I'm going to buy Campy Hyperon Wheels.
Could you tell me everything you know about them, please? I don't know a lot about these wonderful wheels (Except price...).
My Colnago C40 would be good with Hyperon?

Thanks in advance

Can I have a Lamborgini Diablo VT for X-mas?

The wheels are light, carbon, and expensive as hell. But the Zip 303^3 is lighter, at under 1000 grams.

Are you aware that they use tubular tires? Unless you simply must have them I believe there are better wheels available that also happen to cost less. And of course your C40 will be good with basicly any set of wheels attached to it.

they've gotten great reviews by cycling plus.
they say you can really feel the difference.

I believe they use the same hub internals as the record hubs with a carbon shell so there should be no problem with reliability
