Hand assembled to the same precision as all our Astuto products and trued on PK LIE stands. We have many of these wheelsets running continuously for more than 5yrs with no issues at all. We've rarely experienced even a rim burnout. They just last forever and roll smooth a very long time. These are designated for clincher (tube) use only, but some people tape them up and run tubeless too! We don't recommend it - but the rim is super strong and holds up fine even under these conditions.
We have a few boxes left and sadly saying goodbye to this series and moving onward with new products. So, the closeout is your benefit to snag a superb set of wheels for incredibly low price.
