1654g is not bad for those wheels.

Campagnolo are about 8 years too late to market with this product!

Oh, and some photos of them on the bike would be nice

I do not know the Cosmic SL but with the bullets I'm happy :-)

It'd be really interesting to know the results of those tests - have they been published yet?

Anyone who has these wheels - esp. the Bullet Ultra 50s or Fulcrum Red Wind XLR 50s - please post weights and tell us how they ride! :)

Can't find any reviews yet, other than this one from bike radar of the standard (heavier) Bullets. Looks positive though -

Yes, they where published last autumn in our magazine But I can give the some results here:

Campagnolo Bullet Ultra 50 mm: 925 gram/ 736 gram / 71,2 Nm/degree / 102,4 Nm/degree
Shimano Dura-Ace WH-7900-C50-CL: 937 gram / 768 gram / 71,5 Nm/degree / 122 Nm/degree

We also tested Zipp 404 Firecrest Clincher and ENVE 65 clincher :wink:

Name recycling? They already had the name from the old shifters. If the decals are the same as current Campag wheels they're easily removed.
As you say the weight matches / betters the competition and throw in quality hubs they're certainly worth considering.

Campagnolo first used the Bullet name over a decade ago now, but I guess it is still a registered product name. Perhaps we can one day expect to see the re-emergence of Olympus? And who was the idiot that chose Daytona?

In what issue of Cykelmagasinet did you test the wheels?

I am looking at a set of these (non ultra) as they arent too expensive. I haven been unable to find any reviews anywhere on this wheelset. Does anyone here have a set and what do you think of them?

I am interested in how aero they are and I am interested in what their actual weight is, is it the same as actual weight?

They are to go onto a Triathlon/Ironman bike.
