New wheels for Petacchi. Ksyrium hubs and spoked, but a new rim:

Braking surface looks black to me, not the same as the "old" ksyrium sl IMHO:

Ooo come on please..... it's just the light conditions (a night criterium)!

En then, even if Mavic would have made some special wheels for him, would he use them in a stupid criterium?

Could be of course but just compare the color of the spokes with the color of the rim:
normal ksyriums: spokes and rim have the same color
this one: to me its clear that the rim is darker then the spokes

Brilliant like the Guiness ads: "Brilliant"- e.g. the six pack? and beer in a bottle?

Brilliant like the shine on a non-existant rim, dark anodised version :lol:

Bejeezus!

Just because two things are the same colour, doesn't mean they reflect light the same under all conditions. The spokes are painted silver, and the rim is anodised/polished, of course it behaves differently under different lighting.

Doesn't explain those Giants though!

The rims are made by Shimano. They use the same anodising technique as for the special dark-anodised DA crancks. :twinkle:

Could not resist: the Shimano crank dead thread: anyone who knows anything about alum finishes and has looked at the crank in controlled lighting situations knows (not guesses) that there are two different anodized finishes on the cranks- one is clear and one is grey. It is not about light reflection or any other nonsense, there are, I repeat, two finishes-[/code]

one question about the shimano cranks, what would it cost to anodised them? does anyone know where that could be done?
