    Good racing wheelset for under 400

    I'm entering my second road race (70 miles) in October. I'm looking to upgrade my current wheelset (Shimano WH-R500) to something lighter for the race.

    Currently I'm looking at the Vuelta Corsa Lite and the Blackset Race 11 (BWW). Are there any other good lightweight wheelsets for me (I am 6' 175lbs) at this price range.

    For the price and weight, the Blackset Race is almost impossible to beat. Sub 1500 grams for $330.
