by ThuledongfromOk for everydayThese wheel sets came with the bike I bought (Orbea Onix). Love the bike, but the wheel feels heavy which does not help in climbing.

by CarlRidesAgainfromI tore them up multiple timesI am a strong rider and have had to scratch 4 rides since I started using these. All broken spoke issues except the last one I actually tore three spokes from the rear rim and ruined it. Shimano would not replace it. I also had to get the front wheel trued after some average riding. The rims do roll nicely and are good handling rims for down hill descents, a bit heavy on the way up.

by Rando RiderfromBomberWhile they're not the lightest wheels around, they're not obscenely heavy either. Only about 200g more than an Ultegra wheelset. For the price they're a bargain. They hold up to lots of miles and abuse. I have over 10k miles on mine. Some miles on good roads, some miles on terrible roads. All with no problems.

by BoggyfromGood bargainThis is good set of wheels for the money, but you will need a proprietary tool in order to adjust nipples used on these. The size is not specified anywhere on the specifications, and REI does not carry any matching tools at this time. Park Tool Spoke Wrench SW-14 will do the trick.
