IMO the new Bont wheels went with too small of a hub OD, resulting in too thick of a urethane layer for an optimally lightweight wheel.
I love the ground breaking idea of a direct fit micro bearing hub, but then why choose a Hub OD that pretty much neutralizes the weight benefit that the micro bearings provide? That decision makes no sense to me,
