These French aero wheels are available in several spoke combinations- ours is the 24/12 that is well suited to time trialling, and they slip through the air without the high cost associated with using a disc wheel and composite monocoque front wheel.

The deep section carbon rims are surprisingly lightweight at just 366g each and very well made. The cartridge bearing hubs are purpose made by Corima and cassettes are quickly interchangeable for Shimano or Campagnolo users. The nipples get the locking agent treatment that remains fairly fluid, so adjustments to the spokes can be made without the need to reapply the stuff afterwards. The brakes can grab on carbon rims that are out of true, so it was reassuring that the Corima's were perfectly true and stayed that way. The price includes skewers and quality padded wheel bags.
