 The video shots are mint.....darn good work. Wheels look interesting. Remind me a little of my old skyways on my Raleigh Ultra

 Skyway tuff 2 mags, yes mate I had those in yellow on my old diamondback bmx!

 Look at them all, through the darkness I am bringing. They're not sad at all. They're actually singing. They ride without juicers. They ride without blenders. They ride without flungers, cabdabblers, and spenglers!

 Give these wheels to Danny MacAskill to test out in his next video.

 I have been a rider since the freestyle days. I used to use sky way mags. These new carbon wheels look sick and give me that feeling of nostalgia. I can't wait to buy a pair for my trek.

 I had a pair of Spins when they first came out and I loved them. That was back when V-brakes were the rage and my wheels were never out of true. The hubs were easily serviceable and the wheels themselves took some major hits. My only gripe would be the lateral flex. I agree with jodapatrick about rim width. Can’t wait to try them someday!

 Need to see more about them. What is the quality of the hub internals? The design looks a bit odd, very 90’s retro, but that’s because we’re used to seeing spokes. However spoked wheels have been in existence for a loooong time. There may be a reason for that. They have drawbacks of course. Maintenance being one of them. But I also like being able to pick your hub, your hoop and your spokes. I’m not downing these new wheels just need more data.

 We should have a deeper look with PB in spring time - you'll get your info' fix!!

 I wonder what Porcupine rim do to those????

 What happens when the wheel gets bent from a hard case? Looks like it would be difficult to true those 3 spokes.

 I'd want a 6 spoke version rather than just 3. Egyptian charioteers had that figured out thousands of years ago.

 you need the extra 3 Egyptian spokes to cope with the additional flex from impacting the rotating knife blades against the gladiators!

 Amazing shots and interesting music, but I think those ugly wheels are bad. Actually classic spoked wheel is perfecly balanced machinery of stiffness and relieving stresses.

 24mm inner width? To narrow for an enduro bike in 2017(201Cool

 24mm rim width and no 29" ain't so hip to the trends. Who is the person actually buying these? And let's face it: if you ever managed to break this wheel, you're going to eat serious ca-ca

 Spokes suck? Uhhhhh, these wheels have spokes, there's just less.

 Website says 1750 grams? So whats the benefit over alloy with spokes? Clearly carbon with spokes is alot lighter. I'll pass
