Currently I have DA7900 C24 on my other bike. I like the new C24 but a few friends told me fulcrum zero are great.
How are C35 for climbing anyway?I always wanted to get C35 for a while but my accountant never agreed on the price :|

You won't beat the C24 for climbing since the rims weigh just 380 grams so less rotational weight. The C35 have heavier rims but are more aero due to the deeper rim.

The C35 clinchers are not areola enough to outweigh the weight cost better off getting the C50s

The OP was asking about a climbing/all round wheelsets and included the C24 and C35 as choices. No mention of the C50, which in any case is quite heavy to be a climbing wheelset.

I'm a bit of a climber and bought a set of Core Carbon 38's a couple of months ago. Less than 1,300 grams and under $1,400. My Strava times have dropped dramatically :) Seriously though, they are a great wheel and Peter is very responsive.

I also had a crash at ~45 kph when I went into a road grill and they survived with only a slight out of alignment.

I've narrowed it down to 9000 C24 and fulcrum zero dark label.
I really like the 9000 QRs they look cool. Fulcrum look more bling and they're black (matches my bike) :D
Now i just need an approval from the boss lol

Do 2:1 spoke ratio on fulcrum really matter?

The 9000 C24's are $760 now from cycling express.

Anyone with real world experience, flexy? I'm tempted but at 85kgs on a 16/20 spoke count doesn't inspire confidence. I started way back on some R550's and they went like nooddles after a while.
