Yeah-its a quite a bit deeper section than most alloy rims (24 to 30mm) and isnt too awfully heavy. Could be the aero/alloy leader?!?!? I'd liek to have them for training/training races and races in downpour coniditons and cross on muddy days. And the price is right.
Love my Shamals. The total number of spokes on the silver pair is less than the number of rear spokes on some rear wheels
The depth is 30mm. Thats getting close to the shallower deep sections out there, but of course at 1/5 to 1/7th the price.
Also the text that is advertised by Soul has similarities with the text at the Cho-sen website.
If you look at the Cho-sen website you find the same only with a different brand name….
Rims look a lot like KinLin but Ruff saya that KinLin says that these are not KinLin…
I would not buy these and prefer to build a pair of KinLin light rims on nicer hubs and Sapim CX-Ray spokes….
From 30mm up and deeper you got a noticeable aero advantage.
But for instance a 19mm deep rim drilled for internal nipples (like a KinLin Nb-R) will be less deep but will have aero advantage that is on par because of the internal nipples.
DT RR 1.1 rims are not very aero and have normal nipples The 30mm V shape of the rim SOUL uses will ad a little aero advantage but it will be tiny! Use the right spokes (Sapim CX-Ray or DT Aerolite) and a low spoke count in the front wheel that will ad more to aerodynamics.

If I did go with Souls I would opt for the S4 whihc is like the IRC niobiums deep rims.
Thanks as always for the info.
I was intrigued by a real deep dish alu rim and decided to order a pair of the S4.0s. The price is scary low, so we will see about the quality. Other posts on these wheels showed the S4.0s to be very near the claimed weight and well below the Gipiemmes. The Souls should be here in a few weeks. More later.
The 30mm S3 rim sure seems like a Nb30, but kinlin do a 19mm rim not a 22mm on the S2.
