Lightweight wheels vs Aero wheels
Now this age old debate is unlikely to be ended by this thread, but I might come away enlightened.
So a few basics to begin with, I am 75 kg (usually a tad lighter) I have been looking at wheels from Soul and wheelsmith within their lightweight classes. I have sportive aspirations in the near future and racing in the slightly less near.
At 1300g for a wheelset at about £400 that represents a lot of weight saving for the money, but is it with forgetting about weight and going for a rim with more depth for the aero benefit? Baring in mind that sportives tend to be hilly, am I going to see greater benefit for a lighter quicker spinning up wheel. Is like to hear from both sides of the fence if possible
In case you want to have a look,
Also if anyone has recommendations for other lightweight wheels or handbuilt wheels i would like to hear them, handbuilt all the way for value
