Have the chance to buy new wheels for the new bike.

Choices narrowed to zipp 303 firecest tubular £1400 plus tubbies or Mavic cosmic carbone Ultimate tubular £1750 includes tubbies.

Am coming off cosmic carbone slr which have been bombproof but a little heavy and lacking acceleration.

Bikin question is a Scott foil Hmx team edition with 11 speed ultegra di2.

Wanting good all round performance and wheels with a light and lively feeling.

Currently leaving to the ultimates.

    CCU. Shouldn't even be a question.

  • Where can you get the CCU for £1750?
    I'm sorry you don't believe in miracles
  • Chain reaction £1999 then I have a friend with a discount.
  • For that sort of money you could consider Bora 2's or Enve.

    I'm a big fan of Ultimates, I ride them all year round, for the last 3 years.

    A far better wheel than the 303, IMO.
