That explains also by seeing the other Campagnolo 12 topic.

But a team like Lotto cannot sort out something for the 12s that works for their riders?

De Gendt is posting pics where it looks like he's riding Bora WTO 60 wheels but they are unbranded for some reason.
Few weeks ago Viviani posted on his Instagram Stories a picture of his De Rosa track bike with a Campagnolo Bora front wheel (back was hidden).
The next day Cofidis posted that picture but removed with PS the logos.

Start to see these Nimbl shoes here and there.
Apparently made in Italy but no exact location of the brand.
Reminds a lot the Verducci minus the toe plastic protection.

Loving the look of those shoes! Mostly because I think the shape would really suit me. Extremely expensive though... I did see in their terms and conditions that they are governed by the laws of the Netherlands, maybe a Dutch company?

Are the 8 holes other than the 3 cleat holes just for ventilation, or perhaps weight saving?

Looking closely on the picture you will see it's only mounting hardware for 3 holes. The website also says 3 hole cleats only. A bit sad I would say.

Those are obviously vents.

Drilling holes on the sole does look a bit "cheap" compared to the shaped vents of other manufacturers, though there is probably very little difference in terms of functionality. It looks like a home made "drillium" project more than a comercial product, especially a 450€ comercial product.

Other than that they look nice, though, and the Bont style carbon sole that wraps around the sides of the feet will probably work well.

You probably know. Froome doesn't like disc - yet. Happy to see honesty.
