Are the Mavic Ksyrium Pro Exalith, HED Ardennes and Vision TriMax the last remaining 'long lasting' black coated aluminium brake track wheels for rim brakes in 2020?

What about:

Token Zenith DHuezz Alloy Clincher
Boyd Altamont Ceramic
AForce Al33

I don't really know how well they last but they `claim' to last and are still available.

Longevity is based on weather conditions.

I've done more than 5000 km on my Altamonts and they basically still look like new. Only dry riding, though. And they break superbly with the BXP pads.

Sweet! What brake pads have you been using on these rims?

Glad to see your coated Altamonts are holding up well. I have a pair that are from the very first batch, and riding in wet Seattle winter, the coating was gone after about 3,000 km.
