing Speed line :D

How long does it usually take for newly revealed wheels to hit the market?

Has anyone confirmed "wider" also includes re-profiling the trailing edge to improve crosswind performance?
