They're light, but $100? You can get dugasts for that much.

heule sais they have one hell of grip when it's dry. they're like 34 or 35 mm wide and f***ing light(310 grams, i think). heule's "world record complete front wheel" is 885 grams with those tubulars(zipp, tune, dt).

because of the rim? i'm not 100% sure if it's the old rim or the cyclocross one. he has several sets with both rim types.

I saw what was supposedly the first one in the US at the Crank Brothers race in October. It's really light, and the casing seems softer than other Tufos. I just wonder what the actual ride will be like. If the choice is $100 for Tufo and $100 for Dugast I'd still go Dugast for racing, at least on our courses in New England.
