Vuelta Corsa Lite Road Wheelset
Looking for a solid upgrade? The Vuelta Corsa Lite Road Wheelset is probably the most versatile set of hoops you'll lay eyes on. Weighing in at a lean and mean 1570 grams for the pair, these alloy road wheels feature a 27mm deep rim, so they're nice and light but still slice through the wind for that all-important aerodynamic advantage. The CNC-machined brake track provides excellent all-weather performance while the hubs spin on Japanese-made EZO 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.
  • 27mm deep rims are made of extra stiff, lightweight 6066 aluminum alloy
  • CNC-machined brake wall provides responsive, precise braking performance
  • Triple butted aero spokes help the wheel in the aero department, and make a tougher build so they won't go out of true
  • Japanese-made EZO cartridge bearings spin fast and roll smooth
  • Hand built to ensure perfect tension and true
  • Shimano/SRAM 11-speed compatible (w/ spacer for 8/9/10-speed cassettes)
  • 1570g (pair)

    Comments about Vuelta Corsa Lite Road Wheelset:

    I've ridden these for about 3-4k miles on really gnarly roads in Oakland, CA and the Bronx. They still haven't ever needed to be trued. Lightweight and extremely well-made. Skip the name brands and get something that works.

      Comments about Vuelta Corsa Lite Road Wheelset:

      I bought these for a Mt Washington hill climb bike that I've put together. For a rather low price this wheels are quite light and well built. I'll try them out on my regular road bike and may buy another set to have as a spare set.

        Came true. Only have 200 miles on them so far, but they have been rolling smooth. First wheel purchase. Seems to be good value for cost for those trying to spend less than 500 bucks on a new wheels. I have not weighed them individually, but shaved a couple lbs off my old steel roadie making for more pleasant climbs, and extended rides.

        Comments about Vuelta Corsa Lite Road Wheelset:

        These are my second set of Corsa Lites. I sold the first set with my previous bike, but I liked them so much I had to have another set. As others have said, they spin up fast, roll forever and are plenty stiff. Yet they give a good ride. I'm 240 pounds and ride plenty of fast group rides, do plenty of hill rides and they remain true. At this price, I wouldn't mind buying them every two years, but I doubt that's necessary. If you're looking for an upgrade over your stock wheels, you won't be disappointed. I even tried Mavic Aksiums. The Vuelta Corsa Lites have them beat easily.

        Comments about Vuelta Corsa Lite Road Wheelset:

        I weigh 225 pounds and I am hard on equipment. These wheels last me about 5,000 miles before they start breaking spokes and then I turn them into freebies. This is my third set. $800 wheels wheels last me about 8000 miles before rim cracking, paws problems, and spokes breaking. For me it is cheaper to buy these and just toss when they go bad. Wheels come true and stay true till a spoke breaks. Very light and spin up quickly.

        For me this rim has the best bang for the buck. Don't pay much, don't expect much, and has a reasonable life considering the curb jumping and potholes I hit.

          I've had these wheels since about July of 2015. So far so good. they came well packaged and were at the advertised weight. I've put about 7-8000 miles on them and have had 0 problems. I weigh about 210lbs and normally ride on bad roads. the wheels have stayed true and no broken spokes. I will buy another set for my other bike.

            This is my first upgrade to a nice rim set though I've been biking heavily for 6 or 7 years now. These rims are great, well balanced and a smooth frictionless ride. Though I didn't use the skewers that came with them, rather some locking bolt skewers I already had. My only complaint would be the clicking of the hub spinning when you're not pedaling is very loud, louder at least than any other shimano hub i've ever had. Though it's not that big of a deal.

              Comments about Vuelta Corsa Lite Road Wheelset:

              I did not ride the wheels at all, because after opening the box and measuring them I noticed that they were narrower than advertised. I'm sure they are good wheels, and they are certainly true right out of the box and light; however, they are too narrow for me.

                  I bought a set of these wheels 5 or 6 years ago and had good luck with them. Given my experience with Vuelta, i ordered up another pair for this year...as good as ever. Relatively lite, durable, tight.

                    Bought these to replace a good set of wheels past the end of their useful life (17 years). The Vuettas are at least 1 mph faster than my old reliable. Based on a few tens of miles, they are holding true and seem well-built. The hubs do have a notable click when freewheeling, kind of takes me back to the really old days with actual freewheels. I'm pleased.
