The wheels are a proto pair I'm working on to be more suitable for riding on UK roads that The old Reynolds KOM's, The rim is a Matt carbon finish and this is a 22 mm wide rim,Im looking at getting some 23.4mm ones to test, Front is built up radial 24h with annodised black nipples which I assemble in house, Rear is 2x1 lacing with 28h. They use the Same Novatec hubs which I fit with an extra thin rubber seal to keep the mud out of. They are meant to be comfy and light,used with swiss stop pads I have no issues with breaking.
The weight is as listed out of box,If you guys want to know anything more ask away! And check out my other project of the DI2 BeOne..
