Not a true climber, for sure. But..

For the price I think there are better wheel choices out there that will give you the same aero performance with a lot less weight. Look at the Zipp 404's and Reynolds Stratus DV before you buy the Mavics.
Price is not that bad, and half of the pro peleton uses them on flatter races. This is when they have Ks available also. Petachhi and the sprinters use them alot. Then again, Bettini does too. It really throws alot of our assumptions about weight out the window.

Acceleration: Petacchi won most of his sprints in last years' tours on them.
