and 140$ shipping to Eu, plus 5% of customs plus 24% of VAT... Nope. Corima is better ( and cheaper !) choice. To not mention heritage & "local" warranty.

DT is cheaper, Vision is cheaper, Bora One is ... about same price- so where's the point ?

I reached out before placing the order.
$900 standard build is 20/24 using Pillar PSR1422 spokes, aluminum nipples with in-house hub, not Bitex (I asked). Ready to be shipped in 14 days.
They also do custom builds, 24/28, brass nipples, any custom hub (whatever is available in Taiwan or customer can ship your own). Lead time 60-75 days.
Rims $199/each. Lead time 45 days.

$121 Shipping to USA using postal SAL (21-22 days)
$162 Shipping to USA using postal EMS (4-5 days)

Rim shape is impressive, 27mm wide.

That's a fantastic price... Been looking for a new set of wheels for my gravel bike for a long time and these might have just shot to the top of the list.

Seen these in the flesh at my brother in law's shop. they are very, very nice. was tempted. Much better than chinese wheels and even a step up from gigantex, and even corima. quality of the rim was really good.

Anyone have a link to the $99 rims? I don't see them on their web site.

Site says free shipping on orders over $900. Just order an extra set of $11 brake pads and done.

If you are referring to F45's post above, he said "Rims a buck 99 each?" which in American slang means $199, which may be why you had so much trouble finding what you were looking for on their site.

Even at $199 these seem like a good deal compared to the offerings from Light Bicycle, Farsports, etc... however the shipping seems pretty steep compared to other vendors, unless you are ordering a bunch of them to exceed their $900 free shipping threshold as sfo423 pointed out.
