Shimano rs11 or specialized roval fusee slx23

Both second hand wheelsets, the rs 11 is $90 with approximately 10000km+ on them and the specialized at around $200 with less kms (not exactly sure) but have just been serviced!

Which do you reckon??

RS11 wheelset is $193 brand new from CRC...I'd rather pay the extra $100 and know there are no issues

A 2-year warranty is offered with all Shimano products from Chain Reaction Cycles

I'd pick the Shimano wheels every time. Better reliability, easy servicing and easily sourced spare parts.

Distance in itself isn't particularly relevant; how they've been ridden is more crucial. 10,000km of open roads is much friendlier on wheels than 10,000 urban km with stacks of braking.

That aside, another vote for the Shimano wheels from me; although often considered "crude" and "old-fashioned", the angular contact AKA cup-n-cone bearings that Shimano use in all their hubs are a superior system to radial contact cartridge bearings because they offer better lateral support to the wheels.
I had a thought, but it got run over as it crossed my mind.
