Mr boltonNice solid wheels that I suspect will last for ages. The tyres didn't exactly fall on, but it only took 5 minutes. I love proper tubeless with no tape and other messing about. The only negative that I can see is that the valves don't come apart, so you can't remove the core to fit any sealant. Otherwise I really like this wheelset and at this price they are very much recommended. Lastly, the pictures don't show it but the silvery grey coloured hubs look great!
Mr RobinsonVery Happy with the wheels although on my scales they are a little heavier than Shimano claim, but it’s not worth worrying about. The skewers were not ultegra and were quite heavy, I used the original Giant ones which were lighter. On the whole, excellent wheels at a bargain price.
PocoRonImpressively smooth rolling. Really wasn't sure what to expect but finding that these wheels are certainly up to the Ultegra standard. Well built and just go about the business of working really well and without drama.
NeilThese are the finest wheels bullet proof, This is my third pair, the others were the 6700, identical but not 11 speed, I have used these wheels since 2013, say goodbye to rim tape problems, as there isn't any. Used with Gatorskin and tubes since 2103 and never punctured,
GarethExcellent wheels, similar to the worn out Ultegra 6800s they replaced. Hit a pothole hard the other night when dazzled by oncoming car headlights but no damage. Phew!
David WellsA little heavier than the C24s these replaced. Material and build quality great and TL ready rims are a bonus.
