|Does Campagnolo make good entry level wheels?||RadicalRonPruitt|

|Like the Proton, Sciroco, or Zonda?|
|Sure, but are they worth the money?||Kerry Irons|

|Given that you can buy a Velocity Aerohead/Ultegra pre-built wheel for $210, or a Open Pro/Chorus for $290, it's hard to justify the price for any factory built wheel set.|

|There are numerous websites where factory wheelsets can be purchased at even lower prices than custom wheelsets.
Taking this into account, I would say the price difference is a non-issue. To answer the original question; yes, entry level Campagnolo wheelsets are very good. I ride the Sciroccos and am very pleased with them. Fairly light weight (1830 g) and 30mm deep rims. A very nice all-around wheelset.
|Protons use Chorus hubs and cost $300.||dzrider|

|The Protons accelerate better and require no more maintenance. I think the looks alone are worth $10.00. The only reason I'd prefer Open Pros is for the fun of building them.|| |
