Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have these set up on Reynolds 58/62 Carbon Disc Wheelset - Tubeless because I did not like the squeal I heard from carbon pads against carbon rims, and need the stopping power for canyon descents and wet conditions. I tested them up to 46mph downhill speed. They perform fantastic and stopped flawlessly!

Familiarity: I've used it several times

I had been shopping carbon wheels for quite some time, and really wanted something deeper than 40mm but still manageable in a crosswind. I came across these wheels and they were exactly what I was looking for. I really liked the fact that they were deeper in the rear wheel (62mm) but slightly shallower and thinner in the front wheel (58mm) but not so much so as to be noticeably asymmetrical. Reynolds clearly did a lot of research to find the optimal size for front and rear wheels without sacrificing crosswind stability. I liked the fact that they were tubeless ready and had a wider profile so I would be able to use a 28mm tire to soften the ride a little on a very stiff bike. I was a little concerned that by going for value I would be sacrificing quality in the hubs, so far the hubs seem excellent. After installing them I let them spin a little, left the room for a minute or so, came back, and they were still spinning. I did not have any difficulty getting the tires over the rims (a complaint I hear often about some carbon wheels). Took them for a ride recently and love how the deep carbon resonates. Had the chance to test them in the wind, and at 35-40mph speed downhill in a direct crosswind, I barely noticed any instability in the front wheel, and I am a light rider who has felt pushed around by the wind before. I love the fact that they are setup for disc brakes because I did not like the squeal I heard from carbon pads against carbon rims, and need the stopping power for canyon descents and wet conditions. I would definitely recommend these wheels.
