The Nisi Sludi rim, Mod. 290 and Mod. 320 (rim weight) were the top, most desirable rim in the mid 1970s. Came hard anodized dark grey/brown and also silver (the silver isn't anodized). The thick aluminum "NISI" badge looks very luxe and was totally unique to Nisi. First ones I saw in 1976 were on a Confente.
