Are there Deep V knock offs?

I was just wondering since most parts have a off brand knock off if there are any for deep v's. i know they wont be the same quality but does a company make colored rims like those?

I dont really know why, im not in the buying mood, ive just been thinking about it though.

yeah, they're cheap, and with formula hubs, i don't think you can **** up with them. still....they're cheap and i know mavic cxp22 is a tough enough rim, too.

i had rigida dp-18s for a few years and they were
a tad heavier than deep-v rims, but just as tough.
i'm guessing these are the same as from weinmann,
but i'm not sure.

Deep V's are played out anyway.

But if I'd want a "Deep V knock off"(read: rim with deep aero profile) I'd get some CXP22's

are CXP22s any cheaper than deep v's? And is it appropriate to call a superior product (according to many), a "knock-off?"

edit: eh nevermind, I was thinking of CXP33's

Anyone heard anything about these? I'm on a tight budget for my current build, and I like how they have powdercoated over the MSW to make the rims look more uniform (though I guess it would wear off after awhile). They're running formula hubs on them, so are they similar to that other budget Alex wheelset that always gets brought up here?
