Not much buzz on the Eurus?(3 posts)

Not much buzz on the Eurus?Abol98

Anyone have anything to say about these wheels? I was pretty much set to follow the herd and get Ksyriums SLs as the set on my new ride for 540$, but I can get a set of the Eurus for slightly less with my Chorus build kit. One spec of wisdom I've gleaned on these boards is that you can't beat the synergy between Campy wheels and a Campy drivetrain... true?

They seem more aero with similar weight. Durability's a question with the high spec hubs and low spoke count. Anyone running these wheels?

I have a set of Eurus wheels on my Litespeed Siena. The wheels are excellent. They have that rare combination of being light, strong, aerodynamic, and comfortable. I tried Ksyriums but found them to be too stiff for recreational riding. Also, it was windy the day I tried them and I could feel the effect in crosswinds. I haven't hit any major potholes yet with my Eurus', so I can't say for sure how they will hold up under a big hit. Also, the spokes don't have nipples, so any tuning is done through the rim with a 5mm nut driver after removing the wheel tape. Overall, I am very impressed with them. I don't race, so keep that in mind.

Serotta Legend Ti, Record, Eurus wheels. Wheels are great, strong enough for daily riding, quick enuogh to race on and they look way cool.
