I bought a set of Easton EA90 SLX wheels a few months back. No complaints, very smooth rolling. $1300 CAD retail. Ceramic bearings front and back with a very easily maintained freehub body. Not sure what you're type of reasonable is? (1360g wheelset)
I've also ridden on Fulcrum Racing 3's and Racing 5's which are both very nice alternatives.
These look like great wheels. What's your opinion on the aerodynamic advantages of adding another 10 mm to the rim depth though?
I would recommend the AC 420s, unless you're doing lots of training in bad weather (the sidewalls are not the thickest, and the bearings are said not to be super durable -- never had any problems though). Have been really enjoying mine for some serious mileage. They accelerate nicely, roll very well, and best of all, can be found for a bargain on Ebay.
I have an older model only, though, maybe the newer ones are even better.
Training in bad weather means throwing the Aksiums on for sure. Also, do you happen to know if the graphics are decals that can be de-badged?

I am interested to see what they are like, given other feedback on their carbon wheels.
On the page to buy them they claim 1710 grams! Weird.
