The Carbon Mafia VIP 50/Disc wheelset combo was a pleasure to ride. They handled everything I threw at them with ease. The wheels gave a feeling of confidence when pushing hard through corners on descents as they held their line. Straight pull spokes paired with a DT Swiss hub help keep the front wheel stiff and running smoothly. In the cross winds the front wheel responded minimally and predictably to any wind gusts that occurred. The disk was stiff and responsive, even when punching over climbs out of the saddle. This was even more evident post ride when there was no clear signs of the rear derailleur rubbing. The extra weight penalty often associated with using a rear clincher disk was unnoticeable. Another nice feature if the disc was the hardness of the out skin. This will help long term with durability and minimize any damage caused by accidental knocks. All in all these wheels were pretty much everything I expect from a performance race wheel.
