currently running zipp 303 2008 clincher

got a nice price on a bonrager aeolus 5.0 clincher 2008 at my lbs

wonder if the aeolus will be better than the zipp on the flat roads

it's 44mm for the zipp v/s 50mm for the aeolus

zipp is alu braking surface, 20F/ 24R, zipp 82/182 hubs
aeolus is full carbon 16F, 16R, DT 240S hubs (I think)


~1620g for the zipp

not much info on the aeolus, except design by HED and carbon is trek OCLV 110

should I get the aeolus? is it durable? I think most people would recommend me go with HED, but the aeolus will be cheaper for me at my lbs offer

TIA :)

The Bontrager wheels have Alloy braking surface as well. I believe that they weigh in the neighborhood of 1650g also.
Maybe post some more info. Your weight, type of riding you tend to do and so on.
Not sure what you are spending on this but can you get Reynolds or Edge built wheels for the same $$$.
I would look into that also.
