Now that you've got that image, let's get back to this thread: Lightweight wheels.
Years later, they are *STILL* the ultimate in production wheels. Just like THM Carbones... still the bull's balls, still the king of the hill.
Yes, other wheels have been built since then... but those that are lighter are all customs. Lightweights are still available off-the-shelf so to say, and still lighter. If you're in Europe, they're also easily serviceable (North America and other continental issues not withstanding).
Lightweights: still very aero, still incredibly stiff, still incredibly light.
I think this thread is still relevant.
Besides, we're still waiting for the supposed "Lightweight Killer" in the form of Reynold's RZR wheels to see how they last... or even come out of the oven. Other companies have attempted to go as light, as aero, and as stiff in a production wheelset. Lightweights are still the most desired.
Though who knows, maybe it is an elaborate sponsor scheme to make it look like these pros are actually spending out of their own pocket. With that said, I'd buy a set of lightweights in a heartbeat if I had the money.
