Vuelta Corsa HD Road Wheelset
If breaking spokes or fighting to keep wheels in true have ever been an issue with your road wheels then the Vuelta Corsa HD Road Wheelset are definitely the hoops for you. Everything about them oozes strength and confidence so they're perfect for heavy training, the rigors of cyclocross, touring or commuting, or if you're simply a bigger rider who puts plenty of stress on wheels through normal riding. They've got a stout 30mm-deep aluminum rim that's built to last plus you couldn't ask for a stronger spoke set-up than 36 straight gauge spokes per wheel laced in a 3-cross pattern. The CNC-machined brake track provides excellent all-weather performance while the hubs spin on sealed cartridge bearings so they get up to speed quickly and roll smoothly. For the ultimate in compatibility this wheelset is 11-speed Shimano/SRAM ready, with an included 8/9/10-speed spacer for older cassettes so the odds are it will seamlessly work with your current drivetrain. Last but not least, there's no robot construction here as these wheels are lovingly built by hand for perfect tension and true.
  • 30mm medium-V alloy pinned rim is both strong and aerodynamic
  • CNC-machined brake walls provide responsive, precise braking performance
  • 36 14-gauge stainless spokes laced 3-cross creates a super-strong wheel
  • Sealed cartridge bearings spin fast and roll smooth
  • Robust design accommodates larger riders with a weight limit of up to 300 lbs
  • Hand built to ensure perfect tension and true
  • Shimano/SRAM 11-speed compatible (w/ spacer for 8/9/10-speed cassettes)

      Comments about Vuelta Corsa HD Road Wheelset:

      I'm a heavy guy (300+) getting back into cycling. Stock wheels aren't strong enough and won't hold up for a guy like me. I was breaking spokes on a regular basis. These wheels have held up well so far. They're very strong solid wheels. Nothing bad to say about them, they keep me in the game.

      I'm a big dude @ 6'4" / 290 and have been looking for a solid, bullet proof wheel for some time. Read about these on a few boards and at the price offered here, had to pull the trigger.
      The HD's mounted easily, were true out of the box and have stayed so on the 100 miles plus I've put on them. They've felt solid on out saddle, lung crushing climbs and roll fast and smooth. Couldn't have asked for more. Very happy so far.

        Comments about Vuelta Corsa HD Road Wheelset:

        You don't have too spend big bucks on custom wheels. These wheels are rated for 300 lbs. My wheels that came on my bike were out of true. immediately. And after a couple of time truing them decided to try these when Nashbar had them on sale. They Came out of the box true and after a few hundred miles they are still true today. I can't speak for the longevity yet but I see no reason that they won't last for a long time if taken care of. Not the lightest wheels by any means but weren't that much heavier than the stock wheels that came on the bike. I would recommend these wheels to any one that commutes, carries any kind of weight or are on the heavy side and don't want too spend the money to have custom wheels made.

        6'9" 260 pound Hillbilly : I started out with my stock trek wheels that constantly needed to be trued, The Rear was of course the worst , I have around 8000 mi on my first set before i needed a hub replacement ( the GUTS ) havnt Broke a Spoke Yet. Weight Doesnt matter (YOU STILL GOTTA PEDAL IT!!!) I would rather be 100 miles out on a set of HD's than a cute little set of lite wheels that may leave me STRANDED.

        Comments about Vuelta Corsa HD Road Wheelset:

        I'm a big guy (6'3", 280lbs.). These wheels are very sturdy, they stay true, and the are a great value! I use them mainly for training and fitness. The have stayed true, even with my weight. They are not lightweight by any means, but I'm not concerned with that for my use. These are not racing wheels, but they will serve you well for training, commuting, etc.
        If you use a coupon code or find a good sale at Nashbar, you can get these for less than $130 total. You won't find a better wheelset for the price!

        Great Road Wheels for a big guy

          Comments about Vuelta Corsa HD Road Wheelset:

          These are by far the best road wheels I have found in terms of durability. I ride alot of city and paved bike trails with my road bike and these stand up to the potholes and ruts. I weigh about 250 and am obviously rough on wheels. These needed truing about 1/4 as much as other sets I've had. They also look really sharp. If you are looking for a tough set of wheels for your 700c bike, you can't beat the durability and price of the HDs. My only problem is you can't buy just one as a replacement. My front wheel got hit by a truck and broke the hub, but still rode for another 2 months before it really started to sway. Other than that, Highly recommend!

            Front wheel immediately came out of true, but has been great ever since. These bomb proof wheels provide a stable ride for this 275lb rider.

            After going through two wheel sets from breaking spokes from riding terrible roads and being 250 lbs I was set on getting these wheels rather than paying $450/wheel for a built for you wheel.
            Couldn't be happier with these wheels. They feel bomb proof, don't even wobble and glide down the road. Buy these if you not a typical biker ( Over 150 lbs)

              Fantastic wheels. I'm a heavy rider (225lbs) and these wheels really hold up very well. This is my second set - I got 13,700 miles out the first set when I started breaking spokes. I ride for exercise and these wheels are smooth and sturdy.
              Highly recommend
