    Suggestions for wheelset upgrade for Synapse Disc

    Please offer some suggestions for my 105 Synapse Disc. I would like a wheelset as good as the ones on my CAAD which are Mavic Aksium S WTS.
    Under 400 dollars?

    As good as in what sense? Weight? Bearings? Looks?

    You could build, or have built for you, some decent wheels for $400. I spent roughly $500 on my commuter wheelset albeit only with a front disc hub. ~1400 grams, 32 spokes front and rear, American Classic hubs and IRD rims. Plenty of cheaper options out there depending on your goals.

    Not looking to build it. Just want a total package, the wheels on my CAAD are average for a nice bike but I am very happy with it and I am sure would be a nice upgrade from the OEM Maddux 3.0 on the Synapse.

    Mavic Ksyrium Pro Disc Wheelset for $549. Maybe a bit of a budget stretch but tires are included, too: Mavic Ksyrium Pro Disc Wheelset 2015 > Components > Wheels > Road Wheels | Jenson USA

    Pro Lite Revo A21 Aloy Disc. I'm planning to buy a set. I saw them at Merlin for under $400 but can't find them now. Wiggle has them for $491.00 with free shipping.

    I think they are fairly light too.
