Difference between Shimano WH-R540 and WH-R550

Hey everybody!,

Does somebody know what the key-diffrence is between the Shimano WH-R540 and WH-R550, besides the one is newer than the other. I do have tech spec's on these wheels, but i am looking for people that has used them both and can talk out of experience.

What are you arguments to buy which wheel?

Which to buy? Sorry for the european measures; i'm am around 70 kg, euh 70 times 0,45 is 155 lbs. I will not use them in competitions and i do not wear my gear down within a year. Common speed between 25 km/h and 40 km/h (16mph and 25 mph).

Greetz from Holland,


ps. I know this isn't a fair question, but how do these Shimano wheels hold up against wheels like the Mavic Ksyrium Elite 2004?
