I need a light aero wheelset. No disc wheel and things like that.

I need a high rim wheel that can be used at draft racing and at non draft, I'm doing triathlon..

Money no problem.

You cannot go wrong with a pair of Zipp 404 tubular wheels. Aero, strong, great for road and tri races. I don't know how much they go for in Germany, but you can always pick up a used set on Ebay or you can order from a shop in Canada or the US and have them write "gift" on the overseas shipping form so that you can avoid paying taxes. I just solved all of your problems. :D

Go for the Reynolds Stratus DV or DV-UL KOM. They are lighter and stronger than the Zipp 404's.
