I don't recall specifically all the changes that were made in 2010. I'm pretty sure there was some weight reduction, but don't know if it was on the order of 200g ...though that's plausible, the pre-2010 wheels were somewhere around 1800g iirc. I'm almost positive that they changed some of the hub internals, because I think the redesign was partly in response to all the complaints about the dreaded "Ksyrium Shrieking Hub" issue.

The ones pictured in the OP do not look like my pre-2010 Ksyriums, so my guess would be that those are post-2010.
But that is just a guess.
