Is it just me or did more people notice that the pros have sort of switched from high profile carbon wheels (which were mandatory over the past years) to low(er) profile wheels. Nys frequently uses Ksyriums these days and Boom and others are on low profile carbon rims.
And if I ever meet an aardvark, I'm going to step on its damn protruding nasal implement until it couldn't suck up an insect if its life depended on it.

I've been thinking the same. Nys seems to be on R-sys for a lot of races. The low Dura-Ace wheels also seems popular.

Wellens switched to low profile rims because of his weak back.

Nijs is riding 50/50 with CCU/RSYS but i've also noticed a lot of pro's coming back to low profiles wheels.
Alberts seems to ride always with DA 24mm
Boom is often on DA-24mm and sometimes with the 50mm's
Wellens often on his own low profiles wheels + now sometimes on LW ventoux

How long has he had the problem?

"Since about a week back".
