Cheap Aero Wheelset for the season

Postby Bendy Ben » 26 Jan 2015 16:41

I've had a pair of these.... for the money - they are reallyt rather good. 1800g for both.

Thinking about a pair for everyday spring summer riding for the kuota.

Mate to be honest

Really rather good. I rode em as commute wheels for the spring - summer and early autum and was impressed. Alu braking surface so no pad issues.

8/10 imho - I bumped kerbs in them, they spin up well, sound pretty good and do what youd expect. I paid £600 for mine 2 seasons ago !

Cant deny they are good value go for the subtle decals and they look great

That's cheap. They're 'only' 200g more than my Reynolds 66 wheels, which had a RRP somewhere in the region of 5x the cost of these...
