Does anyone have experience actually riding these?

20% off if you pay for it all upfront. Interested to see what the reaction is from Lightweight as this wheel seems to be stiffer (2 options available) and more aero + tubeless ready.

Seems to tick all the boxes.

Bloody hell

AUS$6900, made in Melbourne, at current exchange rates that’s NZ$7500 plus import costs so that NZ$8k+

They need to be amazing, I paid NZ$2k for Caden wheels, weight sub 1100g, also made in Oz

Yep, fair point...
From the information I think the rims are made in Taiwan
DeCadence, lighter more expensive version, hubs made in Germany
Caden hubs, regular wheels, made in Taiwan

The latest version of the Decadence wheels' hubs are made in Taiwan by Simplus/Sim+.
