|Looks like a Rolf or Shimano wheel. I'd say a variation, not a redesign.

|At least someone had the presence of mind to acknowledge that fewer higher tensioned spokes are actually a stress riser at the eyelet. Imagine trying to extrude this section and the machining cost of each rim.... |
....and the price is?
|Nope, just futzed with the rim.||jw25|

|It's unique, but probably doesn't make much difference, and might even decrease aerodynamics over a conventional deep-dish rim. But it look neat...|
|Same concept as the special Ksyriums USPS is using...||Bruno S|

|look at the Ks USPS uses. They have been machined in the same way to reduce weight. I like the idea and think its a true innovation. Manufacturing processes have limited the cross-section of the rim to remain constant. It seems logical to have more material in some segments (where the spokes tie) and less in others.|| |
