My girlfriend has a new Orbea with 10 speed Dura-Ace being built up. Altec + with carbon. She is 55kg. She wishes to purchase wheelset for same. Looking at New Dura-ace, Bontrager x-lite, Ksyriumsl2, or velomax orion 11. She wishes to use them to train and race on. Has anyone got suggestions for which is the best of these????

ya if you can live with yourself for putting campy wheels on an otherwise shimano bike, consider a eurus wheelset

Or go with the 32 spoke version at the same price and add 28 grams front, 58 grams rear.

I don't think that I would go for DA, they are heavy for a light person. The Orions are a wheelset that were designed for women and are very light and built very well. I also like the DA hubs and the Open pro rims with revolution spokes in 28 hole but would go with 3 cross driveside and radial non-drive and radial front. Also DT makes a light rim 415 grams that I am looking into. DT makes a wheelset and sells as a rim only.Hope this helps.
