    For a Kestrel Talon. I have a set of each, and I'm a C&V guy, so I know zilch about which is better.
    Presently running some very light Alex Equations, a little twitchy.

    Ksyrium Elites are a definite step above Bontrager Race wheels. Bontrager Race Lites (a step up from Race) are closer to the Mavics, though I'd still give a nod to the Ksyrium Elites in that case.

    Thanks. As a more vintage fan, I have no clue about modern wheels, or where they fall in relation to each other.

    The lightest wheels I have are some hand-built DA's laced to NOS Wolber Super Champion Alpines (350g/rim) w/Ti spokes and axles.
    They may be the lightest, but I'm not sure I'd want to run them on the Kestrel. They're super on the Ti bike, though.
