These look reasonably legit. Schiers brings a lot of experience to the table (wonder why he left Enve). Like most engineering developments in MTB, I have to wonder how much of a real-world effect the two different wheels make, but the concept makes sense, except for one thing:  “CB tells us this is because front wheels often support wider tires and benefit from a rounder tire profile for cornering while a narrower rear rim "sharpens tire edge profile for grip," while reducing rolling resistance.”  I know wider front tires are typical, but isn’t this backwards? Doesn’t a wider rim square a tire more, and a narrower rim make it more round? What am I missing? Cam, have you been on We Are One wheels? Curious how you’d compare.
