Wowwww.... All 3 of them are absolutely gorgeous, and so are the hypergrams with the machined lip. Have you heard anything about sizes and PCD? Please tell me there will be 17x9 or 17x10 that will fit the NC :mrgreen:

Glad you like those. We talked about doing the machined lip on 17x10 hypergram but I don't see doing any more 17x10 in other models anytime soon, that's about the cost of tooling and the fact that 17x10 is a really tiny little little niche of customers. My guess right now is polished lip for hypergram makes a 'limited edition' appearance on two of the most popular sizes, like 15x7.5 and 17x8.

I like those gray HEXAFORM - let's hope the 17x8 comes in the 4x100 +45 pattern for the ND and is under 17 pounds... :!:

Not much chance of that HEXAFORM coming in under 17 pounds for 17x8, we will be lucky if that one can get under 18 pounds from looking at it. Though I like stronger/thicker spoke designs like this new Hexaform, generally fewer and thicker spoke designs are heavier. Lowest weight designs use higher spoke counts and the spokes are thinner (load spread is much better and therefore less material is needed for sufficient test strength). Thus, from just looking at the prototypes the nine thin spokes of Countergram likely will end up lighter than 6 thick spoke design HEXAFORM. And yet I don't expect Countergram to break any records on lightest 17x8 because they built a lot of caliper clearance into the design, it might clear Brembo (we will check). This may not be obvious from pics posted but spoke connection point to lip is extended out above the polished lip, there's more meat there than you might guess from the pictures.

New Countergram and Hexaform Finally HERE TODAY!

Really impressed, finish and weights are even better than expected. Here is example 15x8 Bronze Hexaform, official weight from Konig of this 15x8 version is 12.9 pounds. Actual weight of first sample on our scales (checked on three of our Fedex scales) is 12.5 pounds.
