New Dt Swiss DICUT series wheels with reynolds rims
swirl lip generators on te rim are very small
spokes are a little bend out of the rim
good handling in the wind, have tested them with a time trial at 7 bft
Good finish of the carbon and braking is reasonable.

I have the 46T and they are great, but I must confess that these straight pull hubs are far slower than the carboceramic ones that you can find on much cheaper wheels such as the older Aeolus 5.0 from Bontrager, which I also own and roll 10 times more than these super-wheels!

Having a bit of resistance when rolling a wheel by hand isn't necessarily a bad thing. It probably just means that high quality bearing races are being used which means solid longevity. I would rather have some resistance in my hub rather than have resistance free races (which feel great by hand) but will only lead to premature bearing wear.
