The Campagnolo Zonda has become somewhat of a staple in the Campagnolo wheelset range. While it won't be seen under the bikes that will roll down the streets of Paris on the last stage of the Tour, it has become a victorious wheelset in other ways.

"After a couple rides I'm convinced made a good decision. They didn't magically transform me into a Tour caliber rider, but they do feel solid without being harsh. Out of the saddle climbs no longer result in brake rubs (and my brakes are dialed into a little closer than previously). I upgraded a few things at the same time as switching over to these wheels, so I have no idea if the lift in speed is due to these and/or the other upgrades. They do look wicked cool on my Pinarello, though.Hard to imagine there is an all-purpose wheelset out there with better bang-for-the buck, which is reflected in the 5-Star rating.
I am running 23mm Schwalbe Ones, and the fit seems good; the tire is just slightly wider than the rim.
Kudos to Wiggle for getting them to my door in Massachusetts 4 days after I placed the order (Ordered Tuesday morning, arrived Friday afternoon), plus shipping was included."
Pros: Attractive, Comfortable, Great Value, High Quality, Lightweight, Rugged

Wheelset

The description says the wheels are "Mavic Khamsin", but Khamsin is a Campy wheel set...are the wheels Campy or Mavic (perhaps Ksyrium?)?
