What's wrong with the Zipps?

Looks wise I like the spoke pattern of the Corima wheels but prefer the Mavic rims but functionally I think the Enve wheels are probably best (I just don't like Enve logos personally)

I love Zipp 404 and the sound they make. But you didnt write what are you planning to use R5 for.

If its for racing, then Zipp or Enve, but enve have strange logo and they just dont do it for me, besides there is less then a little reason to change 404 for Enve. If you are having R5 just for the pleasure, then Corima or Mavic - Corima looks exotic and I like the spoke pattern, but Mavic and Cervelo just belong together because of the Garmin squad!

OP already said it in the title, he needed the bike to look good. Surely that consideration trumps the marginal gains to be had from getting the most aero wheels, and I don't say that in jest (if it's expensive, it must look good doesn't it?)

My vote goes to shallower rims for the R5, maybe the 303 or 202 as the previous reply suggested.

CCUs are much cooler than the others. And functionally they are a a bit more balanced for road riding, sprinting and climbing than the others if you can live with the cost / compromise of not being able to replace the spokes. They also feel great to ride and around $1000 second hand.

Zipp / Enve / Corima - honestly I wouldn't bother - better to buy a set of Farsports rims and build them yourself with some nice boutique hubs (since they will last for ever) or colourful cheap ones. Then spend the other $1500-2000 on a good holiday, training program or some home improvements if you have a non-cycling other half.

Zipp 202 or Lightweight Ventoux would be my picks with Fulcrum Racing Light rounding the podium. ;)

Thx for all the votes! Considering Corima wheels, really like those spoke pattern, will always be outstanding. What makes me hesitate is the poor braking performance, is it really that bad? Any change of the latest version? And I was also wondering the choice between Aero+ and Viva, I do 70/30 Descend/Climbing.

I never heard about the bad braking on Corima. Is this a common perception?

i'd definitely go for a custom-built set of enve rims with chris king hubs. as for the rims, i'd choose the low 25mm version... timeless look and lowest weight... or the SES 3.4 wheelset, nice, that one!

i wouldn't want to see carbon fibre weave on that frame... UD is the way to go! :smartass:

I have Gipfelsturm now and they are about to go for sale... I'm leaning towards Corima myself.
