How do they perform in the wet?


I have never ridden in wet conditions, so I can't comment on their performance.

Typical carbon performance in the wet with black prince pads. However, I just did 2 back to back rain Crits with them and they were manageable.

Did Mavic ever release any aero data for this wheelset? Since they are not overly light (1545g) I would hope they are at least as aero as Zipp 303 FCs. My experience with aluminum Mavic clinchers is they are stiff and reliable so I expect these to be the same.

I am in the market for a set of light weight carbon clinchers with good aero and would like them to be as stiff and light as possible. I actually considered the Lightweight MEILENSTEIN clinchers since they are very light and supposed to be very stiff but they are only 20mm wide and kind of old tech so I am skeptical about their aero benefits, especially given the cost $$$$$$$. Thoughts?

The other wheels on my list are these new Mavic 40C, Reynolds 46 Aero clincher and maybe the '14 Zipp 303 FC.

From what I've read, the 40c are on the middle of the scale in terms aero. Mavic admitted that making them super aero wasn't a priority. Also keep in mind that rim tape isn't needed with these wheels, so you shed around 40g there compared to other wheels. Very small amount but still should be considered.
