Fulcrum 5 evolution wheels --- Rider weight limit?

Hi Folks-
I have a pair of these wheels posted in the FS section, and I received a question regarding rider weight limit. Can anyone shed light on this? Also, is there a weight limit on my Ksyrium SL's? I am 160 lbs. Thank you!

I asked Fulcrum this question one time about a set of Racing 7's and their reply was they don't publish weight limits because of different factors that play into forces on the wheels and that you should use your best judgement and common sense. I figured this was a total cop out and allows them to look at warranty claims on a claim by claim basis. I figure if you file a claim with them one of their questions would be rider weight and that would play into whether they allow the claim or not.
