Received my Soul S2.0 wheelset from Soul bikes in singapore this week. Photos and weights...

Front wheel:

Rear wheel:

That equals 1317g (w/o QR). I don't think my scales are very very accurate but they're not bad.

Incidently, thats exactly their claimed weight on the Soul website.

The wheels seem well built, and the hubs are smooth. Hopefully set them up tomorrow and will go for a test ride if its not raining.

Who makes the rims for the Soul S4.0 that uses 40mm deep aluminum rims?

Yep, that's right. Those hubs were on a number of other light wheelsets at the Taipei show.
