The CC40 are really tough. I would suggest you give them a try. Our product guys spent a lot of time to build them as tough and as light as possible, kind of mimicking the original Ksyrium level of durability.
The CC40 are slightly more aerodynamic than the SLs. It's small, like 2-5 watts. Better aerodynamics with the tires that come with them, they're on the narrow side of 23mm which helps. However they ride great if you put our 25mm tires on.

Anyone have these and put them on a scale to get real weights?

Competitive Cyclist usually weighs things themselves (not manufacturer's claimed weight). Here's what they have:

Front Weight:670 g
Rear Weight:875 g
Complete Set Weight:[without tires] 1545 g, [with tires] 2085 g

$2,750.00

Honestly, at that weight (and cost), I'd look elsewhere. These wheels offer none of the "benefits" of carbon clinchers, and many of the drawbacks. No matter what, the brake surface is still carbon, which isn't as effective as aluminum, and you have an internal aluminum mounting bed, which adds unnecessary weight. Additionally, the narrow rim width is less stable compared to Zipp, Enve, Bontrager, etc.

They weigh more, cost more and have similar braking? I'll pass, thank you very much.

Is it safe to use Corima brakes pads on C40?

No. I've been in touch with Mavic and they only reccomend using their Yellow Carbon pads. Using any other pad will void the warranty.

I wanted to use those pads because they're so light.

Got my new CC40s on Friday, they look and feel great. First ride today (jut a quick spin) and they felt great. Could have gone with a lot of alternatives, but as an all-round, all-year wheel, they seem a great solution.
