Correct. However, let's be truthful here. I believe the Delphis are made overseas (Thailand?) which given logistics etc must be a cost issue. Also, if adjustability was a factor there are many other brands that are also better quality.
Who knows what the real reason is? Why did FPV change wheel sources from SPeedline/ROH to Thailand made Enkei? I'm not sitting in the seat of the procurement guy but I'm guessing unit cost is always high on the list. Which makes you wonder, how much did the delay in delivering wheels for the first FPV's cost?
For the record, the Enkeis on my Pursuit do appear to be good quality. T6 alloy too!
