Thinking to pick them up for a good looking 'beater' set, price makes them tempting..

I've ridden then and liked them a lot, it's a pretty solid value. Did a review on my blog about them. Bottom line they are not a race wheel but they do a good job if you want one wheel for everything and don't race.

They're pretty heavy for the price. If you're just looking for a carbon wheelset at a price that doesn't hurt too much, how about the Flo45s?

You might want to act fast on the 45s if you choose to go that route though since they have exactly 1 set left in their store.

I'm in the UK guys. The Flo 45s would be great too but I'd probably have to order them in from the US and get smacked with duties. Would end up more than a set of 302s :shock:

Any new reviews of the 302s? Do they feel heavy?
What other options would you consider in the same price point and same profile (40mm would be ok too)?
