I just got the 2014 Zxellium Ultimates
Coming from Bont A1's, boy these are comfortable while stiff and power transfer is perfect.
Also looks awesome with yellow / black-carbon in the middle.

I am a big Gaerne fan, I have multiple pairs from them, road and Mtb. I have always been pleased with their quality and they fit me like a glove. But for 2014 I needed a new pair, I hesitated a long time between the Chrono and the Wire. Never had the chance to try the Chrono, nobody has them here in Ottawa.
3 things made me go with the Wire.
The color choice for the Chrono, I did not want all black, all white and could not find the white and black in my size anywhere.
I was scared I would feel the wire at the top of the shoes near the ankle, but after having tried my Wire I think this is not an issue.
And last I just wanted to try something else.
Here it is full winter mode, so I have just tried the wire on my trainer but so far I am very pleased.
They are very confortable and the wire system is a pleasure to use. My only complaint is that the toe box could be a bit larger but once I am on the bike I do not feel it at all.
On topic, I used to fancy Speci S-Works road shoes to one day replace my Bont Vaypors that refuse to die. None of Spec's recent or current colorways grab me and I'd just rather spend my $ on other companies. Right now I lean towards staying with Bont (either their std Vaypor with no atop dial or the newest Zero+), but I consider Mavic a dark horse (just not sure can do a yellowish shoe!).
Std Vaypor: http://www.bont.com/cycling/products/ro ... rview.html
Zero+: http://road.cc/content/news/75031-bont- ... s-and-more
Meanwhile, my Vaypors refuse to go to shoe heaven. It's a good and bad thing - good that they haven't fallen apart or stretched out and bad that I can't reasonably feel good about popping on another pair quite yet.
