Can't recall for sure but I think i recall that they are 27mm. There are different gravel king submodels. I wouldn't expect them to influence shape that much. So likely it is my old eyes.What internal width rim on those GravelKings? I've got mine on 25mm internal and they are right around 42mm.
Bummer! IME, Vittoria doesn't miss the mark that often.
Everybody stubs their toe once in awhile!
Was just out in Utah for the 5 Canyons Challenge gran fondo and while there picked up a few new bike bits. The best of the lot is this pair of Giro Imperial road shoes that I found on mega clearance at Level Nine Sports. MSRP is $425, bought for $112.25. They're super comfortable, mega stiff, and feather light. Also: bright white!

Note that there are transparent bits so whatever socks you wear will create color highlights with the shoes. Given I've got tons of great Ridge Supply socks at my disposal it's not difficult to find something that works well.
Other things acquired were more mundane: cleats, chain lube, etc.
The event jersey from 5 Canyons is a corker, a proper Euro pro cut from DNA Cycling. I'll get a picture of that when I wear it with full kit. My try-on of it had me super happy, to say the least: nice fit, no weird creasing, bunching, or wrinkling. Euro pro cut isn't everyone's cuppa but I love it.
Still waiting for the Velocio Unity jersey to arrive, but I'm sure it'll fit wonderfully when it does. They do make lovely kit, and it seems that SRAM is letting them operate as their own entity which is definitely for the best.
