I'm looking to build a nice set of deep (50mm+) rimmed carbon wheels with SOUL-KOZAK hubs, and I was wondering what my options were for rims. I've already looked into the zipp rims, and they're sweet, but I thought I'd see if there are any other options out their. Also, I was wondering if anyone has any feedback on the soul-kozak hubs. They look really well made, and are certainly really light, but how is the durability?

Hi,
I built one time a pair of winium rims, and a few times aero rims.

Weights for 700 tubular rims is around 385gr for aero and 305gr for winium.

I didn't like building winium because it was very very hard to tight correctly the spokes (some nipples didn't fit well into the rim). I've never had this problem with the aero. I do ride myself aero rims, not expensive and very performant rims.

aero is 45mm, winium 24mm

hope these information help :wink:
