I asked about that wheelset and the response was that they are not the aero U shape. I'm kind of confused as to which wheelset to get in a 38mm clincher. I've also noticed that their pricelist weights being emailed do not match their website weights. It doesn't seem to matter when I send a question, email responses come about every 1.5 days and are often confusing, making the process of ordering frustrating and time consuming. If they would just list the wheel shape (u or v) and the width along with the other specifications on their eCommerce site, I would have probably ordered a week ago.
(1) The information that I received on the "new aero 38mm wide (25mm)" U shaped road clincher wheelset mentions it uses a cyclocross rim and weighs 1560g +/- 30g and I'm guessing that it has the combined braking surface.
(2) 38mm (23mm wide) non-aero (V shaped?) weighs 1250 +/- 30g
(3) new 38mm (20.5mm wide) high aero U shaped 1245+/- 30g
Opinions? Anything else that I should consider? I wish that there was a 23mm aero U shape in the 1250g range,
