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)

    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..

            I average about 100-150 miles per month. I am not your typical "leaned" out rider. Maybe if I road more...well you get the drift.

            I wanted a more durable wheel than what I had. The 36-spoke Vuelta Corsa HD Road Wheelset gave me exactly what I was looking for without sacrificing speed. My bike felt more rigid and in touch with the road AND I picked up close to an extra 1MPH. I highly recommend.

            Just so you all know... I bought my first pair of these beasts about 5 years ago and mounted them on my Cannondale synapse. I am 6'4" and 260 lbs. these wheels work for me FLAWLWSS!!!! two separate week long tours, 4 two day double century rides and a one day 204 mile "Day of Pain" and all the evening and weekend rec rides I could squeeze in over the past 5 seasons. Finally this past weekend I snapped my first spoke!
            I will get my current pair repaired, but I am here to buy a backup set cause I love them so MUCH!!!!

                Box falling apart on delivery. Decent product. Don't forget to use the 9 speed spacer. Pre-installed rim strip is nice.
