The Weight Weenies at starbike have put together a list of wheels, weights, spoke count and prices to compare wheelsets. The list has been growing and I'm sure there are a few missing. If you know of any please add them to the list, we have been hoping to update the list so it is complete with spokes and prices but we have only added those points to the list.

According to the mavic web page:

Produced in limited quantity the Ksyrium Tour de France benefits from the improved technical qualities of the new Ksyrium SL and boasts several additional features: rapid closure titanium skewers, lighter rear axle, Tour de France decals, and laser etched serial numbers. In addition, they are supplied in wheelbags printed with the Tour's logo.

The SCC SL wheel is lighter than other Ksyriums due to zircal spokes.

If Mavic didn't pay the TDF riders to use them in the hills I seriously wonder if they would be as popular as they are at our level.

I got the FSA wheels you metnioned above.

They were FSA RD400 they were about 1450 - 1480.... They came with quick releases.

These wheels only cost $400 !


They're hand built and each wheel set has a serial number on it.


And they are lighter than Ksyriums cost 2 - 3 times as much

Roval Rapide SL45 (1595)
Roval Rapide SL25(1495)

Not super light, but I really like both of these wheelsets. I just the SL25 when there's more climbing.

www.spadabike.com - use the "contatti" button top right of their home page and type in your query in english about local supply / distributor.

Spada Oxygeno = 1180gm (basically a Stans Alpha 340 with customer spoking 20/24 on handbuilt (and very nice) Spada hubs. Match these babies with the IRC Formula Pro Light tubeless tyres for a complete wheelset including tyres of around 1670gm all up. That's a number that is tough to beat even with a carbon tubular setup.
