These were at the International show. They are very well built and light as hell. Nice quality.

Did not see a price or a location where they can be purchased. What is the cost?

I just looked. Pure Bike Porn there! You see that cushdrive? I sure don't like the big solid look of the wheels, but I'm sure there WAY light; being carbon fiber...

I could only see email and phone number info. Apparently if you're interested you have to call them personally. They have an EU address.

They look a lot nicer in person. No advertised price at the show either and I didn't ask. Figured I'd check it out on-line. Maybe I will get pricing at the dealer expo in Feb

carbon fiber wheels dont hold heat so as for keeping the tire warm or hot not as good as metal .

Yeah, I saw those there too. I wasn't really impressed. They are more expensive than BST's and the quality doesn't look nearly as good. They are obviously a two piece construction, and the fabric is horrible, and it is easy to see that it is stretched and pulled. A dead giveaway that these do not use prepreg fabric, and probably not and autoclave.

Another forum I was on was discussing the wheels and their construction and one of their sales representatives or business partner logged on and started talking all kinds of smack to anyone with questions. Seemed very unprofessional. I've also looked at their website. Not only was it not very good, they didn't have any info about their process or where they are made or who owns/runs the company.

Look sexy as hell, but anytime there's no pricing and listing (only CBR on the fitment list) I tend to get a bit nervous. Good points by B.Miller on what he found as well. I have way too many other things on my plate to spend my bike $$ on fisrt before going hoop crazy

Duct tape can't fix stupid...but it sure helps muffle the sound

Well, if they were rude to you I can only imagine what kind of words they will have for me. That is just eye candy for me....suspension first!

According to their site, they're made in Slovenia.
