Looking for a set of wheels and have been guided to these .
What do you think ?

    I think it's definitely a set of wheels, so if they meet your budget and requirements, then go for it.

    Well they were about £400 a pair complete with tyres back in 2015 if that helps.

    Only you can say if they are what you're after.

    Light, stiff, so-so bearings and seals, possibility of a plastic bushing in the freehub causing the Mavic death squeal, replacement rims and spokes possibly tricky to source / relatively expensive, alloy nipples can corrode / disintegrate if they see a lot of wet riding / road salt.

    Alternatively you could run them for years without a problem...
