Kysiriums - Keep or sell(4 posts)

Kysiriums - Keep or selltrijunior
Nov 13, 2003 5:56 AM
getting the new specialized s-works, wonder what you guys think about the new knsyrium sl's. keep them or sell them and be well on my way to a pair of zipps. Pretty flat here, aero seems to be the big advantage. anyone know how the 404 or 303 compares with the mavic kysirium

Based on your screen name, trijunior, I am guessing you spend a good bit of time in the aero position. If so, go with the Zipps.

Unless you do some big hills or lots of accelerations, I think either set, especially the 404's will out shine and perform the K's.

I have a Spec Sworks w/ K's. I bought the 404's last year. Keep the K's and ride them in the winter or training. The Zipps are faster, much more aero. I too spend most of my time on flat terrain. The 303's are a compromised (well compromised) wheelset. If you keep the K's, you'll have a great fairly lightweight tough wheelset and one of the best aero wheelsets available. If you cannot keep the K's then I would consider the 303's.

How do the zipps hold up with 200+ riders? The SLs gave me no problems. Any input on this?
