    Comments about Vuelta Corsa SLR Road Wheelset:

    I was basically hoping to buy some speed. Keep hearing best upgrade for speed is wheel set. Being on budget can't spend a fortune on wheels. I really don't think these increased my average speed that much but feel like they made a slight difference.

      Comments about Vuelta Corsa SLR Road Wheelset:

      This was a replacement wheelset due to a freehub body problem with a recent Corsa Lite wheelset. Nashbar offered excellent customer support in making this exchange. Switched to SLR's when the Lites were on back order. So far these wheels have been excellent. True out of the box and have stayed that way. They weighed 1490 grams on my digital scale w/o skewers.- add 116 grams for them. I like the straight pull spokes. Understated graphics (barely readable) may be an issue for some but they don't clash with my bike like some bolder graphics would. I've had Lites in the past and now these SLR's. Can't tell you which I like more - SLR's a little lighter but Lites have deeper rims. Take your pick - you can't go wrong either way. These are very good wheels at a very competitive price.

          Bought 2 sets. One for a tarmac and roubaix. About 300 miles total on both pairs. Both wheelsets are true...New England Roads so they have taken a few potholes.
          Rolls great-passing people on hills with more expensive wheelsets, much lighter than Askiums or Fulcrum 4. Rider is 175 pounds..Just time will tell for durability..From the build, I believe they will last...Seems to be a great deal overall.

            Fast wheels, esp. considering the rock-bottom price tag. Dished perfectly/true upon delivery; they spin-up/maintain speed nicely enough--at least as well as much more expensive Mavic Ksyrium Elites. Only 100-150 K on them so far, so long-term durability remains to be seen. Small QC/UPC code stickers on front and rear wheels were applied haphazardly, so that they were actually ON THE RIM'S MACHINED BRAKE TRACK! Had to peel them off before riding. I mean, come on. Other than that, they're heavieer than one may assume from the Nashbar's (and others') blurb: True weight, WITH SKEWERS, is 1580g vs. the 1464g quoted in most specs. Just thought you'd like to know, considering most manufacturers (except maybe HED and 1-2 others), not to mention retailers, won't specify weights with and/or without skewers. Makes a huge difference, though.

                Bought two pairs, one for Tarmac 06 and one for Roubaix 2015. They roll great. I am often beating people downhill. They are pedaling and I am not. Very lite. Much lighter than Mavic Askim and lighter than Fulcrum 4's. Only put about 300 miles total on both wheelsets. So really not that many miles. They seem they will hold up. Time will tell. If they dont, I plan to take advantage of Nashbar forever guarantee. Might true them before winter of 2015 comes. Price just cant be beat. I am 180 pounds. I did put a 70 mile ride on one set and they came out fine.

                  Best price for light rims. It was a lot quieter than Corsa lite wheel set. whoever, the ride quality is stiffer than Corsa lite which has a smoother ride. Over all I like it so far. I only owned it for 2 weeks and only time will tell if it last as long.

                    I need new wheels to upgrade my current components from 10 to 11 speed. It also too 1 pound off from my current set.

                      My set weighed in at:
                      Front: 660g
                      Rear 820g
                      1480g total.

                      I'm 165-175 lbs. Spins great, solid wheel and light. I feel the lateral stiffness of the wheel is lacking, probably due to the small sized spokes. Other than that .. great wheel for the price.

                      Tried 2 different sets of these and they both would not stay true even after bike shop retrueded. This is due to my weight (230lbs). If you are <180lbs riding on good roads don't hesitate, you will not find better wheels for the money.180-200lbs proceed cautiously. Over 210lbs don't waste your time. I am now using the Corsa Lites and they are holding up better than the SLRs even though they are a lower spoke count.
