    Hi.
    I took the stickers off my wheels and now I've forgotten what they are? I think they're Elites...but not sure. Pretty sure they're the higher spec of the two.
    Cheers, Paul :)

    Look under products

    Looks to me like the Elite is the higher of the 2.

    Elite's are the higher spec. If the spokes are round they are Equipe. The Elite's have flat aero spokes.

    The Elites are also slightly lighter in weight than the Equipes.

    The Ksyrium hierarchy, from top to bottom: ES->SL->Elites->Equipes

    I bought a set of Equipes last year, and they are definately bladed spokes, one model down from Elites, one up from Aksiums. 2c.
