On paper these don't seem exactly groundbreaking as whilst they are light, they don't really beat deeper offerings from Mavic, Lightweight, Reynolds etc. I wonder what the performance is like...
They also seem very similar to the Corima MCC wheels.
Axles and bearings are tiny. If you do gain anything in aero and weight, you'd loose in axle flex and bearing wear/binding.
I asked if someone saw an actual pro team using these.
I personnally never found anything about pros using them, most use the F4R in hilly stages...

Really hard to believe, any hints/links etc very welcome.
Phill is right, the Ghost wheel set of FFWD is just an off the shelf product from Taiwan (as almost all of their wheels): http://yuniper.com/ghost.html
Stephen,you will remember your above statement in an other topic about far east production .
The "Ghost" wheelset is a fine example of an innovative far east "no name" product rebranded and sold with an exorbitant price by a western company.
