Does anybody know anything about Ritchey's WCS™ Protocol Wheels ?

Weight? Price? Availability?

Comments? They look nice to me... not too far from AC, as design and appearance.

Bye, BENZ.

If you ask me they look like a blend of Ksyriums and the AM Classic wheel. Rim depth looks like 25-30mm, and the spokes on them are huge, just like ksyriums. I think they are available early next year, guessing a retail of $700, ritchey wheels usually arn't to highly priced. Available now if you buy the Fuji 04 Team Issue.

Ciao Benz,

The only way that's possible is... I don't really know!

Prices on AC site are probably "end-user", while Italian retailer accesses to "importer" prices.
So I guess that Italian retailer applies smaller charges to wheels than Manufacturer itself!

I admit that those are only theories... If anybody knows exact reasons... let us know please.

Bye, Benz.
