Just got mine in yesterday. Haven't had a chance to ride them yet, but did get them weighed up.

1,463 grams with the DT240 hubs. As in...lighter than my Fulcrum 3s. First Glance Here:

took this directly from their site.

"ENVE Grey brake pads are provided with ENVE rims and complete wheelsets. Failure to use the ENVE Grey brake pads will void the warranty."

i dont know much about the pads. i've been told that with these pads, there is almost no wear on the rim, the wear is all on the pad. i want to know if there is a wear indicator that lets you know when it is dangerous to continue to ride the carbon clinchers.

Yeah, wheels came with pads, which I'll be using. There is no specific wear indicator (other than the notches in the pads), but I'll replace them when they're worn, just like any other brake pads.
