I'm looking at buying a new C60 with Bora Ultra 35 wheels and Dura9000 and have been looking for the maximum weight for a rider. I'm just below 100kg and I wanted to make sure the bike I am building will be able to take my weight.

Also I am currently using a Cannondale Synapse Carbon 3 with Mavic Axiom wheels and ultegra (10 speed) components. Do you guys think I will see a big difference on the the C60 when ridding?

I haven't been able to take the C60 out for a test ride as the store doesn't have any in stock nor has the weather permitted.

If there is one bike with no rider weight limit, it will be the C60!

Make sure you also build it with solid wheels.

Are the Bora Ultra 35 strong enough to take the weight or should I stay away from Carbon?

Thanks

Boras are solid wheels. You shouldn't have any issue with them.

They are solid, but at 100kg, why not go with the 50mm Bora's and gain some aero advantage?
That would be more effective than the weight savings between the 50 and 35mm versions for you.
Plus those deeper wheels are arguably better for your weight (at least real world tested longer.)
