Training vs Racing Wheels

Busy upgrading my road bike. (Tommasini)

It's price against weight.

Both Mavic wheels.

Training - Aksium, cheap but heavy.

Race - Cerium Elite - Light but expensive.

 

Would the Cerium's be viable for training too

and would the Aksium's be ok for racing.

I'm not a front contender but would like something fancy on my bike too.

The Aksiums are good for both. If you kan afford it get yourself a good set of wheels to race with. Train with them and race with them. a month or two later get yourself training wheels. You can get them for R800 easy.

Most of the guys I ride with ride Kzyruim elites on a day to day basis.....

 

I am assuming that you meant Kzyruim and not ceruim? I ride the SL 's all the time.....no problems

I don't think these are in the Mavic catalogue

Do they come in Blue?

Will suit my bike just fine.

How does the race vesion look like?

I know that the best rider in Cape Town only has one set of wheels and he uses it

for training and racing he just changes his tyres around. So its not necessary to have both. But it is nice to have two pairs of wheels.
