Very light top of the range carbon tubular wheel set that will be a fantastic performance upgrade and weight saver on any road bike.
I will be very sad to see these wheels go as they really are stunning but a new wheel sponsor forces the sale. It would be a waste to have them sitting in the garage not getting used.
These wheels are in great condition. Little use. Run smooth and straight. They have been used a few times for good quality hilly courses.
Therefore they do show some signs of wear. To be exact, there is light rubbing off of the white paint in places on the white spokes but this is normal with this colour of spoke. The only other thing to note is that 3 rear drive side spokes are very slightly kinked and marked where the rear derailleur may have touched the spokes. I was not even aware of this until I removed the cassette as it is hardly noticeable and does not affect the wheel at all. I have tried to show this in the pictures. If you really wanted to replace these spokes it would only cost about £2 a spoke but I personally would not bother.
Tubular tyres were fitted with tape only as can be seen in the pictures and are ready for new tyres.
These wheels come with a shimano and an extra campagnolo freehub to fit the DT Swiss hub.
Also included is a ROVAL double padded wheelbag and the User manuals.
