Which rim depth for which conditions??

Especially for light weight issues concerning cyclocross / touring bikes & parts.

Hi guys,

If you were setting out from scratch with the plan of getting your ideal cx wheel set-up, what depth rim would you chose for what conditions, so for instance:

Hard dry fast (Pipistrello)
All round (Typhoon)
Full on mud (Rhino)

Rim depth
Shallow (202, 1.25)
Mid (303, EC90 SL)
Deep (404, EC90 SL Aero, 1.45)

Just use a 303/404 type depth for everything then your covered for cutting through sand/snow/mud...really can't see why you need to worry about anything else.
