Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
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

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.

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.
