- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I'm kind of a big guy (read "heavy") so I've always been wary of carbon wheels, but after going on a tour of the Reynolds facility here in Salt Lake City and talking not only to their sales guys, but also their engineers, I decided that it was time.
So far, I am duly impressed. With a rim depth of 46mm, they have enough of a section to be of some aerodynamic assistance, but not so deep that they will be a detriment in cross winds, and are still light enough that they shouldn't be an issue when climbing either.
While intended primarily for use on the road, Reynolds assures me that they'll perform well when racing CX or doing gravel rides as well.
While Reynolds does offer a lifetime warranty against manufacturers defects, one of the other points that sold me is the Reynolds Assurance Program (http://reynoldscycling.com/support/assurance/), which for a nominal fee up front will allow you to replace two wheels, no questions asked, in case something happens that is NOT a manufacturer's defect. In other words, if you forget that your bike is leaning up against your car, and you back up and roll over the wheels smashing them, if you have the RAP in place, Reynolds will replace your wheels ... yep, even stupidity is covered!
