Trying to decide between these

Fulcrum racing zero carbons.
Pros.
24mm wide
Ceramic bearings
Fairly light
Cons:
Not necessarily a con but, clincher
Not as light as the racing speeds.



Fulcrum racing speed 35
Pros:
Lighter
Tubular
Not sure if as STIFF as the racing zero??
Cons :
20mm wide
No ceramic bearings
Tubular

Also in a tubular wheelset, is the rim width as important as it is with clincher?

To me just like this the main difference is clincher vs. tubulars.

You should however indicate your purpose (flat, hilly, high mountain, ....) and your ambition (speed, ...) so that we can give you more advices.
BTW, do you use already tubs?

no i've never owned tubs but i have tried the ultra bora and the fulcrum speed 40's from friends and they are great wheels very stiff and light but not willing to dish out that kinda cash at this moment, but i can dish out on the ones i mentioned better price range for me at least.

my ride style is everything climbing descending and flats. i currently own a pair of boyds 44mm carbon clinchers.
alos was thinking baout the campy ones 35mm.

The Bora 35 Ultra would be a first choice IMHO for you. They give you everything you want ;-) Ceramic, wide rims, stiff, aerodynamic, light,...You can't go wrong with these wheels!
But the main question for you will still be clinchers vs. tubulars. Many riders just want the tubs because of the weight; others don't want to bother with the cons of tubs (spare tub to carry for example).
If you want to "feel" a big difference with your current wheels, go for the Bora 35 Ultra tubular. At least you will "feel" the change with the tubulars, in the ride and in the maintenance.
