    Anyone got/tried the Roval wheels with the funny paint splat in the middle?

    Just interested as they do look very cool?

    I quite like the look too

    Would you go for the red splat or black splat?

    True, true. I'd love a Cento in the traditional Wilier colours though...

    Roval is a French builder who has been developing his own innovative wheels designs for years - a bit like the Rolf wheels licensed by Trek. The 'red splat' wheels are pretty heavy though, so not sure whether the extra weight is worth the benefit. The red bit does look cheap and plasticcy too - the carbon wheels are something like £1700 so not cheap. I'd rather have a pair of Boras or Fulcrum carbons at that price, plus a few hundred change.
