4ZA Cirrus 700C wheels
#1
Got a pair of these 4ZA Cirrus 700C wheels from Merlin about 4 weeks back for my Boardman Team Carbon. I wanted to shed some grams as bike + pedals was about 9Kg which is heavy for a carbon roadie.
Also ordered 2 Vitorria Rubino Pro tyres, Ultralight tubes & cassette removal tools, all came in about £220 & arrived next day.

Wheels were perfect from the box, front hub is super silent & runs freely, rear cassette sounds suitably 'Campag' and picks up really well to pedal input. In use the wheels are stiff for putting power down and more comfortable than the stock cheap Mavic rims & unknown hubs. Stock wheels including tyres, tubes & QR's are 2.99Kg, these are 2.23Kg complete.

They've knocked off 760g or 1.5lb which is great for £200, bike's now 8.3Kg all up and I've really noticed the difference. Bike feels a lighter when picking it up, and on the road the steering's way snappier when changing direction, avoiding pot holes n stuff. I can't say if it climbs better or is any quicker over a given distance, as my health / fitness has been all over the place lately. I've only covered 70 miles since install but handling has improved quite a bit & they look much better than stock. The tyres have been great on the wet n soggy roads of late too, a proper bargain at £25/pair (bogof).

All in all for a fairly small outlay it's made a good impact on the bike, so I'll turn my attention to swapping the other bits as & when they need it or I find decent 105/Ultegra kit to swap over.
