Kysrium SL's ?

IF one were to upgrade ones' wheels from Kysirium SL's, what would be a consideration ?
Bearing in mind I'm a climber first an foremost. I mean would there be any benefit from putting something more aero on the back? Or should I just be going lighter ?
I await your collective esteemed wisdom.

    Mavic? Cosmic Carbone Ultimates perhaps. Otherwise if you are a climber then Lightweight Ventoux perhaps?

    For all out climbing, I reckon R-Sys are hard to beat, provided you are happy with the hollow carbon spokes. I've also found the Fulcrum Zero's to be a great all round wheelset. (Assuming you are sticking with clinchers).

    @ northpole
    Is there a problem with they hollow spokes? I was kinda leaning towards the R-Sys

    I have a set of the premiums and have found them to be good with no problems at all to report. There have been one or two reports on the web that there may still be a problem with the construction of them. One I read was someone testing them and mid corner the front wheel collapsed on him putting him out of the race and in hospital with a suspected broken shoulder blade. This may have been a complete one off. I know two other chaps with the r-sys sl's and neither of them have reported any problems. All down to confidence really & I thought it better to mention it to you so you can do a web search and decide for yourself if it bothers you rather than find out after you have bought a set. Allegedly not the most aerodynamic wheels due to chubby spokes, but must say I haven't noticed this limitation!
