Yup, I noticed the same thing, and I think it's a good thing. I've been wondering why we don't see single-wall carbon. Put all the material where it's needed - where rocks meet rim, and get some nice flex. It should bring prices down since the manufacturing process would be way simpler.  But at \[edit: $700/rim\], I _really_ don't get it. Not with "intended use" in the warranty language. At that price, you need to give me a free rim when i break it, no matter what. Sorry Mr. Zip Roadie, you're going to think everything I do on a bike is outside "normal use". Our XC riding has always included a lot of DH. Not taking that chance. With single wall, they should be able to semi-automate this and get the rim prices down to $200/rim. But I have to admit, I'm still intrigued. And ditch the stupid Tyre Wiz. I don't want to ever look at my damn phone while on the bike.
