Any news on this? As someone who bought a 9000 C50 wheelset with a purported weight of 1672 grams, only to find out it actually weighs in at over 1800, I am officially anti-Shimano. How can they get away with such blatant false advertising?

I think they want to sell C40 with C35 rim diameter.
omg...

Whatever they want to call it, still a decent wheelset.

Decent is a good way to describe them...are they exceptional or special in any way? Nope. Kind of like the Mazda 3.

Despite all the negative press on the specs for the clincher and the criticism that the C40 should still be a C35, they are a great high quality wheel-set with aluminum braking and carbon lightness, just as the C35's, with some additional design enhancement in the rear hub. I love mine, and the with the prices coming down, you can snag a set for under $1100 if you shop around. I have no regrets with mine.

I find my Mazda 3 exceptionally better than the POS benz I replaced.
