Great wheels, combined with Rubino Pro tires, slices thru the wind, makes riding on the long flats a breeze. Some said they would have cross wind issues, but that was not so. Changed from Mavic's Zyrium Elites that came on my bike. The one thing I noticed was everytime I hang my bike up, the wheels are so free moving that the valve stem finally comes to rest at the bottom, after a while of pendulum action. It's crazy how easy they spin. Construction quality is great. Love the wheels.
Yes, I recommend this product.
