Workhorse wheels that you shouldn’t need to tinker with
Skip to view product specifications

FSA calls these ‘incredibly strong’. They do use plain gauge spokes (though they’re listed with bladed spokes) and the spokes are highly and consistently tensioned, so it’s a justified claim. There’s a hint of roughness in the non-cartridge bearing front hub and also a certain lifelessness in road feel from both front and rear, which we’d put down to rim weight and their heavy-duty build.

The rear wheel arrived with a small lateral wobble (just over 0.5mm), which testing didn’t exacerbate. There’s a subtle wear indicator in the rim. In a nutshell: workhorse wheels that you shouldn’t need to tinker with.
