I'm looking at building up a new cyclocross rig and I was debating between two wheelsets (I do not want custom). Any other factory built suggestions are welcome. Zipp Course 30 Disc and the Mavic Ksyrium Allroad CL. Both are are approximately the same price.The Zipps are nice because they are 2mm wider, but the allroads are CL which would let me use the new Shimano rotors.

Does anyone use either of these wheelsets or have experience with the new Shimano rotors? I'm curious to what your opinions would be .

Have a look at Roval SLX24 too, a bit lighter than the Zipp's and cheaper. Really good wheels which I used all this season.

Haven't tried the new Shimano rotors but I don't really like the look of them.

I second this, also much better internals (DT Star Ratchet) than Mavic or Zipp on the hubs.

you don't buy rotor for theirs looks @cerro

Shimano XTR/ DURA ACE
are the best rotor
they manage heat very good
they brake better and with a better feeling than all the sram centerline
and super light crappy rotor

Only available in Centerlock tough
so you better buy wheels or hubs with center lock standard

RT99 definitely feels and brakes worse than Sram Centerline. And it's heavier. And do not manage heat at all, so has cooling fins for that. RT99 sits more outward from the hub, what can make a difference for a frame&wheel setup with really tight tolerances.

Looks worse too ;)

Of course you do ;) That's why I get Centerline X with a alu spider instead of the regular Centerline for my wheels :)
