    DP18's are more aero (similar to deep v's) LP18's are less aero.

    L= Low
    D= Deep
    P= Profile
    18= 18mm outer width.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    What about the weight difference between the two? I tried looking online but could not find anything.

    I have owned both and the dp18 are slightly heavier than deep vs I don't remember exact weight and the lp18s are slightly heavier than the alex r450

    that is as good as it gets Why does weight eve matter on el cheapo wheels in the first place???

    Cool okay thanks. I was just curious and wanted to get the lightest wheelset for the cheapest price (>$200).

    We stock both and the DP18 is more stiff and rigid- but if you are after weight LP18 is very decent and strong.

    I've had a pair of the LP18s with the formula hubs for a couple months now. They are light and fast and a great wheelset for the money.

    The Weinmanns are good for the money but those Mavics are the real deal for same price.

    DP18 is 680g
    I don't think the LP18 is going to win any light weight records either.
