    H Plus Son Archetype plus rain equals...

    ...silver brake tracks!

    I've put about 1000 dry miles on these wheels and so far, the black anodizing on the brack tracks have held up nicely. One hour in the rain today and now they're silver. It would have happened eventually, but the rims sure looked cool all black. Oh well, still a great riding wheelset and quickly becoming one of my favorites.

    I had a pair of their 40+mm ones. I found that although they are light for the size, the brake track wore down very quickly and eventually split. I won't touch them again. I'd rather the slightly heavier wheel where the brake track lasts a number of years.
