Hey guys,

I'm doing this post so as to gather advices from you.

So my next build is going to be a Tarmac SL8 Sworks, with Super Record EPS v4 (Got a smoking deal) but I don't know which wheels to put on it.

On one hand, rapides seem like the logical option but I don't want to be the typical specialized billboard. On the other hand, the new bora look cool but I'm afraid of losing performance

I race at a fairly good level. Open 2 in France.
Do you have any feedback on those wheels?

Thank you guys !

For Sr EPS? No brainer - Boras. Not only these are fantastic wheels, but they look unique and match the groupset perfectly.

I can compare the Rapide vs the previous version Bora WTO60 DB only, but this probably does not help here. What I can share is that the Rapides are exceptionally well built, good looking, fast and in crosswind very very calm.

I just got a pair of Corima MCC dX 47, got a crazy deal so I'll give them a try

I might be selling my Bora 60 WTO if you decide to go that route
