Vuelta Corsa Carbon 50 LE Wheelset
If you've got a brand-new 11-speed groupset and are hankering for some speedy new wheels, then you need the Vuelta Corsa Carbon 50 LE wheelset. Why go carbon? That's easy. Carbon wheels are stiff, they're light and they're fast. But here's where the Vuelta Corsa Carbon stands apart: what most carbon wheels don't always do well is brake in some road conditions. That's why Vuelta introduced the Corsa Carbon 50 LE road bike wheelset. It's still a carbon rim, but has a bonded alloy brake track for improved stopping performance in the rain, on extreme downhills, and a few other situation where aluminum just does a little better than carbon. The hub is Shimano/SRAM 11-speed ready, and includes a spacer for Shimano 8/9/10-speed cassettes.
NOTE: Only use carbon-specific brake pads (included) with these rims. While the brake track is alloy, it is bonded directly to carbon which can still build up heat if regular brake pads are used.
  • Handbuilt alloy carbon-alloy wheelset is stiff, lightweight and responsive
  • Super high modulus, impact resistant monocoque rim design delivers excellent power transmission with minimal flex
  • 50mm deep-V rim gives you an aero advantage when the wind is blowing in the wrong direction
  • Alloy clincher brake track delivers superior braking performance and a longer road life
  • Lightweight quick-release skewers help get these wheels down to race weight
  • Ultra lightweight wheel set at only 2039g for a pair
  • Full set of Carbon-Specific brake pads included (Shimano compatible inserts)
  • Shimano/SRAM 11-speed ready, spacer included for vintage 9/10-speed systems

Comments about Vuelta Corsa Carbon 50 LE Wheelset:

Bought this wheelset to replace an all carbon Easton wheelset that cracked when changing a tire. This wheelset although slightly heavier than the Easton much sturdier with the solid breaking of the aluminum rims.

Think with the recessed spoke nuts and deeper dish over the 35mm Eastons these wheels actually faster than the Eastons once you get them rolling.

Overall compared to the equivalent carbon wheelset costing $2,000 or more these Vuelta's offer very good value....
