Simple question, on the back of my last post asking about wheel sets in the £400-500 mark

Should I go for Mavic Krysium elites

of Novatec Jet Fly's

novatecs are lighter and get good reviews, but not sure they are a good upgrade or not.

It's on a Look 675 Light Di2 and want a good upgrade on the Aksuims (which is basically anything)

Thanks in Advance

    TBH. Neither.
    On price and review terms the Zonda is a better choice: ... -wheelset/

    if you do not like the lacing then this is also a better choice IMO: ... -wheelset/

    Yeah, +1 for Zondas, although could be tempted to try Prolite Bortolas (tubeless ready and wide rims) if frame clearance allowed. That's said, I'm still running some Ksyrium Equipes on my winter trainer and they have been properly bombproof, although the rear rim is quite concave now and almost ready for binning.
    The Jetflys over the Mavics for me if it had to be between the two, bit more 'up to date'.
    Titus Silk Road Ti rigid 29er - Scott Solace 10 disc - Kinesis Crosslight Pro6 disc - Scott CR1 SL - Pinnacle Arkose X 650b - Pinnacle Arkose singlespeed - Specialized Singlecross...& an Ernie Ball Musicman Stingray 4 string...

    Not sure what you are basing that on. The Ksyriums have been updated recently and offer a U shaped rim that is 17mm internal width rim (the same as the Jetfly) so are pretty much bang on trend.

    French bike, French wheels.
