Which one is better overall, which one would be a really good all rounder. Which hubs are better, and which gives more aero advantage?


  • but would the difference in weight be noticeable?
  • Depends where the weight is :twisted:

    I would personally go with the Mavics. Exalith braking surface and hubs that don't explode would do it for me.

    MTB - On-One Inbred

    I have no idea what's going on here.

    I've heard far more people complain about Zipp quality than I have Mavic. Of course, neither is immune...

    I had 404's last year, and this year have the Mavic's and to me, the Mavic's kick ass over the zipps.. such a nicer wheel to ride!.. and look so much nicer in the flesh!.,, for me no contest Mavic all day long :lol:
