Per a new E-mail from Fikse:
"The finish we are currently using on the wheel is called "Race Satin Clear Anodize", which is a low gloss, extremely durable satin silver finish. A great look on any paint color, really. We are running trials on additional finishes, but those have yet to be finalized."

Sounds less bright than what the Chroma pictures suggest. Race Satin is the color of the hub of this picture:

The rim in that picture is polished and uncoated

Yes, pricy! But it is the only monobloc wheel I can think of that has a dish look to it, so it's a rare bird
