Good price.

Can you explain to me how these are R43s though? I understand they look similar with the single spoke design, but R43 spokes look different and the R43 has 13 spokes instead of the falllines 11.
The best way to describe why this is an "R43" is the 11-spoke R43 was originally designed by Fall-Line and manufactured by HRE. HRE then released their 13-spoke R43 version. I recently had my "Fall-Line" R43's refinished and all of the HRE paperwork referred to them as R43's. So basically there are two versions of the R43 - 11 and 13 spoke versions. If you want to order an 11-spoke version then request the "Fall-Line" R43
