    Double butted spokes on the rs20. Hence it is slightly (negligibly) lighter.
    I think the 'polished hub shell' also results in a smoother riding hub.....
    That's non-scientific but I rode on the rs20 for 6 months until I sold the bike. Very smooth rolling. I tested the rs10 for about 6 hrs and the ride seemed very agricultural to me. Rolled OK...but not as silky smooth as rs20 or ultegra 6600 in my experience.

    Ultegra > RS20. I have thought about changing the RS20's on my Mrs Felt for the Ultegras, as you cna get some very good deals on them.

    The RS20's do roll very well tohugh, just a tad heavy @1850g Ultegra = 1665g

    P.S, these look interesting for little more than the RS20's

    I've got Ultegra 6700 and RS20 and RS10. I would say the RS20 is the best value, lighter than the RS10 and half the price of 6700. Also I really can't tell the difference when out on the road.

    does the wheel set different 200g is very significant for the speed?

    how about the weight of RS10?
    RS20 I just know around 1850gram

    I read somewhere that the RS20's are at 105 level

    does the 24mm of RS20 rim height is well to perform the aero function compare with original wheel set?
    thank you
