Cutting such amounts of carbon fibre from the rim section undoubtedly causes high stress points.
They aren't even that light too.
Zipp 404 and Hed Stinger 6's, both 60 mm deep rims, reportedly weigh 1,278 grams and 1,330 grams, respectively. The 3t wheels sound a little portly at around 1,400 grams. Heck, the Zipp carbon clincher (1,557 grams) is only about 150 grams more than the 3t. And I have heard that truing a wheel with nipples at the hub can be time consuming/frustrating because you have to keep changing the hand you hold to the spoke wrench to get at the opposite side spokes. Lastly, the slots in the rim just don't cut it aesthetically. Well, that's my $0.02.

Although Cane Creek stopped making them a few years ago, they were pretty tough wheels, IIRC.
Just to give credit where credit is due, Cane Creek bought CHRONOMETRO who had the patent on the spoking design or hub design or whatever.
And, yes, aside from occasional rim problems, the wheels were bomber...

Seriously guys. When have we last seen a new wheelset that isnt just incremental changes to old design?
Campy AND shimano/sram compatible
Freakishly looking rims and spokes that mount in new manner.
3T now launch your crankset as well!
