How common are deep V Zipps on the race circuit? The 58mm ones like 440's or the newer 404's.

I have the 58mm full carbons, with Tube hubs and Sapim CX-Ray spokes. Super-fast, but I'm still trying to get some brakepower out of them.
What do they weigh? nmswede16

155-160 Lb's. I had been using them for the road and I really like them with the exception of in very windy situations they do catch the cross winds. I had planned on scaling down to some 340's but have not had much sucess finding a used pair with a campy compatible hub so I will stick with the 440's. The cross wind issue doesn't seem to me to be as big an issue in a Cyclo cross environment.
I meant the wheel weight . . .swede16

you know, now I can see that. It's their weight not, your weight. I'm not totaly sure I know they are one of the lightest wheels around though. I could get back to you on that.
Mine : 1305g, 24 spokes front and 28 rear nmJan_Gerrit
