Currently have Fulcrum 3's. Thinking about upgrading to Fulcrum Zero's or Mavic Ksyrium SL wheels (or keeping what I've got)
So, which of the two is better?

I don't know about the Fulcrums but the Ksyriums are terrible wheels. They're not light and they are really not aero. And they use proprietary spokes.

If someone gave me some, I'd give them back.

I'd recommend a nice set of handbuilt wheels using Kinlin XR270 or 300 rims and quality hubs (White Ind. hubs are good and not too expensive).

If you want factory over handbuilt wheels, check out Easton, they make decent wheels, but not cheap!

yea, I'd go with handbuilt kinlins anyday ... I have the xr270s with sapim cxrays, white industry, etc. They don't have the fancy graphics but the ride difference is night and day.
