I was wondering the same. The pics on road.cc only the standard mid profile eurus rims.
amt wrote:Doesn't make sense to me as the sister company already has deep dish carbon clinchers and they are light. My only guess they are marketing a product at a price point to fill in gaps in the product range and to place other products that thier competitors already have. Its an old marketing story!
Does Campag have another wheel making sister company other than Fulcrum? I'm not aware of any deep section carbon clincher Fulcrum wheels. The XLR are tubs.
And anyways, 1590g compares fine to other alloy rim, carbon fairing wheels at 50mm.
HED Jet 4 FR 1685g (45mm)
Cosmic SLR 1595g (52mm)
Zipp 404 (C/A) 1658g (58mm)
Zipp 303 1623g (44mm)
Even the 404 Firecrest is 1557g with all the downsides of a carbon braking surface.
Having said that I'm sure these wheels are designed to get a slice of the market trend for deep section wheels. And the name is awfully tacky for Campag.

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.

Those hubs look like the hubs from the current Scirocco wheels.

The bullet ultra hubs seem to be the nice ones currently used starting from the Zonda level.
Oh, and some photos of them on the bike would be nice

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 -
