Rated 5 out of 5 by exellent produit super jantes belle esthetique sur le velo bonne qualite pour le prix tres content de l achat je recommande 07 October 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great wheels! I had the shimano RS-10, now I think move one step ahead, smooth running, and I have the feeling that I am moving a little bit faster!! 04 October 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good entry level or training wheels good looking set of wheels not bad for recreational riding or training purposes. Excellent price for a budget build 27 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value wheel Was at first a bit concerned about the weight being about 350gm more than the wheelset they were replacing but honestly haven't noticed a negative impact, even on a 16km climb at the end of an 85km ride. Hubs are nice and smooth, tight quality spokes, feels like a hardy wheel. If you're a racer and you really think the weight will make a difference to you then for almost double go the Ultegra 6800 wheelset, but for this money the RS31's are great value and look great. 26 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value These wheels look great and were exceptional value for money 08 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 Muito boa. Leve, resistente, bonita Comprei esse conjunto para substituir as rodas originais da minha Caloi Sprint 20. Ficou perfeita na bike, deu mais estabilidade e velocidade a pedalada. Recomendo. 22 January 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Excellent value Great wheels for the price. Sure, there's much better wheels out there, but nothing comes close at this price. Perfect for my commuter/rain/training bike. 07 December 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great wheels for the price I got these to replace the stock 32 spoke radial & 3 cross Alex Rims with 105 hubs on my road bike after I blew up a few spokes on the ride home. The difference in quality between them in impressive, I got an instant 3km/h boost in my average speed to work and they were absolutely silent. The wheels arrived promptly, well boxed and true (checked them through a truing stand) and I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of these wheels, so I'd recommend them. 26 November 2013

I'm 180 pound rider and I found these wheels to be reliable for asphalt roads. But I changed them to Mavic Aksium wheels for gravel and ground roads.

Answer: 
I've ridden them over 500km at 200lbs (90kg) + backpack and they still run true with no problems. I've even given them a few pinch flats running them into pavements with no ill-effects on the rims.

Answer: 
I'm 90kg (200lbs) and I've been riding these for about 400km now, no problems here. I'm not particularly nice to my wheels either and have had some pinch flats from riding them into corners & pavements, wheels are still perfectly true & running well.

Answer: 
This wheel is 8, 9, 10 and 11-speed compatible which is in relation to the number of sprockets on the cassette.

A bike referred to as 20-speed will have a 10-speed cassette on the rear wheel and a Double Chainset; effectively creating 20 available gears.

Answers

Answer: 
It is not recommended to use wide tires with road wheels, but my experience shows there's no problem to use CX tires up to 35 mm. What is about your size... I use just now winter Suomi tire (42mm) on the road wheel for commuting and it works ok, but can't use WTB tire of the same size on the same wheel. So it seems to me, only experience can show is these wheels suitable for your tires or not. Of course, it depends from the type of riding too.
