Anyone have any experience with this wheel?

I've had a hard time establishing the actual weight, as I've heard their
website leaves out various hub parts from the weight claim. The WW
listing is for a track version. Anyone know what a Shimano 8/9 version
weighs?


thanks in advance, Jens

I'm interested as well. Use ceramic bearing in their hubs. Love to know the durability

I talked to someone who used it, said it was the flexiest wheel theyve ever ridden. And its not durable.

Havnt yet riden one, but the 3 I have seen/played with were being used by visiting Japenese Kiren riders (all regular sub 11secs) so flex cant be to big of a problem.

They are also translusent (slighly see through) so with the sun behind you, your other foot can be seen on the up stroke - takes a second look from the infield to work out whats happening.

Well I got one and can answer my own question:
963 grams complete with shimano 8/9 compatible
hub.

The bearing on non-drive side is sealed, the other
side has cup and cone and loose bearings. The weight
above is for the whole thing unassembled, so
it does not include grease, etc.

Let us all know how the disk feels. Are the loose bearing the ceramic ones or SS.

If you can compare it to any other disk you have riden that would be super.

Thanks in advance
