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

Carbon Frame Damage

I am trying to determine if I need worry about some frame damage on the seatstay near the rear dropout on a 3-year-old Raleigh RXC carbon cyclocross frame. Anyone know how the aluminum dropout is attached to the carbon stay and if the damage shown in the pictures is or isn't a problem? I am assuming ... Read More »

Differences in carbon layups/manufacturing

I have been doing a lot of research on road bikes and have come across a confusing aspect of the carbon frame world. Several prominent brands have several different carbon frame types and others appear to only have one. Trek: 300, 400 , 500 series, etc Specialized: FACT 8r, 9r, 11r, etc Cervelo: se ... Read More »

New carbon frame with older components (crankset question)

I'm seriously considering picking up a carbon frame and transferring my 9-speed DA7700 group. The new frame has a 68mm English threaded BB, so I'll need to choose a new BB and crank. I've been looking at Shimano cranks, wanting to stay with a 53/39 130 bcd. With the new proprietary Shimano 4-bolt p ... Read More »

Done (I think) with Look Keoblade Carbon Pedals...

The darn squeaking noise is driving me nuts. I've tried many of the suggested tips on how to potentially quiet them down, but none have really worked or lasted. I've had my local mechanic confirm that the squeak was coming from the pedals and not anything else. Although they worked fine initially an ... Read More »
