It looks like a wall. Oh, and it's 42mm deep. Deep V's are a comparatively diminutive 30mm. Lastly, they're substantially lighter than their Velocity counterpart.
    Wow, just wow.....and all for only just $125 a rim......

    Why not just buy right off the hplusson site and save about 35 bucks per rim? Theyre $105 shipped there.
    Bike biz is $125 plus shipping.
    Bikebiz gets a huge thumb down.

    How much is "this much?" Not enough to take a minute out of your life to post a thread about them? They're good wheels, the owner of the company has been listening to a lot of the comments people on many, many forums have made about his product/company and doing his best to make them happy. Not only that, it's a solid product, and it fills a niche that has all but been ignored, namely, a reasonably priced, reasonably light, extra-deep-section rim suitable for racing/training. Deep-Vs and their ilk are constructed for strength and are not suitable for this application.

    Not even CLOSE to the depth of these rims, and HPLUSSON does make a version with a braking surface.

    True, but the same can be said for just about any bike part that looks half-way decent and/or costs a pretty penny.

    How does that effect me being the new kid on the block throwing down the hottest S#@& all year? These aren't being marketed to the velodrome, but rather to the college campus.....

    Marketing? What marketing? I've seen the owner speaking to the people on weight weenies and tarck bike. If people are interested, they're interested. Who are we to decide who the "should" be buying them?

    Hplusson has done absolutely zero marketing that Ive seen. Its all been pretty much word of mouth.
    Theyre website has zero pictures and says nothing of intent of use either

    For what it's worth, these rims got a pretty solid review on the Weight Weenies forum. A friend of mine is pretty heavy, so he's thinking of getting a 36H hplusson for his rear rim. Overkill? Personally, I like them.

    Could they make the company name more difficult to pronounce? I mean at least give it a model name we can all say without sounding like complete idiots.

    what racing

    show me a picture of someone training or racing on these, then I'll accept that statement. all ive seen is freestyling. if someone wanted to race on a deep section 42mm rim theyd get a good and expensive racing wheel like a set of mid-life-crisis zipp's or something. With the price you spend on these rims and pay to build them up you could just as easily get something pre built cheaper and probably better for the ''racing application''. theyre hipster rims. they have no brake surface. they are the new deep v.

    deepV's are more than suitable for training and racing. in fact I know someone that does just that. trains and races.

    from the site.
    ''Formation Face is 85 USD and SL42 is 80 USD.

    1 rim: 30 USD (5 working days).
    2 rims: 50 USD (5 working days).''
