    Yes, that is a good tri and time trial wheel.

    Note that you need sew-up to glue onto the rims and it's usually a good idea to carry an extra tire with you. Also you need special brake pads, like all cork, if the wheel braking surface is carbon fiber. These are "game day" wheels and not for training or everyday riding.

    Yes they use the deep V rims like that in time trials and triathlons.
