Anyone know if they will be around the same price as the other BST's that are currently available?

Not a fan of the kinked spoke. But I'm sure they had to make it different in some way then the SL's wheel.

I have an order in for these. Can't recall exact price i was quoted, but they are in the ballpark of other BST's. I too am not sure about the kinked spokes. I also like the silver hub of the SL wheels vs all black, but I'll make the call when I see them. I'm happy with the look of the Anniversario wheels so may just keep those.

$10K for the SL wheels is absurd. My $$ is going towards the Akra race exhaust!

I purchased a set of the 1299SL carbon wheels last month,and boy are they light! They need a different set of spacers to the standard 1299, but other than that its a straight swap.

There was a Carbon Fiber wheel failure this weekend at Chuckwalla.
Hope the guy is OK! Totally sucks for his bike.

Man I don't know.... My honest guess is that he went down and the bike hit something and the rim broke. I have 3 sets of BST rims 1 on my track bike 2011 ZX10R Modded to the hilt, one on my H2 that puts down 271HP at the tire and the last set on my ZX14. I've had the BST on the 14 for over 30,000 miles including top speed run at Loring 203.46 MPH and many pot holes and dirt roads with cross country trips and never an issue..... Something was going on with this one for sure.

Itís very unlikely every spoke separated like that, my guess is the bike went down and they cut the hub out after the fact.BST does tell customers to cut out the hubs of their damaged wheels because they can be reused when ordering new wheels to reduce the costs.
