I assume you are not a lightweight and have decent handling skills. Zipps can blow around a bit. Secondly, have you practiced TTT? If you have not, there can be crashes trying to maintain such close distances. Third and probably most important - Zipps have a crash replacement policy that they do the repair at about half cost (so $1200 rims would cost you $600 to replace). To me as long as you have any handling skills, go with the wheels, because even if you do mess them up (unlikely) it will probably not cost as much as you were originally worried about. Oh, and please use Carbon specific brake pads…your friend will thank you.
