Great Wheelset !
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
First 90 Miles Impression
I'm very pleased with this wheelset. I've taken them out on my first ride for 50 miles and 2,100 ft of elevation gain. The wheels performed great. I was able to do out of the saddle climbing and the rear wheel was stable and well engaged to the power transfer and stability during the climb. Descending was smooth and fast. The crosswind I experienced on that day was about 8-12 mph. There were moments that the rims felt a little pushed by it but what could I expect they are 58/62 profile and you can't have it all. The little twitch from the crosswind is a small price to pay for such great performance. During the same ride, I encountered a couple of miles of roads that were gravel and under repair. No problem the wheels were stable and I push right through. Today I did 40 miles of flat city ridding and again the wheelset performance was excellent! During both rides, I felt that I used less effort to get greater watts. My perception which is proven by my Garmin stats is that I was indeed moving faster. I also felt more stable while doing so.
My Verdict At This Point:
* I highly recommend them, especially for this price point.
* Well built, Quality components, Lightweight
* Nice Clean Look and Finish
* Fast Wheelset and Should Better Your Performance!

Wheelset 58/62 Tubeless
Continental 5000 TL, 28mm (Tubeless setup)
- 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.
