The above are a possible purchase (2nd hand/pre-loved but with minimal use) and having read one or two reviews was concerned a bit about their supposedly poor'ish braking in wet weather? Any members with experience of this or have brake pad compounds improved things (the wheels are a model from a few years ago).

General opinions on their ride performance also welcomed.

I usually ride Dura Ace C24's at the mo and know the above are heavier by a few hundred grams but am interested in deeper section carbon hoops for the occasional blast on the flat.
Thanks..........

    You can blast on the flat with your C24... the advantage will be about 2-3% in power efficiency at 25-30 mph... looking at 10-15 Watts over a 300-400 Watt output

    Cheers Ugo........the C24's are superb and a 'do it all' type wheel which is good value imo. I've had 2 sets over the last few years or so and I can hold a decent avg pace with them on the flat too...... but just curious with deeper rims.
