Although Cane Creek stopped making them a few years ago, they were pretty tough wheels, IIRC.
i understand that they are licensing the nipple-at-hub from Cane Creek. probably have their vendor making the hubs, as the hubs don't look similar, they look identical.

Zipp 404 and Hed Stinger 6's, both 60 mm deep rims, reportedly weigh 1,278 grams and 1,330 grams, respectively. The 3t wheels sound a little portly at around 1,400 grams.
