ChristianK how do the wheels ride and spin up? Harsh, flex? No racing here just some fast group rides. Keeping up with the attacks and the acceleration out of the corners is about the hardest parts of the rides. Weekend rides we hit some hills here but there all but 100 yards long. Do aero wheels even help when riding in a pack?
The only actual races I've completed with them were uphill TTs. The fastest I've ever gone was on these wheels, but I cannot attribute that to the wheels alone as I was out of shape the last few times for that event later in the season. I ran a 1100 gram set of tubulars later in the season and was slower...I doubt it was the wheels fault.
I believe aerodynamically efficient wheels can help under almost all conditions. I have not crit raced with these wheels, but for what you are asking about (fast group rides), I am not sure if much can beat them for the money. I would not hesitate to run wheels from Soul again if I am in need of a set with similar specifications for another build.
