Budget compromise. Look of an oz wheel for less cost. Its a cool choice.

I've always been a fan of get what you really want. If it means you must save up an extra 400 to get the wheels you really like, wait it out.
You will thank yourself in the long run

I like the rally look too. I ended up with an Enkie 6 spoke because it looks like an old Speedline. Also they're easy to clean..

this is a 19 lb wheel too, so a weight savings.

For me, it was what's the lightest wheel I can afford? Spent a grand on TSW so I would say $1200 a set is not out of line.
