Anyone seen the new Formula Xero wheels?(3 posts)

Anyone seen the new Formula Xero wheels?Jon(unregistered)

I just got a Supergo catalog, and among the wheelsets shown are two from Formula. Both run 16 spokes, one uses a box-section rim for weight savings, the other an aero rim. Weights for both are around Ksyriums' published weights, and the prices are around $200/set. They look nice, and the price is right, but I wonder if they're like the Performance set, which isn't recommended for heavy use. Any Cali folks seen or tested a pair? Thanks, Jon.

I'm curious too. Are you sure the pricing is per set? Most set prices say "set" in the catalog. On the other hand, the Spinergys are a set price and don't specify "set" and it seems unlikely front and rear wheel price would be the same. They are quoted as being quite light, and since I am not (210), I'll have to hear more on these before ordering. I was in their store a week or so ago and these were not in stock. I'll be going again next week and post something if they are there.

I went to Supergo at lunch today, as promised. No Xeros in the store. I asked a sales guy who knew nothing beyond the catalog and tried to sell me Spinerg R1s instead. Sorry.
