Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bingo! I just bought this wheel after lots of research! well actually I exchanged my super light weight Reynolds RZR with them. they are now in combination with Continental GP4000 SII. so far I have the smoothest ride ever experienced, the bike is very stiff and really comfortable. The wheelset rolls perfectly. it has really good aerodynamics so reaching and maintaining over 40++ is piece of cake. the wheelset is not the lightest but my overall setup is 7.28kg where I dont see a reason to complain. I enjoy every second of my ride. Ride safe. 19 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by An Outstanding Wheelset I have been running Zipp 303s for some time and wondered how the Shimano C50s would compare. I stripped the wheels down to their individual components to confirm where the weight difference lay. The Zipps save weight by using an alloy freehub. The C50s have a titanium free hub which is far stronger than the Zipp 303s. The Zipps also save weight by using a lightweight set of skewers. The C50s have stronger and heavier skewers of a higher quality - though some might say needlessly high. The C50s are far better in the wet and all round braking. The Zipps really struggle braking in the wet, though Swiss Yellow pads do help considerably. The Zipps are very twitchy especially in fast descents. For some this may be very off-putting and result in slower, more timid descents. The C50s, while heavier to drag up hill are amazingly stable and inspire much more confidence in fast descending. I run both Zipp 303s and the C50s and they are different. However, if I was forced to choose the C50s would be the winners. The Zipps are fantastic in their own right, however. You will not be disappointed with these beautiful C50s. A fantastic wheelset at a great price. 27 March 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by 使い道はないかな? フルクラムのレーシングZEROとの比較。 品質としてはカーボン成形時のバッグ片がリム内に残っており、異音がします。また、初期振れが大きいです。 走行性能としては加速は鈍く、重たい印象です。特に縦方向の剛性感に欠け、踏んでからの反応が悪いです。 空力面ですが、50km/h位までは目立った差を感じません。むしろ横風時の失速感が大きいと感じます。 結論として、特に使う理由が見つかりません。 24 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product! with this DA 9000 C50 wheel set, the ride feel is greatly improved and is a good investment! 31 December 2013

Answers

Answer: 
It is not advised to mix Sram and Shimano 11-Speed systems as cassette/freehub spacing has a slight variation in width; which will effect drivetrain efficiency.

Answer: 
Yes. Just make sure your chainset, chain and cassette and derailleurs are all compatible., i.e. 10 speed throughout or 11 speed throughout.

Answer: 
With Continental 400s tyres, Conti' lightweight tubes, Dura-Ace skewers and Shimano 11-28 Cassettes fitted the wheelset compares with Zipp Firecrest 303s as follows:

Zipp Front 1090 g
C50 Front 1200
Zipp Back 1510 g
C50 Back 1660 g
Thus the difference is 260 g

However, the benefits in braking with the C50s cannot be understated. I have been riding the 303s during the wet winter and the weakness in breaking in the wet is scary, even with SwissStop Yellows fitted.
Thus for wet I am running my c50s and dry my 303s.

Enjoy.

Answers

Answer: 
These wheels will take Ultegra cassettes without any additions.
If you are running a 10-speed drivetrain make sure you install the 1.85 mm washer that comes with the wheelset. This moves the 10-speed cassette 1.85 mm outboard to line up with your rear derailleur.
If you are running an 11-speed drivetrain you simply install your 11-speed Ultegra cassette without the 1.85 mm spacer.

The wheels are fantastic.
