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

Comments about Vuelta Corsa HD Road Wheelset:

I'm a recreational roadie that logs the occasional century. Most of my rides are gritty urban rides in quasi-industrial areas where the potholes and train tracks are voracious consumers of rims, tires, and spokes. Hovering around 200# now, my lightweight skinny setup was getting hammered and I recently bent an axle. I spotted these bargain wheels and put a set of new Conti gator skins on and I've been notably slower, but my spokes aren't pinging and they roll smooth and true. I don't think I'd race on these, but then, I didn't race before I got them (unless the light had turned yellow...)

    Comments about Vuelta Corsa HD Road Wheelset:

    When I had to replace my hybrid c 700 sized rims I spent more than I wanted but now am so happy that I took the phone sales consultants gentle suggestion. These Vuelta rims are flawless and accepted my old tires perfectly. Though not "Campy" even the free included skewers are very acceptable and the whole package upgraded my ride in several respects.

    One Knock; while I did not want to change to presta stems from my schrader the wheels do seem faster and they look awesome; that is ample compensation for the extra hassle at tire checking /filling time. I would make this upgrade again but stick with schrader valve stems if i could since I am not in competition and just want to pile on the miles.

      I installed them on my Surly Crosscheck which I use for commuting and occasional road rides in inclement weather. The wheels are tough and somewhat aerodynamic. Not a light wheel but beefy and responsive.

          Comments about Vuelta Corsa HD Road Wheelset:

          I kept breaking spokes until I had enough, i'm 220 lbs, I have been riding on these wheels for the last 50 miles or so and they are really solid. 36 spokes, deep rims for strong support. Don't forget to get a minimum of 42 mm stem tube or better a 60 mm one.

          I changed both my wheels and put in new continental tires on both, I noticed a drop in the speed, on the same surface I can't go to the smallest cog as it becomes too difficult, possibly due to the added weight and stiffness of these wheels. The new tires would have contributed also, its not an issue for me as I ride my bike for commuting and recreational activities.

          forgot to mention they also look esthetically great, if you are over 200 pnds and you had enough paying for trueing and changing spokes, these are the wheels for you.

            Good luck!! if you ever need service from Vuelta on these, but these wheels are bullet proof. I have switched to different wheels now but I put about 12,000 miles on HD Corsa Vueltas with - zero problems - in all that time. If you have to change a free wheel hub on the rear you better figure on throwing them in the trash -- no joke.

            The roads around here are full of potholes and also I ride in winter, with icy or snowy conditions. The wheels are heavy, but beside this, they are excellent. They came out of the box ready to use and I already put 3000 miles on them without any issue. They are still as true an arrow. I highly recommend them. In fact, I bought another set for my cyclocross bike.

              This is my 2nd pair. I liked them on my first bike so I got for second. Had to change logos to something else because the black was unnoticeable. Had 1st pair 2yrs....never a problem.

              Comments about Vuelta Corsa HD Road Wheelset:

              These wheels definitely deserve the HD (Heavy Duty) label. After 8000 miles in an urban environment, I replaced the first set of HD wheels which had endured almost daily use with a 200+ pound man in the saddle along with two crashes with these new ones. Looking forward to another season or two without wheel worries.
