Super light for the price and extras
- I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
This wheel is a great bargain for a light, strong wheel suitable for road or gravel. The weight is on the light side for gravel and if you can find it for $400 you can't really beat this for the price. It comes with skewers and axle adapters for various configurations but it is setup stock for a 12 mm thru axle. The tubeless works fine, but there are very minimal instructions with this wheelset both in the box and online. At times it seems to rely on graphical images instead of words which can be confusing. For example, to replace the thru axle with the QR pieces I'm pretty sure you need 2 12 mm hex wrenches which aren't a commonly used tool so I have that on order. The other pieces just press on but it definitely seems like the default axle pieces are threaded on. There is no documentation of this process anywhere. And if you try to pull them off with pliers you'll likely scratch up the soft aluminum. So don't do that, even with a cloth. The freehub shows a warning image indicating that the largest cogs must be attached to a carrier since the aluminum is soft and will deform if you use loose cogs. Again, this would be more clearly communicated with words. These types of things are probably obvious to shop techs but for those with below average knowledge of bikes will find this a bit annoying when you consider the average Shimano part historically comes with multiple useless pamphlets with about 100 translations of instructions. Setting up tubeless was pretty straightforward but again, nobody seems to offer basic documentation and it's been a few years since my last tubeless install so the first wheel was a mess because I didn't seat the tire before injecting the sealant. Also, the rim tape is not sticky so you'll want to make sure the hole is lined up perfectly or the sealant will escape underneath the tape and out the spoke holes. Due to the low spoke count, beefy rim, and asymmetric lacing I found this wheel difficult to true as it had a slight hop in the front out of the box and I was concerned about messing with the spoke tension of a front wheel. The other set that came with my bike were a bit more true so it's probably just a QC issue. All in all, a solid, light wheel at a bargain price and very versatile and adaptable for 10-11 speed, disc, thru-axle, QR, etc. with all of the pieces (but not the tool) you need. If you get the Centerlock version it also comes with lockrings.

Hello, Is this wheel-set tubeless as described on Vision's website? Also, does this wheel-set come with end caps to convert the QR to 12mm thru axle? Thanks!

Hey Clinton, Great questions, to start yes this is a tubeless ready wheel set. Sadly, though, this wheelset is not convertible from its QR option. These hubs are QR both front and rear without interchangeable end caps - 9mm QR (front), 130mm QR (rear). If you have any additional questions, please feel free to email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
