Anyone know where these fit into the wheelset hierarchy?
Can I save much weight with a higher end wheelset?

The Levitation is a bit like a Rolf Sestriere in that if they came on a bike, they would be a plus over a standard wheelset. But I wouldn't go out and buy them by themselves. There are simply better wheelsets out there for similar costs.

And yes, you can save a lot of weight (up to ~2 pounds) with a higher end wheelset.

have a friend with a bianchi with levitation wheels, he weighs about 195 and pops spokes like crazy. He is looking for some new wheels he can trust, cause when a spoke goes on them, they are not ridable. Other than that they seem to be pretty good wheels, if your a smaller rider they shouldn't be a problem.
