Black Series RAC 27 wheels by Tune

by tyceman   March 13, 2014  

Im looking for a new wheelset around the £500 mark. Having read countless reviews and forum threads, I was about to order some Mavic Ksyrium Elite S wheels, but last week Wiggle announced exclusive supply of the Black Series RAC 27 wheels by Tune.

They have a lower weight than the Ksyriums (1450g vs 1520g), a higher spoke count, a higher weight limit, and from what I can see Tune hubs have a great reputation. I am 92kg, so the strength/stiffness and lightness the RAC 27 wheels promise is very attractive.

Any thoughts?

Sounds like you've convinced yourself really

Doubt many people will have any thoughts, considering they've only just come to market they probably haven't sold that many sets yet. We're getting some in to test soon though

Thanks David, sounds like I should hold off for a while then!
