That is exactly what i wanted.
But i don't need anything less than 50mm so i'll wait until they release something this wide in 50-58mm range.
BTW: is the inner edge curve between side wall to where spoke hole and valve hole reside quite smooth? it looks quite blunt in the picture.

How would you objectively rate that?
Kind of an absurd statement. Like saying Chinese tubulars offer 1/4 the benefits of a $2,000 set of tubs. I'm guessing probably closer to 95%>

I asked for the rim weight but no informations , the hubs are light tough
Inside width: 17,5 mm a bite conservative
outside width: 24 mm
I think Munich Composites are some of the earliest believers in filament wind rims with Velocite and theirs VENN rims
So far i cant decide between.

Any other recomendations?

Yer i was thinking of that but the difference in weight for rims is not that big so i thought it would be better spent elsewhere like a decent saddle.
Additionally, does anyone have any experience with the hookless bead that they offer? They claim that it will drop 10-15g from the rim weight, be a stronger construction, and be less susceptible to pinch flats. I like the sound of it (I ride my 28c tires at 60-70psi and they say the max is 80psi) but I'm a little nervous having never encountered hookless road rims before.
For reference, I'm a 6'2" 150 pound guy.
