SOC 14: Xentis Goes Stealth in the US for XBL 4.2 and Squad 4.2 Disc
Decals on rims are always a love ’em or hate ’em affair. It’s usually only when those decals or graphics are on $2,000+ wheels that it really becomes an issue. If you’re a fan of the blacked out look or just don’t want to be a rolling billboard for the brand of your next set of wheels, check out Xentis’ new finish. The black stealth finish will not only be offered on the 4.2 XBL and Squad 4.2 disc wheelsets, but it will be the standard color in North America. If you’re a fan of the current white graphics don’t worry – they’ll still be available as an option. Stage Race Distribution had the latest samples on hand which are currently limited to their 42mm wheels, but will be available across the line soon.
Close ups after the break…
It may be quite difficult to photograph, but the graphics are there. Both sets of wheels look great in person as the stealth look only seems to highlight the weave of the carbon. XBL 4.2s weigh in at 1435g per pair and retail for $1999, while the Squad 4.2 discs are 1475g and retail for $2599.
