Campagnolo has announced the arrival of an all-new Bora Ultra 35 carbon tubular wheelset that includes both diamond-ground braking surfaces and “Ceramic Ultimate Level Technology” or “C.U.L.T.”

The wheels feature all sorts of high-tech wizardy, starting with those diamond-cut braking surfaces.

As reported by Bike Radar,

“The company claims that this process eliminates impurities that can result from sanding the surface to remove resin.”

Well, at least until you use the brakes for the first time in the wet, in which case you’ll be loading impurities onto the rims faster than you can say “road grit.”

Also of interest is Campagnolo’s use of a dab of extra carbon fiber opposite the valve stem to balance the wheels. Great for riders who regularly go so fast that they can feel their wheels going out of balance, and news to the rest of us who have been riding unbalanced wheels for more than 100 years.

Bike Radar’s writeup (which as of today lacks pricing info … hint: they’ll be expensive) is here.

Pinarello’s 2014 bikes are embargoed for a bit, but at least one has leaked out and is making the rounds. Spotted here on Competitive Cyclist’s Facebook page is the upcoming Dogma Disc road bike. 
It’s built with the new SRAM Red 22 Hydro disc brakes, 
with what looks like Vision Trimax Carbon TC50 wheels…except for disc brakes.
