Great addition to the bike though bit heavy

Posted31 July 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Looks great
Cons: Heavy
The wheels do looks great on the bike and make for a very smooth ride.
I haven't raced with them yet.
My only down side is they make the bike feel a bit heavier even when it's not windy.

Not super light but ride great and look awesome!

Posted20 May 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Looks great
These may not be as light as some of the competion but the quality is excellent and they roll sweet. Definitely add speed over non-aero wheels and look amazing! Feel solid and the aluminium braking surface make buying pads much easier.

Great!

Posted14 December 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
I got those last month, and i must say they are both great looking and fast! I had mavic aksiums previously and getting the sl's made the bike lighter faster and so much better looking! (I ride team colour cannondale 105 2012)
I am using the wheels for every day riding and so far are bulletproof and certainly what is very pleasing and noticeable is their awesome sound!

Good investment

Posted16 April 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Looks great
I found these mavic wheels to be a good investment as they made the bike quicker by at least 5 minutes over a 25 mile timed regular circuit. This is compared to the original shimano R500 wheels. Being moderate aero wheels, the faster you go the better the advantage, so not as much difference uphills. Plus they look good!

Fast and Beautiful

Posted13 January 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Lightweight, Looks great, fast
I was initially a bit skeptical about the benefits of aero wheels, but I'm happy to say I'm now a convert. These look the absolute business on a bike and are really lightweight and strong. You won't notice any difference until you get over 15mph then they just roll and roll. Add to that they also make a really sweet humming noise at speed. I also noticed my climbing was easier, probably not due to the weight (as these are NOT a lightweight climbing wheelset) but the additional rigidity helped loads in getting the power down. I have experienced the dreaded Aero wind gust effect, where your front end wobbles a bit when it's gusty, but it's really not as bad as some say, and when up to speed (say 20mph) it makes little difference if any. Would I recommend these... absolutely yes!!!
