Im looking to get a new set of wheels, spending up to abut 300$ tops. I want a solid set of wheels , good for racing, training etc. someone recommened these wheels for SUpergo; does anyone have any experience with them? I have never heard of them and there are no reviews posted. supposedly they are based on teh same patent as Bontrager or Rolf Vectors. any help would be appreciated.

For $300, Record/DA laced to Open Pros can't be beat. I've seen silver Open Pro's with Dura Ace hubs for as low as $259. Bullet proof wheelset.
