looks like it's pretty rounded than previous generation.
But who can tell if it has a 24+ width judging by the pics?

Excuse my ignorance, but what is the blue box on the front fork?

Interesting! Was wondering if they were rebadged rims but they look like the real deal. Campy hubs, the G3 spoking and the glossy finish is definitely campy 100%. NICE! :beerchug:

The time chip used during races.

It seems in 2015 there wont be anymore the Bora Ultra Two but just Bora One and Bora Ultra in both 30 and 50mm editions.
The one pictured should be Bora One with the alloy hubs.

Just wish they would do a 27 spoke version for those of us with larger builds.

I'm itching to get a new eps or SR group, but was pretty unsure of the wheels. Are these wider rims? I can't ell in the pic, but they do look more rounded than the other Boras.

And it's very interesting to see a DA BR-9010 rear brake mounted on seatstay rather than hidden under the chainstay on a full campy opted Movistar team bike,
And judging by the colour of the braking pad. Are those Corima cork pads?

Looks very good! The old one was a popular classic and I'm sure an update will draw more fans.

Also the dura ace brakes are due to them being direct mount frameset and campy don't do a direct mount brake.

Not cormia corks they are the new campag carbons.. Really bloody good pads.
More bite than any carbon pad I've used.

Really, the only options for direct mount brakes are;
Shimano, Bontrager, or the newly released Hayes and that's all that come to mind currently on the market to my knowledge.

I still have 2007 original Bora Ultra which are as excellent as they've ever been. Wide Boras would be the ultimate rolling terrain wheelset.

That's Valverde's new Canyon Aeroad CF SLX.
The wheels look rounder, but wider? I wish Campagnolo spend sometimes in windtunnel though. They rarely ever claim aero benefit, despite the good hub.
