The decals are lacquered over, really nice wheels though. 24mm wide and with 25mm tyres they soak up everything.
Been out today and cross wind wasn't too much of an issue.
The Caad 10 rides fantastic. I had a 58 which was a bit big at 6ft (I wanted a taller head tube so went a size up with shorter stem)
The 56 Sram force build I'm riding at the moment is great. I put it on the scales at work and weighs less than the supersix evo Ultegra (2014 and 2015) and it also weighs less than the supersix evo rival.
The handling on the Caad 10 is fantastic.
