Hi,
I am looking to buy a set of carbon wheels with "intermediate profile". Something not too difficult to push on a 1k climb, but still giving descent aero on the flat. Also loking to try tubeless so tubeless compatible i sa plus.
I was looking at the Mavic Cosmic Pro. Any feedback on those? Recommending anything from other brands that would be similar?
Thanks!

    Have a look at http://www.zedbikewheels.com

    I’ve have a couple of mate that purchased at set of the £1100:00
    Elite ? one has the 38mm the other has the 50mmm and both rate them.

    Could be worth a look.

    Disc or rim brakes? Loads of options around the £800-£1000 mark but best to know which you are after.

    Mavic Cosmic Pro Carbon UST. 40mm and full carbon unlike Exalith and the brakes work in the wet. If you're looking at discs, you wouldn't want Exalith wheels anyway. I may be biased as I got my set for a 1/4 of the retail price, but they have been the best carbon wheels I've owned for handling and braking. Using them as tubeless I've had no problems and the weight is good too.
