I picked these based on price point, depth and weight. The price is good compared with other similar wheels and I wanted my first set of carbon wheels to be deep enough to make a noticable diffference in aero conditions. I read aero is more important than weight, even for climbing so theese seemed to be a good balance. For me, climbing improvement is negligable. They are close to 1600 grams so I think maybe for me, light weight would make more of a difference. I weigh 160ish and do around 240 watts for 20 minute climbs. On rollers and descents, there is a huge difference. I am setting PRs all over the place. The bladed spokes and deep wheels make my tarmac fly. The 28mm contis handle so well and the descents are so confidence inspiring that I have gotten used to barely touching the brakes and going into the corners. This is good because the brakes are not very good and quite loud. Overall a really good wheel that also handles potholes alot better than I thought a carbon wheel would. Tires go on and off no problem too. Despite the product description, the depth will absolutely yank the front wheel in the strong winds. I dont ride em in the really windy stuff weve had this spring. Other than that, a great first deep carbon wheel for my needs.
