Strengths:    Great look and excellent technology in the PBO spokes. Plus the service at Spinergy is top notch!

Weaknesses:    None that I can tell

Bottom Line:   
Although the wheels are excellent and light weight, cool technology in the spokes, and great looking, the greatest part is the service I received for Joe in the service department. Immediate call back and took care of my needs right away. Can't ask for much More

Strengths:    Comfort, durability, easily serviced, disco looks with the yellow PBO spokes, and Spinergy Customer support.

Weaknesses:    None that I can think of.

Bottom Line:   
I first bought these wheels in 2005 or 2006. Mine are built with the Corima tubular rim, and yellow PBO spokes. Today in 2017, these are some of the best wheels I've owned, including several Mavic sets, Zipp, HED, Oval, Campagnolo. I pretty much used these as a race set, where they held up nicely in my crit-focused style of racing. Also, I traveled a bit with them, in a soft shell bike bag between SF and Austin, and the wheels held up fine flying Southwest. Add to that they are super light , accelerating fast, and also amazingly comfortable. Mind you, I'm big sprinter type and have broken a share of carbon and aluminum parts.

So-- now I just want to ride them as a daily ride. I swapped out a Campy cassette body, and promptly let them sit on the coffee table too long half assembled, and well, wifey wanted to tidy up and I lost a couple parts. Doh, bad husband! This is where Customer Support saves the day! Joe is superb-- one hardly gets personal support these days. With a simple number, he knew exactly what I was looking for.

Buy a set of these wheels!

Strengths:    Very light weight, the ride is incomparable to and other 45mm, little to no wheel flex under power.

Weaknesses:    None as of now and have over 600mi with no issues.

Bottom Line:   
Use the cork brake pads, fit and finish is nice, the Carbon fibre is Corima, made in France a very reputable company, well worth the investment, I abuse my wheels and so far so good, What pothole?? Did not even feel it..go Pbo spokes!!!!! They are 22.6mm wide, which fits 25mm tires perfectly, they weigh in at 1550g, Their customer service Is very personal and you can't find that out there anymore,, thanks Joe and Rene

Strengths:    Great value for a full carbon wheelset. The PBO fiber spokes reduces road vibrations and greatly increases ride quality (compared to my Zipp 606 setup). The company also offers some customization on the color of the spokes if needed. Competitive customer service and hassle free warranty claims by Spinergy master wheel builder Joe D.

Weaknesses:    Spinergy wheels are only sold in pairs. Consumer do not have the option to buy just one wheel in stores. Single wheel purchase can only be done directly from Spinergy or an authorized distributor.

Bottom Line:   
Highly recommended for those looking for ways to improve performance and ride quality. I love how the wheels feel end up buying 2 more Spinergy wheel sets (Xaero FCC and Xaero Lite) for my other road bikes. Overall, a good full carbon wheel upgrade and investment that offers a very soft ride. You'll have to ride one to appreciate.

Strengths:    Durable, spins well, excellent on rough roads, Looks, Spinergy
service reputation is only beaten by reality.

Weaknesses:    Light for the depth of the rim but heavy in comparison to other wheelsets - not an issue for me. Changing tires can be more difficult than other wheelsets.

Bottom Line:   
Several times over the past couple of years I have had questions and Spinergy always responds quickly and with the information I need. I bought my first set in 2010 and have put about 10,000 miles on the set. As someone else mentioned Joe @ Spinergy is the best in customer service. Of all my wheelsets (two sets of Bontrager Race X Lites, Rolf Vigor, and Mavic Ksyrium SSC SL, I have the most confidence in my Spinergy's. They are as light or lighter than all of the wheelsets except for the Rolfs and roll very well while riding smoother than any other. In the wind the profile allows them to get pushed around some but it isn't that bad. It you have to change a tire expect it to be more difficult than a regular wheelset since the rims seem to be a little bit large but they are thick giving me that bomb proof feeling which is more important that a quick tire change for me.
