Someone, totally independent of the cycling industry, is not going to shell out to run that sort of test.
You know that's not how it works. There's simply no ROI to justify the outlay.
But that is not to say a mag could not run the test ala the previous test Caley did. Whether you feel it's unbiased or not is up to you.

I had to take screen shots and upload them that way since the images were not showing up otherwise, hence the substandard quality of the shots.
Picked up a pair of the Yoeleo 23mm wide carbon clinchers, UD Matte built with Novatec's for local road racing and midweek time trials when i really dont want to be stranded on tubs with a disc and tri spoke should they P-------. 4 days to dispatch, 2 days to reach the UK and a week sat in you know where. Packaging was good as you might hope for and remarkably had not been thrown around too much.
Like the pictures of the farsports there is a small barely visible lip in places between the lower part of the brake track and the main deep section. Rim beds were a little dusty but smooth and easilly sorted out with a baby wipe before laying down the rim tape. Front Wheel came in at just over 700g - forgot to weigh the rear. 23mm wide and i think around 16mm inside. The finish is good.. i mean really smart,
Only issue i had was that the valve hole was pretty damn tight . There was some excess material in the hole that i had to punch out with a valve extender - If you're using valve stems that are threaded all the way to the base then these add to the tightness. Oh and the rim hooks - save your best swear words for getting the last bit of the tyre on. Tight is not the word! You would not want to be changing a tube in the rain outdoors on these!
Initial Impressions - ride quality - im struggling to tell the difference between a Corsa Evo CX tub on a 50mm gigantex rim and these. Shod them in 23mm Fortezzas which i've used for years on Ksyriums and are my go to tyre. I've run them in the past on narrow rims at 8.5 - 9 bar.
On the new wheels running them at 7 bar gives a similar same ride, but noticalbly more assured when cornering. I've only done around an hour on them in the dry due to the crap weather were having here but raced both days over the weekend on them - once on the TT bike in the wet, and a 40mile RR that was run off in light snow. For me not to worry / notice them in those conditions says something in itself. If anything the ride is a little more - im struggling for the word - rigid would be unfair, but they seem to hold the road and feedback more than tubs but not in a negative way - Braking was fine - not too grabby even in the wet just have to modulate your braking on them. Spin up to speed just fine and stay there but then the ride comes into its own round the corners..
Can't post any pics up as a new member but will be happy to mail them to another member to post up - will follow this up once i've got use to them with more long term post
