You may recall that I mentioned an aero wheelset yesterday. By aero, I’m talking 16 bladed spokes on the front wheels and 24 on the back wheel, deep-V clinchers with lightweight hubs, and a scale-tipping experience at just over 1700 grams together. Not bad, eh? Okay, now look at the price. Yep, I’d be doing you a disservice if I didn’t take a minute to endorse Neuvation Wheels.
Oh wait, but it gets better. Are they still too heavy for you? Go for the R28 SLs–at only 1400 grams–for only $400. (In retrospect, considering my personal taste toward hillclimbing, I probably would’ve gone for a pair of these if I’d thought about it a little more.) You want both lightweight and aero? R28 Aeros register at just 100 grams more than the SLs.
The bottom line on these puppies is high quality for a low price. And I haven’t heard a single Neuvation owner complain yet. Just thought I’d pass the word. So if you’re shopping for a wheelset and you don’t have a lot of cash, you now know my recommendation.
