looking for some lighter wheel for a summer bike that's slowly being bought/built

so what do we think of krysium elites

they were £325 yesterday, don't seem like such good value now t £360!

also quite keen on the aerp hope hoops for £350 - but i'm not sure how welcome the loud freehub would be on club rides...

any thoughts? obvious choices i've missed?

I can wholeheartedly recommend the Pro-lite Braccianos. For the money they're probably the best wheels i've tried for that kind of money. They're light, stiff and comfortable.

they retail for £350 but you can have them for a lot less on Wiggle at the mo, CRC are sold out.

My ksyrium Elites have done about 15,000 miles and have never needed to be trued or tinkered with.I changed the bearings in both hubs at the end of last summer for £20 and thats it.  4

I have the braccianos - great value, very light for the money and seem to be holding up well to the trial of winter roads.
