Looks like Zabel was riding some new deep rim Shimano carbon wheels today in Spain. They have the same hubs as the 7800 wheels but the rims are noticeably deeper. They seem to have some kind of decal branding so I don't think it's a case of undercover rims and such.

They look nice, whatever they turn out to be.

They look very similar to the Corima Medium's that Jan and his team were running earlier this year.

I am unsure of wether or not these are them, but they do look quite similar.

Does anyone know if you can put one of those Dura-Ace 'special hubs' on a regular rim, or is the spoking orientation different?

Hi, this are the proto-types of the new shimano wheels, also some guys in the Credit Agricole are riding these wheel (Thor Hushov) The rim is the same "type" of carbon like the low Shimano wheels, so not the same carbon structure like Corima, ....

Thanks for the first-hand info, Johan. :D

OT: Will you be with Mr. Bookmaker again next year?

Finally Hushovd gets some real equipment. He used Dura-Ace Alu clincher wheels in TdF, while all the other guys rolled around on carbon wheels with tubulars.
