Yes, it's true.... Rolf is introducing a Santana-compatible 160mm rear-spaced tandem wheelset @ 1768g per set (w/o q.r or rimstrips) vs. Shimano Sweet 16's at 2055g per set (w/o q.r or rimstrips).
Note the 160mm "Perfect Vision" wheels have 20 spokes front & rear vs. the Santana-Shimano Sweet 16's with 16 front & rear.
Not cheap, but priced to be competitive with the Sweet 16's.
Note: This is not an endorsement, just information. We own a set of '07 Rolf Prima 20/24 tandem wheels and they seem to be pretty nice for non-technical, performance riding applications and special events... which I maintain is true of all 'racing wheels'.
