Starting my planning now for my offseason here in Australia which will be in about 2 months. I review my seasons thoroughly and one category I analyse is getting better equipment.
There will be a few upgrades and changes to bike during offseason and one aspect will be a wheel upgrade. My bike is a 2013 Giant Trinity Advanced SL0 and current rims (that came with the bike) are Zipp Firecrest 404 carbon clinchers. These rims will stay in my collection and used in a multiple of ways including for races that officials deem rims to be under 60mm deep, or used as my outdoor training rims, or used on my road bike.
So I’m putting out to the forum, I need some persuasion because I like both options and would be happy with either…I’m just struggling to decide on my own. Also like to add that I’ll also be getting a disc wheel too for the rear, giving me further options.
Option A - Zipp Firecrest 858 NSW + Super 9 Disc
Option B - Enve SES 7.8 + SES Disc
Price for the Enve’s I think is a little cheaper but price won’t factor into it.
Would love to hear from people with any first hand experience, or knowledge or data sheets or whatever! Cheers
