Am very happy with this wheelset, but I've only put 10 miles on them, so way too early to say. I'm 73kg male and these are plenty strong for me. Great to know they have serviceable bearings, when that time comes. Happy customer.
Strong but well priced wheelset for using over the winter. Not light but ideal for the local rutted country lanes nearby
Such an awesome price. These were a lovely upgrade to my bike. They roll really nicely, look slick (white) and I can feel the improvements in my ride.
Great value, perfect for winter training - not a race wheel. Efficient delivery as usual no issues.
Upgraded these wheels onto my Giant defy to replace the PR-2 wheels that come factory fitted. I have only had one ride out on them but could definitely notice the difference. These wheels roll a lot smoother and I seemed to gain a little bit of average pace. Would definitely recommend these as a starting out upgrade to any factory fitted wheels. Prompt delivery from Merlin and was able to track my order and change the delivery time to one more convenient.
First purchase from Merlin, and couldn't be more impressed. Extremely fast shipping to the US west coast. Shipped Friday, arrived Monday. The wheels themselves are great. I purchased them as a sturdy winter wheel and I think they'll serve me well.
Excellent wheels, smooth very comfortable ride. Recommended !
A fantastic set of wheels for the price. Upgraded on my Specialized Tarmac from DT Swiss 1.0 and the difference is palpable. Would definitely recommend.
Perfect winter wheels. They are pretty heavy but then they do feel solid and roll very nicely. It's not ideal but a couple spacers allow you to run 9spd smoothly enough if you so wish. Very good service from Merlin as always - fast delivery plus nice and true out of the box.
Great set of wheels. I highly recommend them. Roll well and are well built. I have these on two bikes now. White looks great too, Merlin cycles were by far the cheapest for this product and the wheels were delivered super quick. Seamless transaction.
Best bargain go faster wheel you can buy. Serviceable hubs make maintenance a doddle. Very stiff and after the first 150 miles remain true and tensioned evenly. Spacer provided enables 10spd running ok. Weight is no heavier than planet X A57 wheels. Highly recommended. Great price and speedy delivery as always from Merlin.
An upgrade for my summer bike from RS21's which now sit on my winter bike. A slightly deeper rim but they feel just as comfortable. The white looks cool! The RS21s have been bomb proof so far these are equally as good.
Have bought these wheels for my winter bike to replace wornout Mavic Aksium, they look robust which they need to be. Appearance and finish are good the next few months will tell how good they are.
Great wheels at a fraction of the price they should be! I bought them to replace the Bontrager wheels that came on my Madone 3.5. Although they aren't lighter they appear to have a better build quality and general feel. I bought white with a bit of angst but once on they look great - stand out from the crowd. I've yet to go on a long ride due to the appalling weather but a quick trip out and hey feel great.
Super wheels. No probs at all. Highly recommend this product. Shimano always good quality.
Worked great right out of the box! Was able to use the provided 10 speed spacer to fit my 8 gear Shimano cassette without any problems. Rolls fast and looks great!
Replacement wheels, which run very smoothly out of the box. But for piece of mind I took a look at how much grease was in the bearings. They were greased properly which is not always the case with mass produced products.
Not the lightest pair of wheels but works perfect as my training wheels. Quite stable and rolls good...
Early days on these wheels, but so far extremely impressed. Felt immediate improvement over the stock specialized secteur wheels. Stiff and responsive, fairly light and an absolute bargain from Merlin delivered promptly and in one piece. Doesn't get any better!
I am very happy with the order. No trouble at all. 7 day delivery from order to delivery to Sweden. The Shimano RS31 was over expected quality. Feels very solid and all spokes seem to be evenly tightened. Very rigid and look good. Not light but will be good training wheels.
Excellent set of wheels at an excellent price..(-58%) Bit on the weighty side, but I knew that before buying them. Bought these to replace the EA50's that came as standard on my Cube. And in all honesty, the only difference I can feel personally , is that they don't feel or sound like they're gonna break on me (85kg) Very strong, very smooth = very happy
Don't know if it's the psychological effect but have gained several PB's on Strava in the last week since fitting these wheels. They've replaced a set of Shimano RS00's and they are obviously lighter, but there is much less flex and I can accelerate faster. This had led to me approaching corners much quicker than I have been previously which was initially a little disconcerting. If you want a relatively cheap upgrade that provides an immediate improvement in performance, then I can fully recommend these wheels.
