has anyone ever ridden or even seen these wheels in person? i can pick up a used set on the cheap, but it would be kind of a shot in the dark since they're so rare. i know they have ceramic bearings and i think the rims might be zipp 404s,

I don't own a set, but I have riden them. They are really nice and I also suspect that they are just rebadged 404's. I liked them, but I am a bit too big for them. I am around 210 on a good day, so carbon rims hold no allure for me, but these felt really nice and I haven't heard or seen anything negative about their durability.

They are not zipp rims but acutally less deep then the 404s. Try around 50-52mm deep I believe. They only make them for campy as I understand it
