    From manufacturer's website:

    The new version of Shamal" Ultra" wheels is a concentrate of technology: 2-Way Fit" and USB".

    2-Way Fit" makes it possible to mount both tubeless or standard clincher tires on the same wheels, giving riders the possibility of making the best of either solution depending on circumstances.

    USB" means superior smoothness. The renowned Campagnolo hubs are now fitted with ceramic balls of the highest quality that further improve their smoothness of operation. Starting this year the Titanium finish has been replaced by an aggressive Black finish.​

    1200 miles and still loving the wheels. The rear spokes needed a slight tension adjustment last week, but the wheelset is performing beyond expectation so far.

    I'm about to wear out my GP4000's that are currently on there, then I'm gonna make the switch to tubeless. I'll post a review of that set-up afterwards. Price Payed: $1,300.00 Recommended? Yes Pros: see original review Cons: see original review

    I replaced my Ksyrium SL SSCs with these wheels. These are my first impressions after a 20 mile lunch ride with a little bit of everything.

    Fast spin-up, buttery smooth hubs, climb like a scalded-cat, the bike nearly leaps from under you when you stand up and give it power, no noticable flex even under heavy sprinting, super smooth braking surface let me brake later than usual, allows quick swerves around a suicidal dog, plus they just look hot!

    I'm waiting to wear out the rubber on my GP4000s before trying tubeless, so this allowed me a direct comparison between them, the Ksyriums, and the tubular 303s I just got rid of. These wheels absolutely blew me away on that first ride. They even gained me 0.5 mph average over my previous best lunch loop speed.

    I would highly recommend these!

    I have seen price variances between $1,300 and $1,700 online. My LBS gave them to me for $1,300.

    I'll be sure to follow-up with long term reviews as I put more miles on them.

    So far, all-in-all [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] Price Payed: $1,300.00 Recommended? Yes Pros: Light Stiff Fast Cons: None yet
