Rims look very aero profile like the Zipp 101s. Is that rim tape or is it a snap in ring. Looks really nice.

It's a pre- installed tape and seems like it's going to be very durable yet light. AM valves are nice as well and they have a specially shaped plastic piece that allows for the aero profile rim to work with the tubeless valve. If Campagnolo could have worked this out then the Bullets would already be available.

Those look very nice indeed..Really digging AM's valve stem design, with the little rubber piece profiled for rim.

Very good weight and it looks like it's quite well made, but please tell me that all of those graphics on the wheels are decals and can be removed...way too many of them.

^^agreed. Hutchinson tires are shit. Super excited to see that Schwalbe will have an Ultremo ZX tubeless out later this year, never thought it would happen TBH.

The valves do look awesome and they are only $12.50 a pair from AM directly. I like the ruber contour ring on the outside. Still interested in that tape and if it's better than stans

Their website states this for weights:

WEIGHT Front 519 gr Rear 660 gr Pair 1179 gr

Overall 7% heavier than advertised.

Might be the weight without rim tape and valves.

It will be interesting to compare this with DA 7900 C24 TL or The Fulcrums 2 way. It seems to be lighter than DA or Fulcrum. I am in the market for TL wheel and leaning toward the DA, but I ll wait little bit longer to see if this AC TL is good also.
