Strengths:    These are light, roll very well and the most important bit, a 23mm width, so they are also comfortable and hndle really well with a wider footprint.

Weaknesses:    Not high on bling if that's your thing.

Bottom Line:   
I have had these for about 18 months and they haven't missed a beat. Set up on a CAAD10, they have proven nice to ride and with the width, really comfortable. I run 23 or 25mm Schwalbe ultermo's around 90-95psi. I'm 74kg. As a result they grip well and ride very smooth. I've had Mavic Kysirium's, Open pro's, custom noibium wheels, DT Swiss Mon Casserols (Terrible) and so far these are my favourites. CX Ray spokes and no brand hubs, they weigh 1400grams. Durability appears pretty good, no issues and have hit a few big potholes, ridden gravel and bike paths at times. They are stiff enough that I haven't experienced brake rub when stomping it or cornering hard.
The only negative is they not high on bling, and so I've never seen anyone out there with them, which is surprising given their sub $800 Aus price. At this pice point there's not too many wheels with this combo of weight and performance.
Go get some I say.

Velocity A23 Pro Build Wheelset

Wondering if anyone has tried these? Are their house brand hubs any good? Do they come in pretty close to their 1400g claimed weight? Considering either buying this complete wheelset or picking up some a23 rims & lacing up my own set with some DT hubs. Thanks for any repliesRead More »
