So what's the story with these guys? I can't find much info on here or on the web. Probably because they're so new. Anybody ever try a pair of Xero Element wheels? PricePoint seems to sell them pretty cheap. They look good, though they're not that light for 24 spoke wheels. Probably for XC only.

That's a 28 spoke wheel btw and appears to be intended for xc use; they have other wheels designed for other specific purposes. Never heard of them personally, but the website offers this explanation of their background:

XERO is a brand new company specialized in wheel system technology. Although XERO is a fresh brand in wheel industry, nevertheless its professional knowledge and techniques about wheel system is undeniable. All of XERO's resources are derived from FORMULA. Many people may not aware that FORMULA makes high-end hubs for many well-known companies worldwide. In fact, you could even be riding FORMULA hubs and don't know it. FORMULA's professional knowledge and techniques of manufacturing hubs have complement into XERO's wheel system.

Our research and development team is constantly testing new materials, manufacturing processes, and bike technology, allowing us to be the leading edge of hub technology.

I hope their wheel skills are better than their ability to get hype translated into English...
