Reading through this post for the first time. I wasn't on carbon hoops until this summer and now I "get it". The performance and reliability has been quite good for me so far on a pair of Bontrager Line 40s and Crank Bros Synthesis wheels on an '18 Slash. I'm finding the Trek wheels a skosh to stiff for most of my riding here in Bellingham but they work well in the wet months when velocities and tire pressures decrease. The Synthesis wheels have seen a lot more mileage though, and I have to say they're pretty awesome for the riding I do. ~30mm width, some compliance in the front, stiffness out back. I would like to give the Reserves a try, too, and see how they stack up. A regular riding buddy just fit a set to his Capra...
