Marchisio Eptagon Wheelset with Campagnolo-compatible freehub. New, $1,000.00/set

Included: Wheel bags, rimstrips, owner's manual and spare spokes

These wheels are truly new, they have never even had cogs put on them.

Marchisio was an Italian firm started by ex-pro racer Dante Marchisio in the 1980s. The company specialised in using CNC machining to create innovative and interesting high-performance bike parts

Here's the importer's description of the wheels:
The hubs start out as a solid piece of aluminum that is laboriously machined down to the beautiful, elegant works of art that you see in the pictures. There is no sacrifice of comfort and road feel since the Eptagon wheels use a normal box-section rim with the give and fexibility a good road wheel should have.

Note: the easily detachable freehub body is Campagnolo compatible.

Factory spec weight:
Front wheel: 765 grams
Rear wheels: 970grams

We've posted the Eptagon Wheelset owner's manual.
