I've never used them but from everyone I've ever talked to who have they say that Carbons are absolutely awesome wheels. They are rock solid and aero but they have one drawback- they are heavy. Very heavy. In fact the rear wheel weighs more than a set of Reynolds Stratus DV wheels! The carbon fairing is not structural it is simply an aero shroud over an aluminum rim. I've even heard that it is not carbon at all but I don't know personally.

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.
