In the latest issue of the comic there is a big wheel test - 18 different wheels (8 tub, 10 clincher).
tub:
Bonty Aeolus
Easton T2 carbon
Lightweight standard
Controltech Carbon Comp
Fulcrum Racing Speed
Cosmic Carbone Pro
Reynolds DV-UL
Zipp 404

clincher:
Neutron
Easton T2
Shamal Ultra
FSA RD-600
Fulcrum Racing Zero
Roval Fusee
Roval Fusee Star
Spinergy Stealth PBO
Ksyrium ES
Zipp 303 Clincher

Tested on a track using SRM cranks. Just as a teaser for now I'll hold off on giving the results and invite guesses which wheels they found were fastest, and which slowest (pick one tub, one clincher, 4 guesses in total). I'll give a little hint that the fastest clincher is a lot more surprising than the slowest :D

Not giving details until I get at least one guess! Another little clue being that the fastest tub may not be the one you expect either 8)

Educated guess or inside knowledge?

First correct guess of the fastest clincher gets the reveal.

So the guess should be counter-intuitive?

The Neutrons?

So that we can get the results...

I'll guess the Fusee Star wheel won the clincher test....
