I'm after a set of clinchers for road races and mountainous sportifs this year. I'm down to these three. As I understand it;

1. Mavic Carbones - stiff, good bearings/hubs, good aero, bit heavy
2. HED Alps - softer, hubs more questionable, good aero, lighter
3. Ritchey WCS clinchers - more of an unknown quantity.

Whether you've ridden them or not - what's the word on the street for these three? They are all pretty much identical in price.

Mavic Carbone SL

I just got a set of Mavic Carbones (SL model). I haven't ridden them yet, feel heavy but sturdy and stiff as hell. I will give you my impressions later, as I plan to put a lot of miles on these.
