More specifically, what would these feel like compared to a set of sub-1100g 2009 Reynolds DV 46T ULs that do not have the "swirl lip generator". I am most interested in stiffness climbing out of the saddle and stability in crosswinds down big descents. I like the stiffness of my DV 46s but crosswinds on the front wheel on fast downhills always spook me.
They feel faster due to the reduced weight and extremely smooth hubs , the crosswinds performance is the same as the 46's
They are easier to accelerate and keep at speed, whether they are worth the premium is questionable.
The rzr wheelset with cassette, bolt on skewers and veloflex extreme tubulars with tufo tape = 1.686kg
The 46's with with cassette, bolt on skewers and veloflex extreme tubulars with tufo tape = 1.936kg
Now really interested in finding out how I can check out the RZR 46 in person.

I have RZR teams and want to service the hubs this winter
Is there anything out there on how to dissemble the hubs ?
I think they will need to go back to Reynolds in Utah for servicing
Yes that's what the dealers are saying
I have not had a wheel set that I could not do the work my self.
Mad Fibers~Old Light weights etc
I can see in the front hub it looks like it has no axle just pressed in cups ?
I was hopping that somebody out there has worked on these before and could give me a few tips.
My shop has pullers and arbor press with lots adapters made up over the years.
This article my shed some light on the the hub design, half way down the page they mention the bearings are pressed into a inner carbon sleeve which moulds around them and then this inner sleeve is bonded to the outer.

I notice that on the hub shafts there is some very fine threads, maybe these are used with some sort of proprietary bearing puller tool.
You may also need to break the bond between the inner and outer carbon hub shells to get the bearings out and then re bond the hubs again with the new bearings in place.
Given that the bonding of the inner hub shell to the outer shell is the truing mechanism for the wheel, this would be hard to do without the right equipment and process.
It looks like no setting preload or pulling the outer bearing seals and lubing
Thank goodness I got theses cheap
