Hi

I ride to hill every weeks, the slope is 10% even 20%-25%, I used CAAD9-5 with RS-20 shimano wheelset.Wolud you give me some suggestion for climb wheelset ?

1) dura-ace 7850 clincher
2) Fulcrum Racing 3 clincher 2010
3) Mavic Ksyrium Elite Wheels - Black 2011
4) HED Ardennes Clincher Wheelset-2010

Moreover, I don't know how to identiy wheelset for climb and cruise?

Thank you!

If you are expecting your wheelset to make a noticeable difference you will be disappointed. The biggest help will be low gearing. If you don't have a 34/28 now, that would be a start.

now my gear ratio is 34/27, so i would like to change the wheelset, crankset(52/39/30) or used mtb cassette with long derailleurs.

thank you

get the lightest wheels you can afford.... Of the wheels you listed, i'd choose the dura ace 7850 wheels. they're great!
