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:

    I'm a heavier rider (230lbs). After snapping a rear spoke on a ride and constantly having to re-true my rear wheel, I wanted to find something more strong and durable than the 20 spokes I had in the rear wheel. These wheels can hold and handle the weight which makes me feel safer on my rides. They look sharp too! Look forward to putting many miles on them. If your a heavier build like me, you need to check these out.

      Put over 1000's miles on these wheels since I got them in mid march and I haven't popped a spoke or needed a truing yet. I'm a big guy and I ride with power and can't always get out of the way of potholes. Great wheels, especially for the price.

        Comments about Vuelta Corsa HD Road Wheelset:

        700c wheels for the road in a narrow rim and 25mm tires have been a nightmare for my entire 45 years of serious cycling. I train to be strong, and I am 195 pounds, this combination diminishes the life of a wheel to just a few thousand miles before it begins to break down. Vuelta rims are the only rim I have used in my life that when I broke a spoke on a 24 spoke wheel, it did not go out of true. That is how strong these wheels are. Over kill for a lightweight rider or someone who doesn't push the limits. The cassette bearings are beautifully smooth. Some call this wheel heavy, I don't, the weight is necessary for strength and I want the weight.

        Comments about Vuelta Corsa HD Road Wheelset:

        Just thought I'd post an update. I've now had a pair on my road bike for more than two years and still haven't had to touch them to true or re-tension. I had a second trouble free pair on my CX bike all last season...a summer's worth of gravel grinders and then a full season of CX races. One CX race involved riding half a lap with a flat tire, over rocks, roots and holes (I figured a damaged rim was inevitable). Imagine my surprise on putting the bike in the workstand afterwards only to find the wheel still in perfect shape! I figured that at 6'5" and 215# an unprotected, bottoming out rim would have at least had some wobbles and flat spots, but there was nothing of the sort! These wheels are fantastic for us big guys!

          Comments about Vuelta Corsa HD Road Wheelset:

          I've had these rims for two full seasons, and I've never had any issue with them. I use them mostly during my commute. No spoke tightening or hub maintenance has been necessary. They are not light wheels, but that is not the point of these. I weigh in the 250 range most of the time and have put over 8,000 miles on these hogs. I highly recommend these if you are a bigger person or just want a super-durable wheelset.

          Trashed my rear Mavic Ksyrium Elite rear wheel.
          I am a big rider #260. Was dubious of the wheels but that's what came on my bike. I was not going to fork out $1000.00 for a wheelset designed for a much lighter rider.Same day had Nashbar E-Mail. Wheels were $100 off and an additional 25 off. It just so happened that I had talked w/tech support about Vuelta hd's in the past. Figured why not. Put 200 mi. last week. Have hit a couple of winter potholes @30+MPH. No problems, big guys you cant go wrong! Xtra weight worth piece of mind.

          I commute 24 miles a day with at least one pannier but most of the time two fully loaded for my day. I kept popping rear spokes on the stock Alex rims that came on my steel framed Jamis Quest. Read the reviews on here and went for it. COULD NOT BE HAPPIER! Several hundred miles already, staying true and tensioned, no flats! Very reliable.

          Solid Wheelset for a Solid (ahem) Rider

            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.

              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.
