Our review

Good looking, colour option budget wheels, but heavy and soft under pressure

Miche are an often overlooked but longstanding component company. The ability to choose white, black or red rims for the same price adds cosmetic appeal and a broad groove in the centre monitors wear over time.

It’ll need checking for imbedded grit, though, and the joint is obvious. Twenty blade-to-round black spokes are laced radial front, three-cross rear with paired rim insertion at the back. The offside rear was slack all round, which meant a spongy feel when kicking or cornering hard.

Weight is high and responsiveness low, despite an alloy freehub body with deep scalloping. The freehub cartridge bearing is unshrouded, so check the cassette lockring for any corrosion.
