Interesting, wonder if there are ridges on the rim or those lines are just graphics?

Wonder if their patent will go as well as Zipp's :lol:

Interesting. Do they offer anything with a narrower ID? These seem gravel focused.

Patent might go through but if it's challenged it will get dropped

They are road and gravel oriented. Seems to be the new trend in wheels and rim width.

Campagnolo (Fulcrum) still sticks to the 3-pawl hub design where other brands like DT (Roval,...), Enve, Zipp, chris King,... all focus on ratchet designs.
I wonder how long they will continu with pawls.

If it ain't broke don't fix it.

DT had problems with engagement with exp release. They did fix it eventually but every new design may encounter problems in production run.

Not sure why 3-pawl design is wrong or inferior. It just work. Can't believe it'd slow anyone down.

So why choose speed 42 over these?

Sharq has a 42/47 depth...very interested in ride reviews..and final vam for 28mm tyres

With Goodyear releasing a vector tyre for zipp internal width of 25mm to be 30mm once installed, even more interested in the Sharq as it has a 25mm internal width...

I was curious about the same thing. I would add in the new Campagnolo Bora WTO 45 C23. Was originally considering them, but these Sharq wheels seem very interesting. Anyone ride both the Sharq and the other Fulcrum or Campagnolo models to offer some insights between them?
