    £500 min. Planet Xs are probably the cheapest bet.


    Although it depends if you want proper deep section aero wheels, or "deep section" wheels that aren't all that aero.

    How deep do you want them?

    You could probably get a set of Mavic Cosmic Elites for around the £250 mark, but they aren't all that deep.

    Those Rodi look weighty, but that's a bloody cheap price! :shock:

    Dalkiia SixZeros are £550 at Primera. Otherwise it's second hand I'm afraid, and even then you'll be looking at £300+ most likely.

    Yes.
    Parkers were selling these about a month ago for £10-20 less, but aren't listing anything by Rodi now.

    Can't say I've ever seen anyone using them, but they look similar to Cosmic Elites for about half price
    (although the Cosmics are bombproof and I've no idea what these things are like).

    he was asking the maximum suggested rider weight for the wheels not the actual weight of the wheels :wink:

    I use HED Jet 50's. Deep but no too much. £480 quid for pair (Clinchers) unless they've gone up.

    How about American Classic 420s ? They have a 34mm rim depth, weigh about 1450g and I've seen them for 300-350 euros. A bit over budget but they are aero and no where near as lardy as the others. Not the strongest, mind you.

    I have a set of Hed Jet 50's great wheel, but also a cheaper set of Halo Mercury wheels at 30mm rim, about £225 from tredz, again can't fault them, light but stiff.

    If you want comparable wheels but much cheaper look at Quest ones. I've used a pair for 2 years and no probs whatsoever and only about £60 a pair:

    Sorry for not replying sooner XTCRider- must have misread your question! Just happened across the thread again. Slightly belated! :oops:

    Like lots of brands now (for example Reynolds) We have no stated max rider weight for our wheels. Perhaps the most useful real world example I can give is that we've had a 6ft8 - 21 stone ex-rower using these wheels for the last year or so on one of our Fk-One Bikes and still going fine. Incidentally he was our tallest ever customer....... until last month! We're now trying to build a bike for a chap who is 6ft10 would you believe. Must be well over that 21 stone I'm guessing! Not your typical Roadie! I think I'd still feel OK speccing his bike with our wheels - but would probably seek a view from the factory on that one first! :? All the best. Andy

    If you're interested in something different, you could possibly pick up a pair of late 90's aero section wheels on ebay for that kind of money, possibly a touch more. I'm thinking Campagnolo Vento, Scirocco, Atlanta, or if you're luck Shamal, or possibly Mavic Cosmic. (Definitely know about the campags though, cos I own a pair!). They're all distinctly aero wheels (30-40mm section), with relatively low-count bladed spokes, sturdy rims and all would have decent servicable hubs. Very nice and very good looking! Only check that they take your cassette, because some will have been for 8-speed setups for example.

    Not fully deep sectioned, but still deeper than your average.

    Really good pair of wheels for £200 if you arn't too heavy.
    Note: the above post is an opinion and not fact. It might be a lie.

    Planet X Model B's are Not aero wheels - however, at 30 mm Rim and reasonably lightweight, with adequate hubs, they might take your fancy ? - and can be had for under £125.

    You may be able to find a pair of late model Shamals (the deep rim model) for about £250 on ebay. Very strong and very aero - in a test a few years ago, there were as good as the latest carbon hoops. As far as the 2kg Airlines, save your money and buy something better - they will feel sluggish and slow to reach a fast speed. Remember, aero wheels don't make much difference below 40kph either.
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..
  • i'm very interested in the airlines now i've seen the weight of rider they can deal with. what sort of aero advantage do these kind of wheels provide?
