I am looking into buying carbon wheelset for the next racing season, I have a 19lb bike BH Speedrom 7.0 I am looking to make it a bit lighter and aero for racing on flats and hills as I hope to do Triathlons also, Is it going to be worth my while upgrading? I have been looking at Planet x brand but dont know where to start

The ads will show if its shimano or campag freehub that comes with them.. Or i think you can choose
Deep section carbon rims aren't that light compared to good alloy rims. If you want something really light then you need to look at 20mm carbon rims. 50mm or 38mm rims are a compromise between weight and (marginal) aero benefits. But many many people that ride carbon rims only do it for the look.
More problems but still living....
