Wheel Upgrade Advice

Looking for some advice thinking about upgrading my wheels, I have a Specialized Roubaix SL4 (disc brake) that is on the standard Alex rims that came with it. I <snip>, does anyone have any advice? The 3 I was looking at are below. I was ideally hoping to have change out of my €1,000 to spend on new helmet, shorts etc but wondering if it's worth it going the extra for the one of the two more expensive options. Any advice guys?

Mavic Ksyrium Pro Disc CL €699
Giant SLR1 €1,100
Zipp 302 carbon €1,200

Haven’t tried any of those 3 but had these of previous bike and thought they were very good.

Under €500 so leaves plenty of change for other gear

I have the SLRs and love them. I find them good for climbing, build quality is good and sound great

Haven't used any of those models either but depends what weight you are really.
I know a few lads are having problems with giant wheels, I had myself in the past. Spokes keep breaking.

Out of those three, Mavic all the way for me for usability / reliability / durability and a heck of a saving

some good deals on ebay,i bought these last week and im expecting them delivered on Monday,hopefully they turn out legit. The Mavic Ust system along with their tyres seems to be the best of the tubeless offerings.

I notice the same seller had a disc version for sale at the same price last week.

Had the Mavics and didn't like them, ended up buying Prime 38mm RR carbon disc wheels and love them. Had them on a Roubaix too

Pi cycles in Mallow had the slr 1 on sale for 700 euro a few days ago. Check their Facebook page. Might be gone.
I have a set and rate them above dura ace c25. Elites, and zondas.
