    Nice wheels but some watch-outs

    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.

        Comments about Vuelta Corsa SLR Road Wheelset:

        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.

              Made my Addict SL so lively and quick
              I knew in amoment it was these hoops and new slicks
              A little bit more fragile
              and a bit less agile
              than the Easton EA90 SLX
              but rolls much better despite bearings not ceramic
              Feels like you have and extra gear
              You'll climb up hill like a deer
              At this price
              Go ahead roll the dice

              Comments about Vuelta Corsa SLR Road Wheelset:

              As of this writing, I only have about 75 miles on these wheels. So far, so good. I am 140 pounds and purchased these wheels to replace the OEM wheels on a 2013 Focus Cayo Evo. Since I purchased the bike earlier this year, I didn't want to spend a bunch of money on new wheels as well.

              Although I haven't weighed the wheels, I can tell that they are lighter than the Fulcrum 6.5 wheels that came with the bike, and they of course lighten up the bike overall. The wheels spin well and the decals do not look too splashy or cheap.

              I do have a set of Mavic Kysrium Elites on my other road bike. While the Vuelta's have been great so far and are about 100 grahms lighter than my Mavic wheels, I think I prefer the Mavics just a touch. It is hard to explain, but the Mavics feel a bit more solid and more durable. Maybe you do get more of a solid product when you pay a few hundred dollars more. Having said that, the Vueltas provide a great ride, have gotten great reviews by other riders and they seem to offer a good value proposition.

                Comments about Vuelta Corsa SLR Road Wheelset:

                I purchased these wheel two and halfs years ago as a upgrade from the stock wheels that my Madone came with, and to this date it has been the BEST upgrade and investment I have done. What more can anyone ask, 17,000 miles and not one problem!! I'm not a light weight rider 5'6" 185-190. And these wheels have not had any issues. I commute to work 38 miles round trip three to four times a week and on weekends the LBS rides usally around 40 miles, and If I have some time I do solo rides at around 40-50 miles. Than we have our local road races that I use the same rims and do not change a thing!
                They have NEVER let me down. My son also races and he was having trouble keeping his wheels true and breaking spokes after long 70+ mile hammer fest. I got him a set Vuelta SL and last year he made two podems out of five crit races. My local bike shop took pictures of my milage on my bike computor so he can show the rep. Your money will be well invested with these wheels and NOTHING else on the market comes close price, quality,weight, durability.
