These are both great wheels. Go for the MCC if you can afford them.

Really? How come? I trust your opinion on heaps of things so would be interested about it on these wheels, which I haven't really read any reviews of.

Hi,

http://www.corima.com/wheels/winium-plus-mcc-carbon-wheel.html

IMO they're extraordinary wheels in every respect. Naturally the Winium series are optimized for climbling, low weight, low inertia, high lateral stiffness, you name it. IOW they do better than any wheel I can think of where it matters.

I tend to take reviews, online or hardcopy alike, for what they are but the figures speak volumes. Add a excellent braking to it and replaceable carbon spokes and you can see why they're well received.

Reviews can be found on the internet so I won't link any in here.

Thanks for the compliment, BTW. 8)

I believe that he will buy the wheels Winium MCC +, that are rigid, and light, 980gr. I hope that I am not upset with. I believe that it is a better choice that LW Gipfelsturm.

I am on the fence between these two wheels as well - the problem is that I weigh 76kg, so I am concerned that I will be within a couple kgs of the 85kg they list as total system weight. I race Cat 2 & have had trouble with wheels flexing in the past. Any advice/guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Thx

You will not get any flex under any of these wheels. However for a all around wheel the Viva S would be better fit and maybe even look at the Aero + MCC (-10gr, deeper wheel).

They are all very stiff under load, so no flexing and rubbing the pads. Super low spoke count and special rim shape keeps them very well behaved in any condition.

Oh and all the people you getting asking about them will be nice too ;)

Hi,

It's truly a pity that I can't seem to find the measurement figures on these wheels anymore but from the top of my head, the Viva seem like they'd suit you better.

About seven years ago Corima wheels were considered just a bit below the best Campagnolo top enders.
Nowadays, well for a few years already, they're ahead of most of their competitors.

Ciao, ;)

We are looking at;

Winium + MCC 980 grams, 24mm rim, 12 spokes F&R
Viva S MCC 1090 grams, 32 mm rim, 12 spokes F&R
Aero + MCC 1080 grams, 47mm rim, 12 spokes F&R

Corinna is finally here in the US and will be making head way. With http://corimausa.com/ will get things going here in the states.

Hi,

Funny how you're not asking for one of my accounts numbers to pour a load of dollars in...?

So I take it Corima has changed distributors in the US? A less greedy one perhaps?

Ciao, ;)

P.S. I sure hope you actually do get things going in the States, Corima sure deserves it.
