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:

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.

      Comments about Vuelta Corsa HD Road Wheelset:

      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

        Rode these wheels well over 3000 miles in a 6 month period and they are still true. I weigh 250lbs and often cycle with a 20lb backpack. I've hit many potholes and even crashed a once and the wheels are still holding true. Well worth the money.

          Great looking wheels, and so far seem to be very sturdy. Using on my commuter bike. Wheels are great for rough roads, and heavier loads on the bike. Pleased with them after 3 weeks of riding them around 25 miles a day.

            After 4000 miles wheel set is going strong. Not afraid to take them on any type of roads. A must for riders over 200lbs. Great price, great training wheel. Went for the 11x32 10speed setup with this wheel as its on the heavy side with me up steep hills.

            Comments about Vuelta Corsa HD Road Wheelset:

            if you measure every gram that goes on your bike, these are not for you...at 2400gm/set, they are 400+ grams heavier than most of the other wheels under $200. If stronger-than-they-need-to-be, bomb-proof construction is a virtue, these are worth consideration. I have done 100 miles so far on rough rural quasi-paved roads, so not even broken yet, but they ride quite smoothly and needed only a small amount of spoke adjustment to true up (typical per Nashbar cust svc).
            a couple of issues I wasn't expecting:
            1. you need long valve stem tubes, standard too short
            2. freewheel rotation seemed quite rough out of the
            box, Nashbar said this is typical, and will improve with use...which seems to be true, so far.
            3. one wheel had a scratch on the rim, not desirable for a new item, but not a show stopper for me (Nashbar offered to replace it).

            I'll add more after 1000 miles, sooner if issues..
