Being called the 'Racing Zero Nite'. Apparently they have an Exalith-style coating - being dubbed 'Plasma' - and milled brake surface?

Standard product details are on Wiggle

A blow for Mavic as that black brake track was the one USP they had

A blow to all us tub riders too ... the days when black rims meant tubs was nicely elitist

Looks like they aren't "wide" as speculated in the Bora thread.

Interested to find out how durable the coating is compared to Exalith.

Wheels are looking good. Hopefully will be avail in tubular as well. Interesting that you have to use carbon pads.

Wld be nice but wld be suprised if they are available in tub ... are Shamals the only tub available shallow alloy rimmed wheel in the Campag/Fulcrum range?

Zondas in tub would be really nice ... i.e. reasonably light, nice hubs, steel spokes, cheap ...

Yes and they are great but a neutron ultra tub would be good and so would be this new one.

Just asked Wiggle if they can confirm the external rim width. I have some faith but to me it doesn't look like 25mm on the pictures from the blog :|

These are looking nice but the >>>>> pattern is not a great idea.
The all red zero were the nicest ever IMHO.

From the pics they look like the standard 20.5mm width. Not sure how they could make them lighter if they were 23 or 25mm wide.

Presumably there will soon be a revised Shamal Ultra equivalent?

The old Neutron (non-ultra) tubs still work great and you can run an 11 speed cassette on them, no problems. Official winning wheels of Maggie at P-R and Ballan at RVV. I scored mine used for around 200 Eur.
