Weighty, bombproof hoops that did later need some attention
Skip to view product specifications

Hitting the scales at well over 2kg for the pair, these are never going to give you stunning acceleration and you do notice that weight when you’re up on the hills.

They arrived reasonably true and the spokes – 20 radial pattern aero spokes up front and 24 2-cross at the rear – were tensioned perfectly. Over time, though, the spoke tension deteriorated and the 30mm deep rims disappointingly went significantly out of true. 

That said, leaning them over hard didn’t result in too much flex and we have another set we’ve been running on and off for over a year now without the need for a single turn of the spoke key.

The cup-and-cone bearings were adjusted well to begin with but the rear one did need some attention by the end of the test period. For the cash, though, they’re pretty reasonable performers, especially for heavy duty riders.

They’re available with a Campag freehub for £10 extra, and weigh 920g (front) and 1,206g (rear).
