Next step: Mavic Exalith, or DT Swiss Dicut OXic wheelset. Then your path to the dark side will be complete.

They look ok, but they can't touch Exalith or Dicut OXics. In looks or braking performance.

It was really nice stuff - looks, craftmanship, engineering. I just didn't care for the ergonomics of the hoods or the shifting motion.
