How are these wheels compared to other deep dish wheels? I thought of Bora but my lbs wants to give me employ discount on a set. If these are good wheels I might be tempted though I'm not too keen about their decal and prefer black spokes. I haven't decided on clincher or saw-ups yet either.

The Reynolds Stratus DV's used to be the LEW wheels. They are considered to be the strongest carbon rims ever made. They use extremely high quality hubs made by White Industries. As for the aerodynamics- I don't think they are as aero as Zipp 404's since they are only 48mm rims vs the Zipps 58mm. But, they are extremely light. I have the LEW's and they are the only wheel where I can actually feel the weight difference when climbing.

If you want a good aero wheel that is extremely light and very durable then the Stratus is for you. I'd go with the Tubulars since they are even lighter.

You wouldn't happen to be able to get a deal on them for a pal would you? If so, I'll take a set of Campy compatable tubbies!
