Customer Reviews

Not quite perfect, but close Review by George

Bought with matching 78mm front, both appeared very good out of the box. Straight and smooth running, and the tyres went on easily. All the required parts were included, as well as spare spokes and tyre levers which is a nice touch. Valve extenders are included but you need your own plumbers tape (obviously).

First ride impressions were also good. They are quite light for such a deep wheel and get up to speed well. They feel stiff and fairly responsive, and certainly roll well. Despite the depth of the front wheel I didn't notice any handling problems in fairly breezy conditions either. Braking is adequate with the supplied pads, though not as good as the aluminium-tracked Shimano's these replaced but I guess that's to be expected. The all-carbon rims make a lovely noise on the road too.

The down side is the skewers, they are on the short side. They will work but the nut often comes free when you loosen it. The levers themselves are too skinny and short to get good leverage and I eventually replaced them with Shimano items. Not a big concern but worth mentioning. I chose these wheels over Zipp 808's for my triathlon bike based on price, and while they may not quite match the finish of the Zipps, for around half the price they're very good. Definitely recommended.
