Are the 9000-c24 also 23mm wide D2 rim?

How did you find that deal? I just went to their site to check it out and couldn't find the C35 clincher. Please send me a link if you have one.

Sold out now understandably....
They were 639£ less 20% VAT for me... Worked out to be $830 AUD...
Was a good deal... Look to be low stock now in the UK

This turned out to be a scam by SigmaSports... See the general forum for details....

Agree that would be the perfect bike for me. Love the new C35s. I have the current C24 and they have been super nice.

anyone tried the new DA 9000 c35 wheels?

i'm looking at either DA 9000 wheels, and heard the c35s are a lot lighter than last year. Trying to decide if i want a set of c24's or c35's or maybe even a 24 front/35 rear.

That's exactly what I'm going for as soon as I sell my Ksyrium slrs. 24f, 35rear on my sl4.

Think it will be a nice combination. Stiff rear wheel and that great ride up front. And the hubs of course. Sick of those mavics now.

The staff from RIDE did not like the C35

What did Ride say about it? You link shows nothing but an ad for Ride.

You should be able to click on the picture of the front page and open the actual article for free on Zinio I was able to.

Saying not deep or shallow enough and slower than the tubular version and that the C24 is a better option between the two.

Neither the c24 or c35 have a wide rim. The 9000 C35 measures 21mm outside width.

I rode the wheels in 2012 and they were amazing, not as fast as reynolds assault or some of the other medium profile carbon clinchers. But with the c35 you get the best breaking surface and also they will last longer because of it. So the extra 200grams are well spend if you ask me. Hubs are smooth and you will feel the difference from 58mm rims to thoose 38mm rims on the 35.
