Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Very nice
I got these as my 2009 add wheelset was dying... I mounted them with 2.5 tubeless High Rollers and I must say the weight saving compared to the old add wheelset is quite something!
I have only tried them once since I only got them a week ago, and as it was my first ride of the year so I can't really give you an objective comparison with other wheelsets... But they definitely feel good and stiff! Mounting tubeless tires on them is super easy, the wheels come with valves and sealant so all you need is tires and pump to get started! Important: use a bit of soapy water to make sure the tire gets seated properly on the rim! I did not need a compressor to inflate the tires, a basic hand pump did the job.
If you really care about the looks, beware, the hub looks doesn't look nearly as goldy as on the picture! It's a lot closer to silver, but still looks very nice!
The only concern I have: what will happen if I destroy a rim, as the rims have 28 holes (rare) and are not sold individually? Anyway that's a problem for future me...
