They are almost the same as the CPX33 but without the eyelets. Good all around rims mostly sold with built bikes. I have a pair and have had no problems.

Like Bruno already stated, they come with complete bikes. I've got a pair on my cross rig and have no complaints so far (3000+ kilometres).

they are supposed to weigh like 33s (at 480gr?). They are a reliable rim, I think. and also, I think it is CXP, not CPX, but maybe I am wrong.

they came fitted on my C'dale R800 - 2001 with 24 spokes per wheel radial laced with the drive side rear crossed.

I havn't done too many miles on them yet but they give a superb ride and feel responsive and quick on the hills. Mine have Mitchelin Axial Pro tyres fitted.

When I test rode before purchase I also tried one with CXP 21 rims which rode distinctly heavier and felt slower.

these are solid bullet proof rims. Tons of miles and they take a beating. BUT heavy.

I have um on the cross bike and had CXP 21's come as OE on a spec allez. They are bulletproof and heavy. More a little less strong rim but lighter try the open pro.
