Title says it all really.......

I currently have a set of Shamal wheels which are great but was looking for some Sunday best wheels. It will have to be a Campag wheel in order to tie the rest of the bike together but are the Ultra two's really worth the extra money/ bling factor?

What would you suggest - stick with Bora ones or go the extra £600 (here in the UK) for the Ultra twos?

Thanks

Performance difference should be minimum. Carbon hub shell and CULT bearing (maybe also nicer spoke but I am not sure).

Stickers are way cooler on the ultra 2. Just received mine actually :lol:

Hi,

Any Bora One set can be upgraded to CULT level bearings. All it takes is two spare part kits and the necessary tools.
You can even order a sticker kit for the U2 should you "need" the extra bling.... :lol:
Performancewise the difference between U2 and U1 shoulds be minimal. I'd be surprise if anyone would notice the difference.

That said, both are superb wheels, strong and very reliable.

Ciao, ;)
