    Best $1000 carbon aero clincher wheelset

    I have a set of DA 7900 C24 wheels and I was looking for a less expensive carbon aero wheelset. I've noticed that in the $1000 range I could get:

    Mavic Cosmic Carbone sl

    Boyd 50 carbon

    Williams 58 carbon set

    Neuvation carbon 50

    Thoughts or other suggestions?

    I have a 2011 s-works roubaix di2. Rides are mainly through the rolling hills of the wine country.

    Thanks!

    Bonktown. Recently they've had reynolds 32V ULs at that pricepoint. Also, Shimano 7850's (if you like your current wheels).

    I'd avoid the Neuvations, I have them and while the rims are strong the rear hubs aren't that great. I've had 2 rear hubs where the freehub rubbed into the hub body. I only weigh 140 pounds, so I'm probably not too heavy for the wheels. The front hub has been fine though, bearing got crunchy with 9000miles on them and were really easy to replace. I now the the rear laced to a White Industries hub and there is much less lateral flex.
