Bought these to replace a set of older RS10 wheels, at same time as upgrading to 11speed on my winter bike. Work just as well as those wheels, I expect no issue on these as a set of inexpensive winter wheels.
These seem to be great entry-level wheels for the money. I bought them to have a spare wheelset and to use the rear wheel as a trainer wheel with my KICKR SNAP. The wheels were true right out of the box and so far I've had no issues.
I've bought these as my training wheels. So far, I'm very pleased with them. Although heavy, these wheels are very solidly built and feel very robust on the road. Very good price also. Hats off for Merlin too. Great customer support, very fast shipping and the aforementioned price.
A little heavy, but a great, sturdy wheelset for the price.
The wheels came out of the box true and ready. I have put about 50 miles on them and they are an absolute delight. They pick up speed pretty well, and definitely don't feel fragile on rougher roads. The hub is quiet and fits my Ultegra 11 spd cassette just fine. For the price, these wheels cannot be beat.
Nice wheelset, not the lightest but at this price very good. Usual shimano build quality, roll nicely.
