I dont have a lot a experience yet on various wheels and these are my first carbon. Nonetheless i love them overall. From the look to the sound and feel. Overall i feel much more confident (&faster)

I was at 8kg even before. After changing the wheels and ties i am at 7.54kg. [that's with everything, computer, barfly, 2 cages, toolbox, lights, etc.]

I think the hed are great as an everyday carbon wheel.

There are lighter, stiffer and equally good looking options around (Praxis chainrings seem to be the new cool stuff, for instance).


thanks. i'll check out the praxis.
