The PR 1600 SPLINE 32 is characterized by its super stiff and lightweight medium profile aluminium rim. Stiffness is generated via the big cross-section and thanks to the 18mm internal width and the tubeless ready design, it is ideally equipped for the use of modern road bike tyres. The PR 1600 SPLINE 32 is a wheel that excels on any terrain. It transfers every bit of energy into forward momentum and takes every corner with Swiss precision.
Great Wheels, have done about 4.500km and they still run true and easy, like the day I got them. I fitted Hutchinson Fusion Performance tubeless which went on with the usual "bang" using an "Airshot" bottle. Tyres are sitting good in the rim. The wheels are extremely well balanced. The only thing is they left a spoke nipple in the front wheel which comes loose sometimes on the rough New Zealand roads and disrupt those "stealth wheels". It took about 3 to 4 days to arrive in Auckland (about half the world around) and another week to get to Dunedin (about 1.5h by air), due to slow system at customs. Good tracking, and of course great service from Merlin Cycles.
These wheels are strong, stiff, fairly light and look great too. No problems flexing. Rear spoke nipples started making clicking noises after a while, so I lightly lubed them with silicon lube. All silent now.
Well built solid wheels. No tubeless nightmares with these wheels. Instant inflation with floor pump. I used Schwalbe tubeless Pro One. Definitely an upgrade from my RS10.
Nice hubs spin forever and quiet freehub. Decent overall weight and spin up nicely. Rims are semi deep and decent width for 23 or 25mm tyres. My only criticism is that bracing angle on rear wheel could be better, non drive side should be further outboard. Some brake rub when cranking or cornering hard, but I am 100kgs. Front wheel has great bracing angle, and 20 spokes so is very solid.
Great set of aero alloy wheels. Really quiet and smooth free hub
Great wheels for the money, good depth and feel relatively stiff the rim is also a decent width works perfectly with a 25mm
Silky smooth hubs and nice wide rims, feel pretty rugged and I'm hoping they survive the millions of pot holes that we have to contend with these days. Only negatives, to say the rims are pretty wide it was a battle getting GP4000s 25mm on and the DT Swiss QR skewers are not to everyone's fancy. Otherwise if you want some solid training wheels these could be your ticket.
