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

  • Robust design accommodates larger riders with a weight limit of up to 300 lbs
  • Hand built to ensure perfect tension and true

Performed great touring

By Ziggy

About Me Avid Cyclist

Comments about Vuelta Corsa HD Road Wheelset:

I purchased these by calling Nashbar and looking for a wheel that would handle the weight of loaded panniers for touring. These were recommended to handle up to 300 lbs, but not necessarily specific for touring. (Their customer service is great by the way). My current wheels were not staying true and round under the added weight - even over just 100 miles. Thought at the price of these I would be giving up performance for strength. To my surprise, they rolled much better than I expected and immediately helped me get rid of the shake in my bike from the extra weight. Just rode the 444 miles of the Natchez Trace with them and am totally satisfied. They stayed true and performed great. They are a little heavier than what I was riding, but really not much. Love em.

Comments about Vuelta Corsa HD Road Wheelset:

These wheels are built with 11 speed hubs with 130 rear spacing so fits as replacement to lightweight wheels on my race bike. My bike's carbon frame takes max 25mm tires, and these fit rims ok. Wheels spin well, but heavy and slow to get up to speed. If this same HD wheelset were built on 8-10 speed hubs with 135 mm spacing, id get them for my old touring bike, too. The rims could probably take 700 x 38mm tire easily. Nashbar should sell them with 135mm rear hubs,as well.

GREAT Rims

Comments about Vuelta Corsa HD Road Wheelset:

Got these as a new set because I destroyed my R501 rim with a Pothole. But I have always Except for my 1 Easton rim had issues of my rims going out of true. My 1 easto rim went 3 years with out issue until the internal hub gear went bad. I bought these and the rolling is perfect and I have had no issues with them. You can feel the stiffness and they are very well built. They are working great with my Tannus 700x23 tires. I want another set as a spare

    Comments about Vuelta Corsa HD Road Wheelset:

    I am at 275 lbs and I have been riding on these wheels for three years. I rode 4002 miles in 2016 and I have not broken even one spoke. I needed to true the rear wheel once in three years! I ride in Rhode Island which has the worst rated roads in the USA and these have held up beyond my wildest expectations! I will buy a new set someday when these wear out.

      Comments about Vuelta Corsa HD Road Wheelset:

      Good wheelset. The spokes of my front wheel were forced into the hub of the rear wheel in the package during shipment. It was badly out of true and round. After truing it up I've put several hundred commuting miles on both wheels and they perform just fine. Probably limited to a 32c tire with this narrow rim.

        Comments about Vuelta Corsa HD Road Wheelset:

        The original rims on my 10 year old Fuji Cross Pro (Alex ACE-19, 32 hole) were slightly out of round and beginning to split at some spoke nipples. So rather than having the taco in the middle of a ride, I thought I would replace them. These Vuelta Corsa HDs are perfect for my 225lb body. And I really don't think they are much heavier than the Alexs.

        Bike Hashing can bring you off road at any time so I need some extra durability.

          I am a heavier cyclist who puts rides about 4,000 miles a year. I was breaking spokes regularly on my old wheels. I have maybe 400 to 500 miles on these new wheels. These are holding up great and have stayed true so far.

          Great wheels for the price. Sure, they are heavier than most, but the roll fine, they are ready to go out of the box and I have never had true them or replace a spoke. I have two sets of them and have ridden a few thousand miles on each without a problem. I'll soon get a third set as winter and training set for my "better" road bike.
