They now also come in your choice of nipple and hub end cap colors too. Sean offered me a bunch of choices, but I settled on red. The 4.0's come with new decals as well, so if you like the stealth look you should ask him if he's making these for the 2.0s as well.

Decals def. look cool. Where are the brake tracks? Are they anodized black?

No, I'm guessing the pic is of the new S4.0s that are now offered as carbon clincher. The alloy ones still have a machined track. Mine were shipped out of Singapore last wednesday, I'm guessing I should be expecting them any day now. Also, they apparently come in white now too.

Wheels arrived today! They look smick as!

And incredibly my mother kept a straight face when instead of opening the box I went immediately to the kitchen to grab the scales :P

1340g total. Right on the money I'd say!


Ride report will have to wait though, as I'm planning for these to go on my 595 build.

I am so jealous. According to USPS, mine have been "Inbound into Customs" for the past 3 days. Which means once they do get through customs, they still have to ship here from San Francisco. Ahh! Its killing me!

you mean the decals? got the decals for a few bucks from soul.
compared to realdesign sonic 1300+g wheelset, these are definitely less flexy. wasnt after the ride anyway but the weight and so far, so good. i use these as spare wheels to my carbon tubs when its rainy or when i flat and need to have the tubs patched.

Did you weigh the wheels without the stickers? Curious what the weight savings would be removing them... :wink:

Guessing the stickers are the same size they are replacing, long shot I know but do you still have the removed stickers in the bin?

If so, you could weigh those?
