I rode with the old campag shamal, IMO, you could not as for a more sturdier wheel than that, heavy yes, but awesome freewheel and i tell u what, freewheeling on any campag wheel is just music to my ears......

 

better than sex i tell you

 

Dont wait a second longer........... upgrade!!!!!!

tooHot!!! Het jy die gewig van die nuwes gesien? Ek persoonlik drool al lank oor daardie babies, hulle prys by marvuli is ook nie te bad nie.

The new Shamals are nothing like the old ones.

 

 

 

Less aero (more spokes, shallow rim) but a helluva lot lighter (1,4kg for the set, apparently).

 

 

 

The hubs are carbon and the only colour they come in is porn star gold.

 

 

 

I reckon you can't go wrong!!!!!!

I used to drool over these years ago...not too fond of the latest colour scheme though (unless you have a yellow Colnago). Have to agree with TH on the sound of Campy freewheels...*goose bumps*

 

Why are you considering only Shamals? What else are you considering? What kind of price range?

Shew, they are alot diff from the old shamal, i am not sure if i like them Confused

 

The old shamal was beautifull, with that deep 40mm profile and that silver sparkle....... oooooooh so nice!!!!

 

But yeah the freewheel on any campy wheel is just pure poetry.

 

Well i am not sure how great these new shamals are, but they can't be too bad, i personally prefer the profile wheels, if you are looking for light wheels i am not sure what is the market leader these days....

 

Will try and find out

I prefer the (equivalent?) Fulcrum racing 0's. Red colour is also loud, just less bling.

Faan,

 

Daai Shamals lyk nie so erg bling soos hulle op die fotos lyk nie. Ek het hulle al gesien, daai goud kleur is baie meer "mat" as "gloss" ... as ek dit nou so kan stel.

 

Dink jy moet maar vir jou 'n stel kry!  ;-)

Now if you have one of those older gold editon TCR Giant's like WorcesterWheelers, and the matching gold Elite bottle cages, then it's bike pimpin'...don't forget the gold Nokon cables..

 

That said, I tore out 9 spokes on my Campy Vento rear after a year of use (uses the same G3 spoke system). Waiting on our good friends at J&J to hear if they're going to replace the wheel.

On the Campy website they reckon they don't guarantee their components if you are over 80 kg's. Not sure if they can enforce this because the actual warranty card that comes with their parts don't state this.

They don't look so bling as you would think. Limited to certain bike coulours i guess, but they are great wheels and you can not go wrong buying them. Great wheels and very light for alu wheels. Faan just buy them man!!Hug

Cant go wrong with campy wheels,train on ventos for two years and no problems. Use the Zondas for racing and no hassles, just love the sound they make.

 

Dont know if I like the gold not my cup of tea!!!
