Product Description

The carbon clincher wheelset is one that does everything well. We like to tell people that if you need one wheelset for all your rides, the carbon clincher is the set for you. It's light enough to be a climbing wheel, aero enough to use in road races and criteriums. Because of all these great features, the carbon clincher is our most popular wheelset!

Strengths:    Spin up speed, durability and value

Weaknesses:    None to date.

Bottom Line:   
I've had these wheels for roughly 6 months and have close to 1.5k miles on them. I have ridden them through varied road (smooth, chip seal, pot holes) and weather (dry, wet) conditions and they have performed extremely well. They have remained true, spin up incredibly fast and hold speed.

They've pretty much replaced my other wheels (Kysrium SL's) unless it's raining.

In terms of the company, Boyd and his team provide great customer service which is key with any purchase.

If you're looking for a "do it all" set of wheels at a great price point, you should highly consider these wheels.

Strengths:    Spins up fast and stays true. Good value.

Weaknesses:    None so far

Bottom Line:   
I've had these wheels for about a year and a half and have around 2000 miles on them. I use them in the low country of South Carolina where the roads are flat and smooth. I noticed a definite improvement as a result of the aerodynamics without suffering from cross wind problems. I have had no problems. They stay true and I haven't had any broken or bent spokes. The quality seems solid. The ride is typically smooth from carbon. They are good wheels and a nice value. After getting these wheels I was better able to maintain speed and pace lines with faster riders. They are the only wheels I use on this bike now. They are very nice for centuries and longer rides. I haven't used them for any significant climbing, but imagine they would be fine as they are light

Lynskey Endurance Carbon Disc Road Fork

Uh oh. 2012 Synapse Carbon 6 seatpost loose in frame

Just noticed the other day that there is some play in my seatpost where it goes into the frame. This is the teardrop shaped aero carbon post. The two seatpost bolts in the collar are at the proper torque. There is a metal sleeve inside the frame that the seatpost slides into and it seems to be mov ... Read More »

Question to carbon fiber types

Planning on building up a road bike over the winter and was confused by the great variety of finish and frame material. What's the difference between 1k, 2k, 3k, 12k? What's the difference between T500, T600, T700, T800, T1000 & T1100+? PS.: I'm considering chinese frames as I have read quite a lo ... Read More »

Almost got a carbon enima yesterday.

Was tired as I crossed a really rough railway crossing. I should have stood up, but I didn't, and heard a terrible crack/pop sound. Sheered the FSA Kforce in half right at the seat collar. I had to ride the remaining 10kms standing the whole way. I know... "cool story bro".Read More »

Imperfection visible in carbon fiber

Hi, While inspecting this EC90 tubular, I found a really small crack, mainly only visible under a flashlight or camera flash. I don't feel anything with my nail and it's possibly been there for 1000+ miles if I look at the brake pattern. Should I be concerned? :( [ATTACH=CONFIG]300299[/ATTA ... Read More »
