    Comments about Vuelta Corsa SLR Road Wheelset:

    Tried 2 different sets of these and they both would not stay true even after bike shop retrueded. This is due to my weight (230lbs). If you are <180lbs riding on good roads don't hesitate, you will not find better wheels for the money.180-200lbs proceed cautiously. Over 210lbs don't waste your time. I am now using the Corsa Lites and they are holding up better than the SLRs even though they are a lower spoke count.

      Comments about Vuelta Corsa SLR Road Wheelset:

      Seem like great wheels for the price, however, I really am disappointed with the new look. I thought I was getting the set with the big, bold white and red lettering on the side walls, which would have looked really cool on my black/red Giant Defy. Instead the new decals are barely readable and just plain look dull/cheap. But hey, they spin...

        Comments about Vuelta Corsa SLR Road Wheelset:

        After a year of use these wheels have impressed me. I have put well over 2000 miles on them and they have worked flawlessly. I bought them to replace my stock Xero XSR-3's which weighed about 2000-2100 grams. I have never weighed the Corsa SLR's but they are very noticeably lighter than the Xero's. In fact, I was nervous when I felt how light they were in my hands, I questioned there durability. From the first mile after putting them on I could tell a substantial difference in rotational weight vs. my old wheelset. The Corsa SLR's really are ultralight. I ride rough, pot-holed, messed up city streets as a norm but these wheels have taken the abuse without ANY truing or any care of any kind. I run Gatorskin fold-able 25's and have never had a flat with the set-up either. Right now they are true, the bearings are butter smooth, and ready to go for years I hope. I highly recommend these wheels.

        Comments about Vuelta Corsa SLR Road Wheelset:

        I bought a returned set about a year ago. I must say I love the weight and how free they spin and they made a big difference to my rolling resistance when I started using them. the only issue I've had is twice when changing tires, the allow spoke nipples have broken on the front wheel. I've had my LBS replace the spoke and re-true the wheel at $20 a pop. Now I'm hearing some rattling inside the rim from metal shavings coming loose. Looks like the corners of the rim hole punch-outs? Not sure. No problems with the rear wheel. Overall, very nice wheels for the price but be prepared for some ongoing maintenance.

          I had been looking for a wheel set to replace 16 year old wheels on my Litespeed Classic and found a deal offered on Halloween. The wheel set is light, strong, and well rated. Build quality is perfect.

            The Vuelta Rims were a gift from the Red Baron. They are exactly what I expected from Vuelta because they are built strong and have exceptional free-wheel speed. Hubs are also built very well. I just had them installed by the Red Baron who did an exceptional job-just No install warranty other than Good Luck.

            After one ride the rim on the back wheel had bumps. This is as if the rim started to deburr. The wheelset is light but obviously poorly constructed. I've returned the product and with hopes, this was an anomaly. I'll review the replacement.

              Rims came ready to go right out of the box.
              I just used them on a century and they were great.
              Wheels spin up fast and I can really feel the difference on the hills

                Bought these on Friday, spun perfect out of the box. I rode over a 100 miles on them on Sunday on the worst bumpy rodes in Marana/Avry Valley. These wheels hold up this 190 lbs rider and seems like I will have 1000s more miles of enjoyment on them. Light wait, great price, cuts through cross wind, climbs with ease. A must have!

                  I got these to replace a set of mavic ksyrium equippe s rims that I bent. They are about the same price except for the sale, which made them about $200 cheaper than replacing the mavics so I pulled the trigger. They are definitely lighter than the mavics. I have about 100 miles and the rear needs to be trued but that is normal and also happened with the mavics. They are narrower than the mavics. They work well with vittoria rubino pro III tires- smooth and fast. I am 6'3" and 205 pounds and so far these hold up as well and perform as well or better than wheels costing hundreds more.
