Hello. I have the Ghibli and the Comete. The Mavic Comete is by far the best one. Slightly heavier, but overall the best. These two are head and shoulders above the rest.

But you forget the Zipp Z9. That is the best disc. It's the most aero dynamic and has the smallest rolling resistence with the ceramic nitrade ball bearings. Good price to, $3000 for the wheelset. That would be my weapon of choice in a time trial, well the rear wheel anyways.

Do you think it is possible to buy the rear wheel only???
I don't find a lot of infomation about that on their site
Is there a big difference between the 'normal' zipp disc and the z9
Is the normal the 'second best' choice after the z9?
I cant buy the z9 wheelSET because I have already the front wheel...

ciaooooooooooooooooo

The Gibli is the best and about 2000€ for the rear wheel
