I have been running these for over a year now and they are s solid wheel set. Significant improvement to my steel stock wheel set. I have rim brakes and using the provided pads. They perform well on descents. very happy with the quality and price point of these wheels. Only issue I had was registering for warranty when Hayes took over. They do not use the same email system Reynolds did. Told me to keep my receipt?
Breaking power is unusable in descents, at least with the provided pads, even in dry conditions. Do not buy. Consider these carbon wheels only with rim brakes. Also rear hub came mounted but with looseness in the order of mm. Otherwise, in terms of speed they are very satisfying, very fast, a huge difference comparing with my previous stock aluminium box profile wheels. They are also very light and stiff, so I use them for climbing with no problems in my Trek Emonda.
I have been a Reynolds customer for quite a while, I thing nothing will be better than the old 58 aero wheel. Unfortunately a have a crash and I was able to get an upgrade to the new 58AR. Let me tell you that I have running this wheels for about 15 days already and the run smoothly, very light and responsive. I really love them, not to tell you that I’m looking to try them with tubeless. I’m very satisfied with the set of wheel. I recommend them 100%.
Loved my original Reynolds wheels, warranty department replaced with no hassles.
