    Strengths:    Fast, light, tough, really feel the wheel hold speed above 24-25 mph. , pretty easy to look at also

    Weaknesses:    braking is significantly reduced in wet weather regardless of the pads used.

    Bottom Line:   
    Wanted these for a special bike I had custom built. Well, the bike was a piece of crap but the wheels were out of this world and still are after over 3000 miles of all types of riding. Got a new frame and could not be happier with the whole set up.

    Strengths:    Lightweight, strong and stiff, aerodynamic, real carbon, super smooth and high quality hubs. Looks and reliability.

    Weaknesses:    The aluminium braking rim is not very smoothly joined, the carbon can look a bit faded [polish or use a coat of clearcoat], Price - very expensive if brand new. Thats why they have lower value rating. Tubular tires - they are still abit more hassle than clinchers.

    Bottom Line:   
    I got these from a friend for half price, and used less than 500km. I have ridden 300 km on them so far, and they are great. They are very smooth, and you can feel the quality of the hubsets. Easy to grase and maintain. Super strong, stiff and well built. Real carbon rim with aluminium braking surface, good in wet weather riding. Aerodynamic, give you a rolling effect when riding fast and in a paceline. You can feel its 'assistance' especially when you are tired and just rolling. The aero dynamics kick in from 36kmh, and it helps maintain a high constant speed. Acceleration is not as nimble or fast as really lighweight wheels. However, there wheels, with a good pair of tubulars and Campy skewers weight as much as a pair of new Eurus wheels with clincher tires and campy skewers. Lightweight enough for climbing, strong and stiff, bomb proof, real carbon, aerodynamic and all you want in a pair of wheels. Suitable for all types of riding, and best of all, looks elegant and classy, and is one of Campy's finest. If you find these used, grabed them at a lower price.

    Strengths:    Fast, light, strong, and stiff. By far the best wheels I know of and everyone else agrees.

    Weaknesses:    None that I have found except parts are hard to find when you break them.

    Bottom Line:   
    Best wheels ever until the front broke in the middle of a race in Germany. But I have never felt faster sprinting on any other wheel.

    Strengths:    Very light weight.
    Super smooth hubs.
    Great aerodynamics.


    Weaknesses:    Cost.

    Bottom Line:   
    I love these wheels! They are light enough to use in the mountains without any worries and the ultimate to have on the flats. The quality is typical Campagnolo. I am still in awe that after nearly 3000 miles they are still straight as an arrow without truing. Nothing to complain about...yet.
