Hi I just bought a cannondale supersix that came with mavic es wheels,I have a set of 2005 zipp 303 wheels that have been hassle free so far. Just wanted your guys opinions on which one I should keep since I really don't need both. Thanks for any help

Both of these are clinchers?

I have both. If I were racing, I'd keep the 303s. For everything else, I like Ksyriums. Despite a few reported bad experiences, Ksyriums have always served me well, from the original to the ES.

Most importantly, do the red accents on the ES go with your bike? ;-)

Yes they are clinchers and the red does go with the bike which does make it look cool. Thanks for the reply

303's will be faster, no doubt. I'd keep the zipp's and i don't love zipps but i really don't like mavics. Box rim with huge bladed alum spokes that ride harsh. No contest.

yes, i owned a set of SL's with the black spokes. They served me great but i just found better options for the same or less money.

if it were me, i'd sell the ES if they are a new take-off. You'd get decent money off ebay for them - whereas you will get punished on the zipps as they are a bit old now.

Even if you ended up selling the zipps - you could always go custom with the proceeds which are better than the ES IMO...
