Guys,

Any updates on the plasma coating issue? Have you just learned to live with it?

Is it an issue really? Off course it wears.

Users says it wears (Fulcrum 0Nite), Fulcrum says it wears... and anyone still have doubts about it ? I wonder why .. .

I can be wrong, and have plenty of examples for that ;)

Those with patchy coating, perhaps buff the coating off with a dremil and a scouring pad?

Mavic is better Design
Fulcrum is more performance

I've had massive problems w/ the mavics (R-sys SLR) with crummy rear hub and also both wheels developing significant flex after about a year of riding. Mavic tried re-tightening the spokes but it hasn't had that much positive effect. On the plus side the coating never wore off and always worked well and extremely well in the rain where they were a massive advantage vs others on carbon on long descents in the wet. Fwiw I'm 75 kgs.

Just to reignite this debate.... I already have some zero nites but have been looking at some second hand R-sys for another bike. Not sure if i have been fortunate but my zero nites have shown little to no wearing of the brake track, even though i live in a desert i have used them all through the winter and have been caught out a number of times by wet conditions even a couple of torrential downpours without any noticeable effect. I wonder if its something to do with the chemicals you may well find on the roads in europe which when mixed with water and the brake pads causes the scouring effect some are seeing.

I used Mavic Ksyrium SLR and Campagnolo Shamal Mille Wheelset. I felt SLR was harder than Mille.
Racing Zero is similar to Shamal Mille I thought.
The choice will be depends on your riding style...

I pulled the trigger on a DT Swiss pr 1400 oxic, waiting for them to arrive.
Was in doubt on which ones to choose between mavic, campagnolo and dt Swiss.
Mavics have great feedback on the rims, campagnolo on the hubs, dt Swiss seemed a good compromise between the two.
And are less on the roads, ok they're newer then the other two brands...

Good if we get some real user feedback on the DT Swiss 1400 wheels.
Up to now the main work-horse wheels are still the Mavic Ksyrium SLR (2014) with some very minor signs of coating wear.

I've had the Dt Swiss PR1400 oxic wheels for a month now. They're as good as the online reviews say. Hub isn't clicky and loud like standard 240s hubs. They're fairly quiet and sound like a space ship! Breaking performance isn't much different imo to standard alloy wheels but the brake track hasn't worn after a weekend in the lakes
