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)

Solid Wheelset for a Solid (ahem) Rider

    Comments about Vuelta Corsa HD Road Wheelset:

    When I am skinny (which isn't now) I weigh 225 lbs. I have broken two rear wheels in the last season, and I can knock a wheel out of true, or break a bottom bracket, like most of the clydesdales out there. This set is solid, and fairly good looking. Light, no. A good value? Yes, especially if it can keep me riding the bike and not the truing stand.

      Comments about Vuelta Corsa HD Road Wheelset:

      I like these cartridge bearings, the strong rim and spoke setup. Just make sure you get the longer valve stem tubes when you order the wheels. Even thought I had to adjust a few spokes to true up the rim, it's still a great buy.

        I started riding at 420#, now at 330#. These wheels have given me over 3,000 miles of trouble free riding. That's amazing for a fatty like me. Incredible price for such a quality product.

            At 240lbs, I am not your average cyclist. I was having trouble keeping the OEM wheels on my Giant FCR true.
            I ordered these wheels for myself for Christmas. I have only used them a few times but I can feel the difference in precision in my steering and they are still true.

              Comments about Vuelta Corsa HD Road Wheelset:

              I needed and use these wheels for everyday fast fitness riding. These wheels came out of the box straight and round. The hubs are smooth as glass, and everything seems well finished. The QR's are junk and I replaced them with Shimano skewers. The wheels are heavy as heck, but then, so sm I (215 lbs., not fat, thank you :)) , so I bought these for durability, not weight. I've been building my own wheels for decades, so I was skeptical about these, but the price is way less than all the components for a new set. After a couple of weeks of pounding on them, no problems.

              Comments about Vuelta Corsa HD Road Wheelset:

              My wife and I got into cycling this year for health reasons. We've been loving it. Wanting to get the whole family riding, I decided to build a bike for my High School age son. He's a well fed football defensive lineman, 6'2" and weighing in at around 275 to 280. He's far from being a little boy. I wanted a wheel that he could ride like a teenager rides (hard) and not collapse and put him in the hospital.
              I got these wheels during one of Bike Nashbar's sales and saved even more over an already great price. The wheels look awesome and came straight as an arrow. They are well made and went right on the bike with no fuss.
              Some people say they are heavy, but they are actually a decent weight for the amount of toughness you get.
              When I ride his bike, I notice the bike feels more stable. The extra weight the wheels have do make them less responsive than a light race wheel, but they end up having a more stable ride that carries more momentum. I wouldn't want to race with these wheels, but they might be the perfect wheels for a century or Gran Fondo.
              If you have a need for a tough rugged wheel that is still responsive and rides well, you won't find anything better.

                I put on over 10,000 miles on a set of these with no issues. I am 220lbs and avg. 100+ miles per week. They are starting to show signs of wear so I am looking for my second set.
