Corima Carbon race wheels

I have recently purchased a set of the latest Corima deep section carbon race wheels from The BikeHaven in Muizenburg. They are awsome. SA seems to be hell-bent on the same few brands - Zipp, Head, Campag, Fulcrum, so I thought I would do some research whilst in Europe. The Corima wheels are actually re-badged by a number of the supposed name brands and are recognised by the European pros as excellent race wheels. Just wanted you all to know that there is an alternative to the brands we mostly see on the roads in SA and much more reasonably priced!!!

The biggest issue with high end wheels is having the backup needed if something goes wrong, which is why many guys go for the more established stuff. I'm on Zipps, and have been riding them in various guises for more than a decade. Great wheels, and it's the little things that make them awesome.

Corima has been making Carbon wheelsets since 1987. They are the leaders in Full carbon clincher wheelsets. The 2007 wheels now have a carbon hub and the wheels are 152gr lighter each. This is great wheels and as fast as ZIPP and HED and Easton. Also reasonably priced.

I think Zipp wheels are the some of the fastest wheels available. The difference may small, but I think they have the egde in aerodynamic design. Check out these pics of David Milar's TT bike, hes riding Zipps with Fulcrum stickers on:
