Advice on wheels upgrade

    Hi,

    I currently have Campagnolo Zondas on the racing bike, but I'm looking for a light wheelset that will be used in road racing, and will use the Zondas for training.
    The wheels I am looking at are Shimano dura ace 9000 c24, Fulcrum racing zeros and Campagnolo Shamals.
    Would I notice a difference between the Zondas and the above? Enough of a performance difference to spend the extra cash (twice the price on most sites)

    Opinions are greatly appreciated as I have never ridden wheels better than the Zondas.

    (I'm a 67kg, 6ft tall rider if that influences which wheel suits me)

    you will undoubtedly see a difference..
    the wheels youve mentioned more than being lighter are stiffer which inturn means more responsive

    they are all beautiful and extremely well made but for sheer longevity and work horse qualities id go for the shamals
    fulcrums next..
    dura ace last
    good luck with your purchase!

    I have Zondas and Fulcrum Racing Zeros.
    The Zeros are undoubtedly better, slightly lighter, slightly stiffer.
    However, I don't think, that the Zeros are worth twice as much as the Zondas.
    But, if I had to do it again, I'd still buy them.

    Went through something similar recently. Here's the thread:

    FWIW, I went with the Dura Ace.
