So this is a new wheelset for 2016 announced a few weeks back:
http://www.fulcrumwheels.com/en/news/Fu ... 0-Clincher

Details:
1420g
40mm x 24.2mm rim
16/21 stainless steel spokes
USB ceramic hub

I thought I'd start this thread for people's opinions and experiences, as and when the wheelset becomes available to buy.

Has anyone seen them for sale or even tried them yet?

Thanks,
Ed

I can't answer your questions but I am eagerly awaiting this wheelset. I have been on the fence about some Boras for some time but really wanted something mid-depth and 40mm is perfect (the poser in me also likes that they are not Campy branded as I have a Shimano drivetrain). On the other hand, they would have to be available without the atrocious red decals and at a price the same or lower than the UK mail order pricing on the Boras to be a possibility.

Does anybody know if the hub in these are the same as the one in the Bora One?

Looking forward to these too. I'm hopping they are essentially Bora with fulcrum badging and fit perfectly between the 35 and 50.

The Fulcrum site has the tubular version listed but nothing yet for the clincher version. The rim profile looks good. Curiously the tubular version is slightly wider at 24.5mm.

These appear to have the same specs as the Campagnolo Bora One except in a 40mm rim depth. (Bora One comes in 35mm or 50mm rim depth).

I've been wondering about that. There's something about their carbon rims that they won't recommend running tubeless. Perhaps the carbon bead hook isn't as strong as the aluminum bead hook? Honestly I think if one keeps the pressure low enough (i.e. <90psi) it should be OK.

The usual Bike Industry tease, tell us all about new product but no info on availability......

Why they can't produce and then inform I'll never know......but then again I'm not savvy to marketing methodology.....

Maybe after Eurobike?

I was away in August and back now looking for new wheels to complete a supersix build (slooow build :) ).

I was kind of hanging out for the Speed 40C, thinking that they would definitely be out in the shops by now but I still can't find them on the usual online shops.

Any news anyone?

Got Dura Ace on the Supersix otherwise I would have gone with the Bora 50 or possibly 35... keen to use my 'summer' bike now... doh.

Those are some good looking wheels, but at 25mm they are way too narrow. 30mm would be ideal.

@F45 - they are 24.2mm wide and 40mm deep - not sure where you get 25mm from?

Good to know that they are starting to show up - the dark label looks niiiice...

Are you joking. I'd fall over on 30mm wide rims. To have a decent chance of staying upright I'm looking at 50mm min

I would hazard a guess that they're essentially the same rim as the Fulcrum Quattro Carbons (same spoke count front & rear and same 3Diamant brake surface, same 40mm tall profile and 24.2mm ext/17mm int widths and the rim profiles look identical) but with USB hubs and stainless steel spokes which is where the 60g less weight comes from (I have a set of Quattros and they weigh 1482g as opposed to 1420g for the Speed 40's)
