Any of the above seem to be just under $1400.00... the Ritchey's even less...
I've also heard the Ritchey's are the best "value"...
help me decide!
Of your selection, I'd go with the HED tri spoke. You should look at the Hed Jet 60's and 90's as well as the Flashpoint FP80 and FP60's. They both come in less than $1400. The new Hed Jet C2 is scandium and cannot be beat. Read the reviews on it, it's supposed to be the cats pajamas. I wish I wouldn't have just purchased my regular Jets because I'd be riding those right now.
The Ritcheys are slightly more aero than the Eastons (due to their shape, which is basically an undimpled Zipp). However, their hubs aren't that great. If you are only using them for racing it shouldn't be a problem, but I doubt they'll stay good for too long if you do a lot of training on them.
I have the Eastons for ITU racing. They're ok. Pretty light (slightly lighter than 404s), but aren't anything special.....very comprable to similarly priced wheels.
The trispoke will be the heaviest (I also think they're ugly), but also the most aero of your three. If you do very hilly tris they might not be the best, but for flat ones they'll be the fastest of those three.
Wow, have to respectfully disagree with that opinion. Tri-spokes are the best looking wheels on the market, except for maybe a sub 9 disc. Get a nice disc on the back and a tri spoke on the front and your bike will look way better....and possibly be aerodynamic as well, but I'm not sure because I don't care much about performance ;-)
The HED-3s are great wheels - very durable - running a tri-spoke front and rear works in any wind condition. And yup, they ARE the best looking wheels out there!
Got a powermeter already?
