Anyone know how these differ from the standard Ksyrium SL?
Secondly, Ksyrium K10/SL or Fulcrum 1?
Use - bit of 4th Cat racing/Sportives/Sunday best.

Thanks.

    Both will be good. Ribble have the K10s at 599 at the moment.

    That said, the K10s are the crappest looking wheels in the world when you see them in the flesh... Horrid.

    Agreed. I got the R-Sys premiums after seeing K10s. £670 at Merlin Cycles.

    The R-Sys wheels are the best clinchers I've ever had a go on...

    That's a great price for the premiums!!

    Which is exactly the sort of thing I wanted to know! There off the list.

    Fulcrum 1 or Ksyrium SL it is then!

    Shallow? Moi? Oh yes!

    Aesthetics is one of the most important things IMO once you get to a certain price point, as everything is good!

    Can't believe the price of those R-Sys at Merlin, just been looking and got very itchy over the Add to Cart button!

    A few more questions for the stylists amongst us :

    1) is it okay to put Fulcrum 1 wheels on a bike that is Campag equipped, or will I get shouted at by the style police?

    2) do the 2009 Fulcrum 1 (all black) look better than the 2010 model (silver spokes). Fitting to a red/black BMC Pro Machine

    3) what colour tyres?

    1 - On the contrary. Fulcrum are made by Campagnolo.
    2 - All black
    3 - Black.
