Strengths:    Look great on my 2007 LeMond Zurich! Definite increase in speed on flats to rolling terrain. Perceived effort on rides seems to be reduced, as the aero design really assists in cutting through the air. I believe in these wheels!

Weaknesses:    Not great for long climbs or sprints. Truing is a bother, in that the adjustments are made within the wheel, meaning you have to remove the tire, tube and tape. unlike the Neuvations, I've had to true these twice in three months. Albeit, I am a heavier rider (225) and Ohio roads can be rough in this present economy. Crosswinds on a downhill can be scary if you're not prepared!

Bottom Line:   
Bought these to compliment a pair of Neuvation R28's, and to try to improve my results in local TT's. They have certainly done the latter, improving my max speed by 2.7MPH, and decreasing my time in a 10 mile TT by 1:07. They feel fast in the flats and downhill. However, they are a bit heavy and not as reactive as the Neuvations in climbs and sprints.

Strengths:    when I could not find a spinergy dealer in Michigan I called the company and they immediately had me send the wheels to them and fixed them and returned them to me free of charge. I am ready for the new season! Thanks Spinergy

Weaknesses:    No current dealers in Michigan

Bottom Line:   
Very happy with these wheels -have noticed a 2-3 mph increase. Wear extremely well and when I needed service -the Spinergy company was outstanding

Strengths:    The spinergy service department is super. When we could not find a local bike shop that would help us (none had worked on spinergy wheels before) a call to Spinergery resulted in our sending the wheels to them and free service and return. We are ready for the coming season! Thanks Spinergy!

Weaknesses:    We could not find a local dealer in Michigan at this time - but the company certainly stands behind their product and helped us our to more than our satisfaction.

Bottom Line:   
My wife and I have found our Spinergy wheels to live up to all they are advertised to be. Not only have our wheels increased our rpm, but the Spinergy service really blew us out of the water.

Strengths:    Fast, stiff, cool white only graphics.

Weaknesses:    heavier that advertised. Spotty carbon finish. Spokes aren't bladed, but do they need to be?

Bottom Line:   
I purchased these wheels because at the time, I couldn't find any PBO wheels for my budget. So I went for the SS. I was not all that impressed until I rode them. What a difference! They spin up faster and are stiffer than my Mavic krysium elites. The speed difference is at least 2mph. I can sprint over 30 easily and hold it for much longer. The aero advantage is very pronounced. look to be bulletproof. I would highly recommend them. Next time, PBO spokes

Looking for feedback on Spinergy Stealth SS's

Hello - I've checked out the review section and found only 3 positive reviews on this wheelset. This would be the 2008 45mm carbon model with standard spokes (not fiber). I'm wondering if anyone else has experience with them? I'm 6'2 220, but not hard on wheels and ride on good surfaces. I ... Read More »

Gutting a Stealth SS rear wheel

So, I have a new set of Stealth SS wheels on order from Spinergy on crash replacement for some old Spox wheels I inherited. I already have a set of HED Stingers so I really don't need another pair of deep dish wheels, but I really hate the idea of the fiber spokes so I ordered the SS wheelset ins ... Read More »
