Currently running the older DA scandium which is very durable. I am looking for some dampening from the carbon and more aero rim.
I plan to switch between the Scandium C24 and C35 depending on the condition.
However I will say if you are going to buy Shimano ones don't buy them now. Wait 8 more days.

Lots of things will happen in 8 days, the sun will rise and set, babies will be born, people will ride their bikes and I'm sure other things will happen as well.
All DA level wheels are the same save for the 24, 35, 50 and 75 mm rims. Spoking across all of them is 16/20.
Why the C35 rims cost £250 a piece more than the CL24s is beyond me. Plus as a heavier racer (83kgs) I need as little extra inertial as possible for hills/sprint. I rode both sets but went for the CL24s b/c I tend to ride bumpy (lots of little hills) and curvy courses so acceleration > aero for me.

Ha, I waited, The DA 9000 wheels looks quite amazing, in that they have widened it to 23mm. (wish it was 24 like the tubs)
However not sure if I prefer hidden nipples, and I don't like the notches they added on the rim surface, which is why I didn't buy the CL24.
