Aerycs do sell just the rims, but they are 500euro each.
They state 400grams for 45mm

You also have schmolke that sells similar rims.

I`m sure they are all made at Munich composites in Germany.

In the tour forum someone shared this link:

https://www.facebook.com/GermanLightness/photos/pcb.1344514268970709/1344513382304131/?type=3&theater

45mm with carbonti hubs 1234gr. He also has a 41mm clincher with extralite hubs at 1102gr, but the rims don't look braided.

That 41mm rim is the 41C Roadrunner from 77 Composites and is also used in Tune Airways wheels.

Super light but in another price range.

77 Composites also produces the AX Lightness rims.

The owners of the bike components wheels are happy so far and they are sold out at the moment. :D

These look great and very promising! Does anyone here have concrete and personal experience with these wheels yet? I went through all the pages in the German forum which was linked here and it seems like there is an overwhelming positive feedback other than they suggest to use black prince brake pads (instead of the included yellow ones).

Has anyone here had any experience with the Flechtwerk clinchers yet? Thinking they may be a nice mid depth alternative to replace my 202s with without too much of a weight penalty.

They've been out of stock for a while now. I asked a few weeks back and they said they weren't expecting another shipment until July or August.
I too am interested though.

I have read through the threadnaught in the German forums and the consensus is that the wheels are awesome but one should use black prince instead of the included yellow brakepads. I ordered my set this week. To do so you should write the BC (support) team (they are great so far by the way), they will set your order up and put you on the waiting list for delivery.

Dont know about wheelset, but i have positive experience with Bike Components for now (ordering parts from them for few years, and also some issues that they solve it in very positive way to me). So i can just recommend them

BC just mailed me saying my set will be done 14 July. Will try to make some pictures and review them properly as soon as possible.

Now I need to order some wheels and a cassette while waiting for my frame so I hope I can review them as soon as possible. Will try to post some pics and weights as soon as I get home and find the time...

Finally found some time off work to at least unbox the wheels and make some pics for WW. Quite some time left until I can do the first ride on them and give some proper impressions but I hope until then the followng pics will do.

They are 1401 g (incl. the little label), BC claimed 1370 g
