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 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.

                I've only rode 200 miles on this wheelset. So far its been great. Still true in spite the many5 potholes I hit. A pleasant surprise for the value. I would definitely buy again, and recommend.

                  Comments about Vuelta Corsa Lite Road Wheelset:

                  I checked "avid cyclist," not because of years of experience, but because, since July, I have been riding regularly. I have a Cannondale CAAD 8 Claris and weigh roughly 200 pounds at 6'. I bought these wheels as a step up from the Maddux R3.0 that came on the bike. They are lighter, for sure. I took them out on a ride today of about 18 miles as a test and used a route I have used several times. The most noticeable thing is a smoother ride over rough pavement. Also, while I suppose there could be other factors, I finished the route with an increase in average speed of .5mph. Not sure if that's attributable to the wheels.

                  I'll keep running them in and edit this if required.

                  Comments about Vuelta Corsa Lite Road Wheelset:

                  I was surprised at the quality of these rims at this price point. All components are high quality, and the hubs roll forever! I confirmed the weight pair at 1580gr. The decals are understated which I like. The 24 spoke rear has held my 210 lbs thru rough terrain and the occaisional pot hole. Have not had to true them yet. I like these so much, I have bought three pairs to replace factory OEM rims on my three bike.

                    Replaced my name brand stock wheels, tires and tubes and cut a pound off my wheel weight at a Nashbar bargain price. I've put 200+ miles on the new wheels and so far I'm extremely peased with the upgrade.
