Carbon deep section wheels vary a lot, my spinergys were 50mm and caught crosswinds like a spinnaker, however the even deeper section zipp 404's are incredible - They just aren't bothered in any way at all by gusts. Brilliant wheels. And blimmin fast too!!! Serviced the freehub body before going out today as it was a bit draggy and causing chain suck, put light oil instead of grease on the pawls and that has it running just perfect!
Re skewers, I have Hope ones which are quite light, the zipp ones look brilliant and work better though. I wouldn't bother about saving a few grams on skewers, rather have the wheel secured and quiet personally!
