Anyone know why these wheels still aren’t available to buy anywhere? In the UK at least.

Seen something floating around on a couple of online stores about a Bora WTO 45. Anyone have anymore info on the weights? The text and quoted weights seem to be about the WTO 60 instead....

Truly so...what happened?

Obviously probably best to wait until the official release but that's much higher than 50 clinchers, no?

Listed weight fram CA is 1483gr for the Bora WTO 45.
The idea is these Bora WTO wheels will replce the Bora One in the future.

Where are you getting any quoted weighs? Campag don’t have them on their site, their b2b, or in their catalogue.

1547 is the Campagnolo website wetght for the 60 rim. Glory just copied the text I guess. Campy gives 733 (sic) for the 77, which could be a missing 1. If that 1547 is right (and they are usually correct in their numbers) then the 45 should be some 50-100g lighter.

So basically guessing?

WTO 77 is a front only wheel.

Oops, didn't notice that. Well if we look at Boras, 35s are 80 grams less than 50s (1405, 1485).
