The new Marchesini's are coming

Got a chance to handle the new 10 spoke and the all new 7 spoke as well before they head to Indy. Both are light, the 7 spoke is extremely light, and marchesini has upped the anti once more when it comes to lightweight rims.

They are continuing the 10 spoke wheels but have added a chromium finish, bling bling and as smooth as a mirror while still saving weight over the previous 10 spokes.

These are the same design that Ben Spies used on his winning Yamaha R1 superbike. Look for 10%+ weight savings on these, unfortunately for now they only come in Magnesium.

wow sharp lookin those 7 spokes are... its amazing they can make them any lighter, they are probably right at BST's weight than the 10 spokes were only 1 lbs heavier than the BST's

Thats a gooood looking rim and Im sure the weight savings will be great! Im really liking how Marchesini is pushing new designs and releasing them to average consumer while still being on top in the race industry. I love my Galespeeds but these might be hard to pass up. Any word on when they hit the open market?
