Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lightest wheels for the price Very light. 1500gram range outta box. Saved me 500grams off stock wheels. Nice and stiff and handle fine. 15 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Outstanding wheels at a fantastic price I am simply staggered by the performance increase this wheelset has brought to my bike. After only 3 rides of totalling 150 kms, it is clearly noticeable that these wheels are a massive improvement to the stock Mavic Kysrium Equippes that came fitted. My average km/h speed is up by 2 km/h which is fine however all the more impressive when I consider I have only just started riding again following a month off the bike due to knee problems. The other massive advantage these wheels offer are in terms of comfort. They soak up all the bumps and irregularities in the road surface and make my ride superbly comfortable. I will provide more feedback once more Kms are covered. Further, the buying experience offered to me as an Australian customer by CRC was outstanding. The price, feedback, item tracking and prompt delivery was second to none. 10/10 all round. 15 August 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by MY front wheel had a bulge I received my wheels in time from CRC 100% to CRC for that. But I noticed there was small distortion on the front wheel,which I assumed a little truing should correct and did not bother much, and on my rides there was a noticeable difference on the stiffness & control. But each time I braked on the front there was a significant noticeable judder. And I had moved to India due to which, I cannot event get it rectified by CRC. Apart from that, I think the wheels are good. 09 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Value! This upgrade to my bike is very noticeable. The wheel set has made a big difference in the ride and performance of my road bike. Highly recommend these. 05 May 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Best compromise price/weight Don't think you can get better wheels at this price level. Really lightweight, well done Carbon wheels 14 April 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Tanta sostanza Ruote con look tranquillo ma con tanti pregi e sostanza 04 February 2014

Answer: 
Yes; this wheelset comes with a 1.85mm spacer for 11 speed (to be used in conjunction with the 1mm spacer for 10 speed Shimano Cassettes). Removing the 1.85mm spacer allows you to fit a standard 8/9sp cassette.
