Open Mold Rims Aero Tests?

Are there any open mold rims that have aero data published or that have been tested independently? This info is hard enough to find for big brand wheels so I'm just curious if there is anything out there either comparing them to a known wheel or just a white paper.

Not many who use open moulds will generally go to the expense of running a full aero test. Came across this earlier today which may help? I remember reading an article somewhere where these guys were pretty open about using open mould rim shapes.

Their 56mm open mould wheel is faster than a Zipp 404 Firecrest :shock:
