Flex on Ksyrium wheels?James

I'm looking at getting the K's and was wondering how much they flex. I'm about 215-220 and jump out of the seat alot. I've read(here) that the are bomb proof, But i just want to be sure.

Thanks....James

Flex isn't always bad...
I have a friend that has them on her new Calfee Tetra Tetra TANDEM!
Combined team weight is about 260 lbs. Bike weight about 30lbs.
I rode it and it felt OK to me, but we didn't do any heavy duty jumps out of saddle.

James,
I run 215 myself and ride a Trek 5900 with Ksyriums. Only had the bike for about 500 miles, but notice no flex whatsoever. These babies run smooth and true. Have hit a couple of potholes and they have remained true. Had heard about some problems with cross winds, but haven't noticed it myself. Don't hesitate...not only do they work, they look great too!
