Somebody is selling this wheelset locally:

The hubs don't look like HED, and HED has smaller holes in general I think. And too many spokes to be Mavic Cosmic Carbone. Flo? Aeolus? Who else makes this type of wheels?

I cannot read what it says on the hubs but generally most companies will have some big logos. I would post more photos or ask the seller for more pictures.

Those are NOT carbon wheels. That is an aluminum rim with a carbon fairing.

Yes I know. These were known as soft structure carbon wheels. The carbon is a flexible fairing. BUT it's not just for aerodynamics as most people assume. It strengthens the aluminum hoop by 300% according to Hed.
I got ahold of two sets of Hed wheels recently and I'm kind of on a Hed wheels kick.
