if you have good quality roads and little rain where you are then yes, if not, no.

ok don't rub it in! :wink:

they are a relatively expensive daily wheelset as you're no doubt aware but if you can afford it then go for it!

I'd go for it. They should be just fine.
Have fun. That's what it's all about.

^ couldn't agree more. If they make you happy then ride them every single day. Never understood why people who don't race much have the nice wheels sitting in the garage depreciating only to see the light of day for 3 fondos a year.

Will be brilliant everyday dry wheels. I personally use alu if I know it's going to rain. It's not just reduced stopping distance it's the potential damage of riding expensive carbon in the wet. I assume these wheels won't be your only set.

I would say that they are not ideal daily drivers.
Light? Yes. Well built? Probably.
But ready to take 365 days of pounding? Not so sure.
Not to say they are noodles, just not as robust as an ENVE, Xentis, or some other choices.
But if you are willing to spend some time on the truing stand, they should be fine.
