PeteThey are lighter than the stock wheelset on my Specialized Allez. Installed Ultegra 11sp and I've ridden maybe 40 miles on them and so far, no issues. Surprisingly, they feel lighter than the zipp 60 I was looking at. Overall, extremely happy with my purchase.
Murray BLove these wheels. Light weight and spin up to speed well. Are strong and take the bumps well.
KoGreat wheels! The wheels are super smooth and light. These wheels gave me the confidence to tackle corners and climbs much faster than before. I highly recommend these wheels to anybody who is looking to upgrade. The wheels are super stiff but comfortable so I can put a lot of power down. Besides that, Merlincycles is awesome! I received my shipment within 3 days across the country. Best shopping experience by far.
Mr MathewsVery nice wheelset for the money. Light weight yet feels strong. I like having the strength and lightness of carbon combined with the alloy braking surface. I replaced stock Bontrager wheels on my Trek Domane and they really brought my bike to life.
Mr ThorntonGood light wheels, similar to the dura-ace wheels, a fraction heavier but half the price. Fantastic value!
Mr JohnGreat price anyway from Merlin, then an extra 10% is sweet. Great delivery. Wheels true out of the box. Looking forward to losing some weight over my Mavic Aksiums. Also other reviewers on other websites have said how the carbon makes for a more comfy ride, but the alloy braking surface means there's no loss in braking power, as with some carbon wheels. Very happy .
JezzaI bought these primarily as my new 'best' hoops and particularly for a hilly sportive. However, I'm now using them permanently. These are great wheels; they are light, solid, roll well and are relatively quick. They appear hardwearing as they survived a hard fall on their first day out. Given the recent rain, I have appreciated the improved braking that you wouldn't get with full carbon. I have only done a few hundred miles in them so far, so it is too soon to comment on their reliability.
