Bike ahead rims:
Acros Nineteen finally comes, I talked with Acros about them last year at Eurobike. Can be compared to DT 240 in function and Tune King/Kong in weight:

Follow R2bike on Facebook for more lightweight pictures.
Some parts I remember more than other. Been checking the market for good hubs like Hope Pro 2 but a bit lighter. On R2-bike sorting A-Z it has always shown Acros hubs (before Absolute Black) nut they seemed boring. Last thursday on Eurobike I had to check Acros hydraulic gears when I saw they had a stand. Didn’t look anything more in their stand.
Back on friday I got some photos to and talked with a nice guy. Remembered that I’ve seen hubs on R2 and asked about it. He showed me a hub that really impressed. Lower weight than Tune King/Kong (15g/5g) and at a little better price. A star ratchet that could be better than DT’s 240 hubs with straight pull spokes like Sram.
Acros Nineteen XC is the name:
A 19mm carbon axle, threaded endcaps that are easy to change and I think they look really good. Also got a ED and FR version a bit heavier with less straight pull spokes.
Not on their website yet as they will be released in the beginning of 2015 after some more testing.
