BUY THEM NOW

PostedSeptember 7, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Looks great
I bought these at £620 and see that they have now gone up a bit more. If you look around the internet, others are selling these at £900. The hubs alone are worth over £500. I came from a pair of easton ea90slx. These themselves were pretty sharp but in my opinion poorly made and a little flexible, only really good for climbing, didn't hold speed particularly well. These however are unbelievable, you can't judge them until you've done around 200km and they are bedded in. Yes the 28 spoke count is a little high but the pay off is incredible rigidity and unbelievable ride quality. I ride a BMC Pro Machine with campy record groupset. I've ridden a lot of wheelsets, I have never known a ride quality like this, and they hold their speed like a pair of deep sections. Maybe the only slight flaw is that they aren't as electric up the hills as the easton's but there really isn't that much difference. At this price point there are no other wheels to consider. If you get these built by a wheel builder I had a quote of £950. The other plus is that when the rims wear down, you can just get another solid pair of wheels build on these incredible hubs.

Great value wheelset!

PostedAugust 19, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Lightweight
Cons: packaging could be better
This wheelset feels and sounds great on the road. The hub requires some breaking in to get the Angry Bee sound. Overall great value from Evans. I wished the package came with a wheelset bag or wrapped up.
The box was received in pretty rough condition, but wheelset survived the shipping.
