Heavy duty riders demand heavy duty hoops – Quest offers an affordable solution with their Como wheel-set.
Quest is the brand of the Harrow-based ‘The bike shop’ that also sells online.
From a distance these wheels look far more expensive than they are, but rim weight is pretty average at 647g and the hubs are basic and could use slight readjustment to the bearings.
There are 20 radial aero stainless spokes for the front, and 24 for the rear built to the 2x pattern. They are very tightly and evenly tensioned throughout and both remained perfectly true throughout testing.
Sadly, they are only compatible with Shimano freehubs but the price includes skewers. At a shade under 2kg they are heavy to race on but will suit very large riders perfectly.
