Only a deal for the cycling enthusiast. Next cheapest is the 2009 model @ 320 which hasnt dropped in months.

There are better (lighter) wheels out there for climbing, but these are great mid range racing, or training wheelset. Very strong, ideal for the heavier rider and once spun up forum users have reported a 3mph improvement.

I've been after a pair of these for ages as Ive been riding a borrowed pair for the last 18months and IMO think they are fantastic and unbelievably strong.

Shimano 10 + 9 speed compatible

30mm rims look like this on a bike;

I should point out that they perform well in cross winds ( not too much pull to one side from side on winds) and that you have to run inner tubes with longer valves (48mm) to cope with the 30mm deep vsection rims. Obviously you wont get the full aero advantage in comparison to 40mm+ deep rims, but for me ( a 1 wheelset rider) they are ideal.

I suspect that Mavic might be phasing the Cosmic Elites out (unconfirmed).

Look like a great pair of wheels for a windy day, nothing worse than heading out with a disk or some deep rims and regretting it :)

Good price for these wheels so heat added, but I think you can still get better value with Easton EA 50 or Xero Marquilosso (look nice in red) they are also both lighter and still very stiff.

Thanks. I also looked at the Easton range, but some users reported various problems that I couldnt work out whether they were one offs/due to user abuse or designs flaws, so decided to stick with what I know. I know nothing about the Xero range, but thanks for the info - others might find it useful.

I was looking at the RS10 and RS20s (£100 + £125 respectively) but decided that if I was spending that much on training wheels then I may as well spend a bit more on one set of multipurpose wheels which economically made more sense. The RS80s seemed very nice, but I couldn't find that many reviews discussing the lateral flex when testers applied unnatural stress to the wheel.
