Currently running a pair v similar to these Kinetic One wheels but a bit lower spec hubs/spokes and come about around 1650g before tyres/tubes. I’m really drawn to a pair of Campag Bullet 50 so a 17mm deeper rim depth and circa 150g more weight.
I’m in a pretty hilly part of the world but not long climbs plenty of short steep ones. Below is the time spent at various grades for a late-season club run (Strava). I want alloy brake track since I know my braking skill and brave is less and the SW of England can rain on pretty much any day of the year!
I’m not going to lie part of the reason is they look damn fine but I’m trying to justify the performance gain if there is even one? What say the more experienced and more knowledgable folk? I think it would be worth it since the majority of my climbs are shorter bursts.
