Sold

I have a set of these wheels in great condition with an 11spd Shimano free hub body on it and the Sram that could be swapped out. They came out in 2008...

"Sitting at the extreme lightweight end of the spectrum lies the new Alpiniste SL Carbon, with new SL hubs laced with DT Aerolite spokes to low-profile 24mm-deep carbon tubular rims for an impressive 1060g figure."

There aren't any tires mounted but there is some glue that will need to be cleaned off. I can send or post photos if there is interest. I know they are old so maybe they aren't worth anything - Sold

These are dt 240s internals and its rumoured that they are hyperon rims. Not sure about that but i have had both sets and they are very similar for sure.. even the spoke count and hub design.

I just recently sold my alpiniste set. Very nice wheels!

Thanks, good to know! They came from a friend 3 years ago and I rode them briefly but the tires looked older and I don't have experience with tubulars so I didn't want to get stuck out and about on them. I think they were very lightly used.

I have a set of these in 10spd and think they're worth double what you're asking. Still some of the lightest wheels ever made! (try weight weenie forums).

I just bought a pair of wheels with Reynolds Attack rims mounted to these hubs - should be here in a few days... Wish I'd found yours first, though really, either should be pretty awesome

IMHO, worth it just for the hubs.

GLWS!

Are the decals easily removed?

Thanks for all the comments and info. Decals look tough to remove. I replaced the original 10spd freehub body with 11spd which was super simple. I still have the 10spd and I will pack it with the wheels. No skewers

I've received a number of PMs so I will post actual photos soon.

I don't have a box yet but I will ship bike flights and would assume the cost will be around $30 or less.

Here are some photos. It looks like there's a little corrosion on the flange and spokes but some of that is dirt and should clean up. I found some torn decals (which may pull off) but the carbon looks clean all around.

Is that a second 11spd freehub? I'd buy that separately if you want to pull a little extra value out...
